Suddenlink announced the roll out of its new TV caller ID service free of charge for its North Carolina customers.
In order to see the incoming calls on their TVs, Suddenlink subscribers in North Carolina need to have combination of the company’s phone and digital video services.
“TV caller ID is just another way Suddenlink keeps getting better, providing the latest in innovative products and technology for our customers’ benefit,” said Phil Ahlschlager, senior vice president of operations for Suddenlink’s North Carolina Region.
A spokesman for Suddenlink said the company serves approximately 93,000 residential customer households, and a number of commercial customers, in eastern North Carolina.
Suddenlink is using Integra5’s Converged Services Platform (i5 CSP) to offer the new TV Caller ID service. The i5 CSP helps video providers, video programmers, and wireless operators deliver next-generation communications and social media experiences to multiple consumer devices.
Caller ID on TV has become almost a ubiquitous feature for service providers. Cable operators such as Time Warner Cable, Cox Communications, Cablevision, Videotron, and Comcast have deployed the service to their customers (see story here http://www.cedmagazine.com/Cox-Caller-ID-TV.aspx ) while Intergra5’s Caller ID to PC service has also been rolled out.
