Suddenlink Goes Over-the-Top With TiVo

YouTube and Facebook on the menu, but Netflix and Hulu Plus aren't in MSO's initial launch

Suddenlink Communications' debut of the TiVo Premiere DVR in two
Texas markets will serve a smorgasbord of Internet-delivered content
ranging from YouTube video clips to Facebook status updates -- but lacks
other popular services such as Netflix and Hulu Plus.

The MSO's customers in Lubbock and Midland, Texas, will get first
crack at the TiVo box, offered for $15 per month, the same rate as
Suddenlink's other DVR set-tops. Suddenlink plans to expand to
additional markets in 2011.

One of the key features Suddenlink is touting is the ability to
search across TV listings, Web content and Suddenlink's video-on-demand
library -- 6,000 titles, 500 of which are in HD -- through a single
interface. The MSO announced its partnership with TiVo in July.
