The votes have been tallied and “Pitch Perfect” won the 16th spot in our April Movie Madness tournament. 

This 16-movie bracket includes March’s most-purchased Suddenlink Video on Demand (VOD) movies, “seeded” according to popularity. For the next four weeks, our official counters will tell us which movie from each pairing was purchased the most through Suddenlink VOD during the preceding week.  We’ll announce those results on Tuesdays, and the best performers will advance to the next round until a champion is crowned.

In addition to weekly results, we’ll be sharing related movie trivia and fun facts throughout the tournament.

If you’re so inclined, fill out your bracket now, and see how well you do predicting the winners.

Suddenlink Fish Tourney Helps San Angelo Hospice

Hospice of San Angelo (HOSA) recently received $24,000, representing proceeds from the Suddenlink Tony Gibson Memorial Fishing Tournament. The San Angelo (Texas) Standard-Times reported today that the tournament is the largest single fundraiser of the year for HOSA, and this year’s donation was the largest in tournament history. Since 2010, the tournament has raised $71,000.

HOSA wasn’t the only big winner Saturday. San Angelo resident Ronnie Wallace was named top angler with a record-setting 29.7 pounds of fish in his five-bass limit. Included was the tournament’s largest fish, a 9.79-pound bass. Wallace won $2,200 for first place and an additional $785 for the Big Bass prize.

The tournament featured added support from the Outdoor Channel and public appearances by Joe Thomas, host of “Stihl’s Reel in the Outdoors” on the Outdoor Channel. Pictured above are (left to right) Thomas, Suddenlink System Manager Monica Kincer, HOSA Executive Director David McBride, Outdoor Channel Representative Christy Benson, and Suddenlink Business Operations Manager Corey Peddy.

Pick the April Movie Madness Wildcard

With the NCAA men’s basketball tournament wrapping up Monday, we’re going to keep “bracket fever” burning a little while longer with a competition of our own called April Movie Madness. Here’s out it works: 

  • We’ve crafted a 16-movie bracket from March’s most-purchased Suddenlink Video on Demand (VOD) movies and “seeded” them according to popularity. 
  • The competition will start Tuesday, April 9.  Before then, there’s an open wildcard slot — and you get to choose which of two movies will take that final position in the tournament.  Use the poll below to register your vote.
  • We’ll announce the wildcard winner on Tuesday, and the first round of April Movie Madness will officially begin.
Each week thereafter, we’ll ask the official counters to tell us which movie from each pairing was purchased the most through Suddenlink VOD during the preceding week.  The best performers will advance to the next round until a champion is crowned.
