Suddenlink is upgrading to all-digital TV
Suddenlink announced this week that it is continuing to upgrade technology in Ruston and Grambling 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.
As a result of this program, recent Suddenlink improvements include adding more high-definition channels and increasing the speeds of existing Internet services.
The next phase of the local work will facilitate a new, all-digital TV lineup. Digital TV features sharper pictures and better sound quality. The transition to this new lineup will be completed in different neighborhoods at different times through 2011. Suddenlink will notify local customers multiple times before their neighborhood is converted to the new digital lineup. The company also will provide instructions to help customers determine if they require digital adapters — also known as “DigitaLinks” — which enable digital channel viewing.
