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.

All-Digital Upgrade Finished in Flagstaff

Today, we completed the transition to an all-digital TV lineup in Flagstaff, Ariz., providing customers with superior picture and sound quality.

After the conversion was completed, we introduced a host of new high-definition (HD) channels to the TV lineup. Among them are: broadcast stations KTAZ HD (Telemundo) and KTVW HD (Univision), as well as MSNBC HD, OWN HD, Disney XD HD, The Hub HD, Planet Green HD, Investigation Discovery HD, Science Channel HD, BBC America HD, H2 HD, Biography Channel HD, Hallmark Channel HD, WeTV HD, Fuse HD, IFC HD, Hallmark Movie Channel HD and HBO2 HD.

These changes are part of Project Imagine. We will continue to announce launches of new and enhanced services as they are confirmed.

Camp Verde, Ariz., Gets Faster Internet Speeds

Effective yesterday, Suddenlink began offering two new high-speed Internet service options for residential customers in Camp Verde, Ariz., with download speeds up to 10 and 15 Megabits per second (Mbps). Suddenlink High Speed Internet 15.0 is believed to be the fastest residential Internet service in Camp Verde. The new options — plus an existing option featuring a download speed up to 1.5 Mbps — provide Camp Verde residents the same choices as Suddenlink customers in and around Sedona and Payson.

The service enhancements are the latest elements of a $10 million capital investment program in Arizona. That program already has brought faster Internet speeds and many new TV channels to Kingman and Bullhead City, Flagstaff, Payson, Pine, Strawberry and other Arizona communities.

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.
