Suddenlink debuts TiVo Premiere DVRs in 6 more communities
Suddenlink's deployment of its TiVo Premiere DVR service continues to blossom with the recent addition of six more cities.
The service is now available in El Dorado, Mountain Home and Magnolia, Ark.; Branson and Nixa, Mo.; and Natchitoches, La. The cost for TiVo Premiere is $17 a month in some markets, but overall pricing could vary by market.
Since its debut in December of last year, the service 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.
The TiVo service allows Suddenlink customers to watch on-demand movies and shows and access Internet content from sites such as YouTube.
Earlier this year, Charter Communications announced it was pursuing its multi-room DVR strategy through an agreement with TiVo, while RCN has TiVo Premiere deployed in several of its markets. One of the advantages cable operators have with choosing TiVo is a quick time to market and integration with their video-on-demand systems.
Suddenlink, the nation's seventh-largest cable operator, has 1.3 million residential customers and thousands of commercial customers, primarily in Arkansas, Louisiana, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Texas and West Virginia.
