Mid South Communities Get TiVo Stream

Today we announced the availability of TiVo® Stream service to many communities in our Mid South region.  TiVo Stream allows customers to stream TV shows around the house wirelessly on iPod Touch, iPads and iPhones, and also transfer DVR-recorded programs to the same mobile devices for later viewing on the go.

Ability to transfer some programs to TiVo Stream devices may be prohibited by the program owners. Android devices and access to video-on-demand content will be added later.

TiVo Stream is now available to our customers in the following Mid South communities (listed by state): ARKANSAS — Arkadelphia, Atkins, Batesville, Clarksville, Dardanelle, Dover, El Dorado, Heber Springs, Helena, Hot Springs Village, Jonesboro, Lamar, London, Magnolia, Malvern, Morrilton, Mountain Home, Newport, Pocahontas, Pottsville and Russellville; LOUISIANA — Alexandria, Bastrop, Bossier City, Boyce, DeRidder, Iowa, Lake Charles, Leesville, Minden, Natchitoches, Ruston, Sulphur and Minden; MISSISSIPPI – Greenville; MISSOURI — Aurora, Branson, Carthage, Monett, Nixa and St. Joseph.

Since October, TiVo Stream has been launched in more than 60 Suddenlink communities in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, New Mexico, North Carolina and Texas. We expect to further expand the availability of TiVo Stream to additional markets in the near future.

Suddenlink Supports Leesville Lions Club Telethon

Suddenlink helped sponsor the Leesville, La., Lions Club Telethon, which raised more than $20,000 for the Louisiana Lions Camp. The camp serves youth with special needs, diabetes and pulmonary disorders.

The Leesville Daily Leader reported Lions Club President Kevin Rhodes’ gratitude to the event’s corporate sponsors.

“Suddenlink provided everything to us for free,” said Rhodes. “Otherwise we’d be talking about this to ourselves.”

“This has been an ongoing partnership for more than 30 years,” said Leesville System Operations and Support Manager Larry Dykes. “We have always provided free channel space to air the telethon. About five years ago, we began providing Internet service as well, which allows the telethon to stream online. This was the first year they asked us to be the sole communications provider, so we provided phone lines to handle all the call volume.”
