Bright House Networks is a cable television company and the sixth largest MSO [ [http://www.mybrighthouse.com/about_us/company_overview.aspx Company Overview] ] in the United States owned by Advance/Newhouse, headquartered in Syracuse, New York. The company provides service to cities including Indianapolis, Central Florida (Orlando / Daytona Beach areas), Tampa Bay area, Birmingham-Hoover area, west suburban Detroit and Bakersfield. Most of its business is concentrated in Central Florida, where Bright House is the dominant cable system in the Tampa and Orlando TV markets.

These systems were all owned by the Time Warner Entertainment - Advance/Newhouse Partnership but, under a deal struck in 2003, Advance/Newhouse took direct management and operational responsibility for portion of the partnership cable systems roughly equal to their equity. Ostensibly, this was due to A/N's dissatisfaction with Time Warner Cable's strategic direction. Time Warner still owns a stake in Bright House Networks even though Advance/Newhouse runs the day to day operation of the company. Bright House networks provides customers in Central Florida, Tampa Bay and Alabama with Digtial Services.

Bright House Networks currently offers TV Service (analog, digital and HD), high speed internet, wireless home networking, digital home phone, digital business phone, and Pivot cell phone service in most areas. In addition, Bright House operates two regional local news channels -- Bay News 9 in the Tampa Bay market, and Central Florida News 13 in the Orlando market.

Before 1994, some of these systems were fully owned by A/N under the names Vision Cable and Cable Vision (no relation to Cablevision Systems). In some areas, Bright House is the successor to Teleprompter Cable TV, Group W Cable, Strategic Cable, Paragon Cable and the Tampa Bay / Orlando Time Warner Cable systems in Florida.

Naming rights

Bright House Networks owns the naming rights to the University of Central Florida's Bright House Networks Stadium in Orlando, and Bright House Field in Clearwater, Florida, the spring training home of the Philadelphia Phillies.
