According to just-received press release, Suddenlink Communications has launched its new Video on Demand (VOD) service in Magnolia and Waldo. Suddenlink customers with advanced digital TV can now access VOD services by going to Channel 1.
VOD offers thousands of hours of viewing, with many programs in high-definition (HD) format, including movies, sports, news, music and popular cable-network shows. More than a third of the Suddenlink VOD library is free. The rest is available for either a per-view charge or monthly subscription.
VOD allows viewers to order titles of their choice via remote-control, at any time, and have access to those titles for an extended period; typically 24 hours. Viewers can also pause, rewind and fast-forward their choices, much as they do with a VCR (video cassette recorder) or DVR (digital video recorder).
Suddenlink’s VOD library will be regularly updated to make fresh choices available to customers.
Introducing VOD is the latest step in the company’s nationwide capital investment program, calling for approximately $350 million over three years, above and beyond Suddenlink’s traditional capital spending levels. That program already has brought a number of new HD channels to Magnolia and Waldo.
More information about Suddenlink services is available by going to suddenlink.com and entering an address and zip code; by visiting the local Suddenlink store at 1911 N. Jackson St. in Magnolia; or by calling toll-free 888-822-5151.
