Suddenlink Upgrading to All-Digital TV in Lecompte
Some TV Sets May Require Digital Adapters


LECOMPTE, La. (Aug. 23, 2012) – Suddenlink announced today that it is upgrading technology in Lecompte as part of a larger, three-year, companywide program that calls for approximately $350 million of capital investments above and beyond traditional capital spending levels.

The first phase of local work in Lecompte will facilitate a new, all-digital TV lineup. Digital TV features superior picture and sound quality. The transition to the new lineup will be completed as early as the end of September.

Suddenlink customers in Lecompte will soon receive information by mail notifying them about a process for getting and installing digital adapters – also known as “DigitaLinks” – which enable digital channel viewing. Customers will generally require these devices, if their TV sets:
* Are not connected to a Suddenlink digital cable box, also known as a set-top box or receiver
* Do not have a Suddenlink CableCARD installed
* Are not connected to a digital cable-ready device – such as a TiVo box – with a Suddenlink CableCARD installed.

The company will provide DigitaLink devices for all customers’ TV sets that require them. There is no up-front fee or monthly charge, and customers who do not wish to install these devices on their own can schedule free professional installation through Suddenlink.

When the transition to the new lineup is completed, customers will have access to more than 160 new channels, including many high-definition (HD) channels and Video on Demand (VOD) service. Suddenlink also will launch High Speed Internet 20.0 service, featuring a download speed up to 20 Megabits per second (Mbps). It will be the fastest residential Internet service in the area.

More information about local Suddenlink services is available by visiting the company’s website (suddenlink.com) and entering an address and zip code, or by calling toll-free 866-220-5515.

Suddenlink Communications (suddenlink.com) is the seventh largest cable operator in the United States, supporting the information, communication and entertainment demands of approximately 1.4 million residential customers and thousands of commercial customers in Arkansas, Louisiana, Missouri, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Texas, West Virginia and elsewhere. Suddenlink simplifies its customers’ lives through one call for support, one connection, and one bill for TV, Internet, phone and other services..
