All-Night BBQ on Food Network

Tonight, Food Network is dedicating a two-hour primetime block to a great American backyard pastime.  Beginning at 7 p.m. CT, Guy Fieri visits purveyors of barbecue across the country (including BBQ Shack in Suddenlink-served Paola, Kan.) in three classic, back-to-back “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” episodes.

Then on “Mystery Diners,” the owner of Cooper’s Old Time Pit Bar-B-Que in Texas sends the crew to a competing restaurant to find out if they’ve stolen his secret family recipe.

Hungry yet?  You can find plenty of barbecue tips and recipes at Food Network’s Grilling Central and BBQ How-Tos.

Food Network is available to virtually all Suddenlink customers who have what is commonly known as Expanded Basic TV service.

Four More Communities Get Phone Service

While we have competitive phone service deployed to the overwhelming majority of our service areas, we continue working to expand it. The latest communities to receive this service are Paola, Kan.; Weatherford, Okla.; and Daingerfield and Navasota, Texas.

Suddenlink Home Phone offers unlimited local and domestic long-distance calls, plus the most popular calling features – including caller ID, call waiting, 3-way calling, anonymous call rejection and call forwarding. Voice mail and international calls are also available at competitive rates. Importantly, Suddenlink Home Phone provides automatic access to the FCC-mandated Enhanced 911 system and is compatible with most modern alarm monitoring equipment.
