Arizona Communities Get Trio of TiVo Products

Yesterday, we announced the launch of TiVo® HD/DVRs, TiVo Streams and TiVo Minis in the following Arizona communities: Bullhead City, Cottonwood, Camp Verde, Lake Montezuma, Flagstaff, Lake Havasu City, Kingman, Parker, Payson, Pine, Sedona and Strawberry. We’re the only multichannel TV service provider in these areas to offer the products.

TiVo HD/DVRs offer access to thousands of hours of entertainment choices, including content from our Video on Demand (VOD) library and the Web, all accessible through TiVo’s advanced search and discovery features.

TiVo Stream, when linked to a TiVo HD/DVR, allows customers to watch TV shows around the house wirelessly on iPod Touch, iPads and iPhones and also transfer digital video recordings to these mobile devices for later viewing outside the home.

TiVo Mini is a space-saving device that can also be linked to a TiVo HD/DVR, making it easier and more economical to create an Any-Room DVR experience. Customers can add one or more TiVo Mini devices to their home network for multi-room access to all the features available on their single TiVo HD/DVR.

Arizona Communities Get VOD, TV Caller ID

Suddenlink yesterday launched its Video on Demand (VOD) and TV Caller ID services in the following Arizona communities: Flagstaff, Sedona, Cottonwood, Camp Verde, Lake Montezuma and the Village of Oak Creek. Customers who have Suddenlink digital receivers can enjoy Video on Demand (VOD) service, available on Channel 1.

VOD features thousands of viewing choices, many of them in high-definition (HD) format, including movies, sports, news, music and popular cable-network shows. More than a third of the Suddenlink VOD library is free. The rest is available for either a per-view charge or monthly subscription. Viewers can order titles via remote control at any time.

In another upgrade, customers can now see who’s phoning them on their TV screens with Suddenlink’s TV Caller ID service. When the phone rings, a banner pops up across the bottom of the TV screen to indicate who’s calling. The feature is free, but for it to work, customers must have a minimum combination of Suddenlink Phone and Digital TV.

These service enhancements are the latest elements in a $10 million capital investment program in Arizona and Southern California. That program already has brought faster Internet speeds and many new TV channels to Flagstaff and other Arizona communities.

Sedona Area Gets 120-Plus New TV Channels

Suddenlink has added more than 120 new channels to its TV lineup in Sedona, Cottonwood, Camp Verde, Munds Park, Lake Montezuma, and the Village of Oak Creek, Ariz. The channel additions marked the completion of an upgrade to superior all-digital picture and sound quality.

Included in the new channel lineup are four new channels in Suddenlink’s Basic package, more than 50 new digital channels, and more than 70 new HD channels. Details — including alphabetical and numeric lineups — have been mailed to customers.

The upgraded lineup is another step in a $10 million capital investment program in Arizona and two California communities. That program already has brought faster Internet speeds, video on demand (VOD), and other services to the area.

Earlier this month, Bullhead City and Kingman, Ariz., received more than 90 new TV channels.
