Suddenlink goes over-the-top with video offerings

Suddenlink has become the latest--and perhaps even the most aggressive--MSO to demonstrate that cable's broadband data capabilities are leading the industry's business. Video, once the bulwark of the cable TV business, has now become an application that runs on the MSOs' broadband pipes.

The St. Louis-based MSO has launched an online video service that takes what was traditionally available on TV and places it on the Web. Called Suddenlink2GO, the new offering features 1,300 movies and "tens of thousands" of TV episodes and shorter video clips available to computers and/or other devices with high-speed Internet connections.

Also not to be forgotten, the service, which is available to Suddenlink subscribers at no extra charge, is the incorporation of Hulu's content as well.
