Truckee gets video on demand

Special to the Sun

TRUCKEE, Calif. and#8212; Suddenlink Communications has launched its new Video on Demand (VOD) service in Truckee, the company announced Monday. Suddenlink digital customers 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 or DVR.

Suddenlinkand#8217;s VOD library will be regularly updated to make fresh choices available to customers.

Introducing VOD is the latest step in the companyand#8217;s nationwide capital investment program, calling for approximately $350 million over three years, above and beyond Suddenlinkand#8217;s traditional capital spending levels. That program already has brought the benefits of all-digital picture and sound quality to Truckee as well as a number of new HD channels, and soon will be bringing faster Internet speeds.

More information about Suddenlink services is available by visiting suddenlink.com and entering an address and zip code; calling toll-free 1-866-269-4386; or visiting the companyand#8217;s Truckee store at 10607 W. River St. during normal office hours.
