Renovated Retail Store Opens in Mountain Home

Yesterday, Suddenlink regional executives, business leaders and local Chamber of Commerce officials cut a ceremonial ribbon opening Suddenlink’s newly renovated retail store at 808 Club Blvd. in Mountain Home, Ark.

The store, a base of operations for 15 employees, now offers customers hands-on interactive displays featuring Suddenlink services. Counters no longer separate salespeople from customers, allowing more personal interaction.

Since last September, Suddenlink has unveiled new or renovated stores in Payson, Ariz.; Arkadelphia, Jonesboro, El Dorado and Russellville, Ark.; Alexandria, Bossier City, Natchitoches and Ruston, La.; Greenwood, Miss.; Branson and St. Joseph, Mo.; Stillwater, Okla.; Abilene, Bryan, Conroe, Little Elm and Lubbock, Texas; and Point Pleasant, W. Va.

TiVo Premiere DVR Comes To Six More Cities

Today, Suddenlink launched the TiVo® Premiere DVR in El Dorado, Mountain Home and Magnolia, Ark., Branson and Nixa, Mo., and Natchitoches, La.

TiVo Premiere combines Suddenlink’s service with TiVo’s best-in-class user interface to offer access to thousands of hours of entertainment choices, including content from Suddenlink’s video-on-demand library and the Web (e.g., YouTube videos), all accessible through TiVo’s advanced search and discovery features.

Suddenlink is the only multichannel TV service provider in the community to offer TiVo Premiere DVR. Since late last year, the device has been launched in the following markets: Amarillo, Andrews, Big Spring, Bryan-College Station, Canyon, Floydada, Georgetown, Huntsville, Lubbock, Midland, Plainview and Tulia, Texas, Clovis, N.M., and Cabot, Ark.

Suddenlink plans to expand the availability of the device to additional markets this year.
