Such tests are all part of ongoing preparations for the primary cutover to digital broadcasting on Feb. 17, 2009.
If you’re a Suddenlink customer and experience a problem during one of these temporary tests — please don’t worry. Suddenlink engineers are aware of these tests, are monitoring them and actively working with the TV stations to address any issues that result. Importantly: Suddenlink engineers are on schedule to have our company facilities ready for the transition on or about Dec. 31 — approximately six weeks before the primary cutover on Feb. 17 — so that, if customer TV sets are hooked up to Suddenlink, they should continue to work just fine.
