Suddenlink's TV Everywhere service resonates with subscribers
After the official launch last month, Suddenlink's TV Everywhere service has proved to be a big hit with subscribers.
While Suddenlink had previously offered TV Everywhere-type content from HBO Go and Max Go , the cable operator's Suddenlink2Go service is a more robust offering that allows subscribers to view content anywhere in the United States via a broadband connection.
According to research by Suddenlink, customers streamed video content through Suddenlink2Go more than 630,000 times last month, for a weekly average of nearly 160,000 streams. In addition, the number of weekly streams increased more than 19 percent in the final week of June compared with the first week.
Total page views for June exceeded 740,000, which Suddenlink said suggested that customers were viewing slightly more than one page (1.17) before they select and stream videos.
Customers who already subscribe to Turner Networks' TBS, TNT, truTV, Cartoon Network and Adult Swim programming can access the content. Authenticated Suddenlink subscribers can also access the content from the networks' websites, and video content is also available from Hulu's Web portal.
Suddenlink2Go was developed in partnership with Synacor, which is the same company Charter Communications announced a TV Everywhere trial with last year .
