Four Texas Communities Get TiVo Premiere DVR

Suddenlink today launched the TiVo® Premiere DVR in Sulphur Springs, Clarksville, Mt. Pleasant, and Paris, Texas. 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, all accessible through TiVo’s advanced search and discovery features.

Customers in these communities who have multiple TiVo® Premiere DVRs from Suddenlink will also be able to start watching a recorded program in one room and continue it in another. For example, Suddenlink customers with three TiVo Premiere DVRs can record up to six shows at the same time, watch recordings on any TV, start watching in one room and resume in another, and have up to 600 hours of recording space.

Suddenlink is the only multichannel TV service provider in these communities to offer the TiVo Premiere DVR.

Since late 2010, the device has been launched in more than 40 Suddenlink communities in Arkansas, California, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Texas, and West Virginia. Suddenlink plans to expand the availability of the device to additional markets throughout 2012.

Eight Texas Communities Get More HD Channels

Yesterday, Suddenlink launched more high-definition (HD) TV channels in Gladewater, Henderson, Jacksonville, Lufkin, Mount Pleasant/Mount Vernon, Nacogdoches, Sulphur Springs and Winnsboro, Texas. The new HD channels include: BBC America HD, Fuel HD, GSN HD, Investigation Discovery HD, OWN HD, Planet Green HD, The Hub HD, QVC HD, HSN HD, The Movie Channel HD and HBO Latino HD.

HDTV offers a widescreen format, similar to a movie theater, with distinctly sharper images and better sound quality than standard TV.

The noted channel additions are part of Project Imagine. We will continue to announce launches of new and enhanced services as they are confirmed.
