U.S. Digital Television (USDTV), the program service that uses over-the-air digital broadcast signals, will deploy its set-top boxes in Norfolk, VA. It’s the fifth market for USDTV and the first on the East Coast.

The company said it would begin broadcasting this spring in the Norfolk/Hampton Roads market over the new digital TV facilities of LIN TV.

USDTV will offer Norfolk subscribers more than 30 all-digital channels from local stations and the company’s lineup of cable networks.

The service includes ESPN, Discovery, Disney and the FOX News Channel for $19.95 a month with a guarantee that the price will not increase for two years. The Starz premium movie channel is also offered for $6.95 a month.

In November 2005, USDTV announced a $25.75 million funding agreement with major media investment partners, including: FOX Television Stations, Hearst-Argyle Television, McGraw-Hill Broadcasting, LIN TV, Morgan Murphy Stations and Telcom DTV.
