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.

MAX 107.0 and MAX 50.0 Service Widens

Today residential customers in Bossier City (including Barksdale Air Force Base), Haughton, Lake Charles and Sulphur, La., and Nixa and Ozark, Mo., can get Suddenlink’s High Speed Internet MAX 107.0 service. MAX 107.0 features a download speed up to 107 megabits per second (Mbps) and an upload speed up to 5 Mbps, the fastest residential service in these communities and among the fastest in the country offered by a major Internet service provider.

These communities are the first in Louisiana and Missouri to receive this service. It was first launched in the Georgetown, Pflugerville and Leander, Texas, area. Subsequently, MAX 107.0 was introduced in Tyler, Whitehouse, Amarillo, Tulia, Lubbock, Post, Shallowater and Wolfforth, Texas, in Gallia, Meigs (Ohio), Mason and Jackson (West Virginia) counties, and most recently in Midland, Texas.

Suddenlink also began offering High Speed Internet MAX 50.0 service to residential customers in Alexandria, Pineville and Natchitoches, La., and Branson, Mo. MAX 50.0 features download speeds of up to 50 Megabits per second (Mbps), the fastest residential Internet service offered in these communities.

This spring, MAX 50.0 rolled out in more than 15 Texas communities. Before that, the service was introduced in a number of other Suddenlink cities, including Tarboro and New Bern, N.C., as well as several towns in other states.

These launches are part of Project Imagine, Suddenlink’s ongoing investment program. We will continue to announce launches of new and enhanced services as they are confirmed.
