BendBroadband is launching TDS TV+, a cloud-based video service that combines customers' live TV - including local broadcast channels, regional sports content, and national cable channels - with streaming services like Netflix, video on demand (VOD), and apps through TV Everywhere.
"TDS TV+ gives customers complete control over their TV viewing experience," said Shane West, senior vice president of Marketing, Sales and Customer Operations for TDS, BendBroadband's parent company. "It makes TV easy and enjoyable again - we're thrilled to begin offering this groundbreaking product in a forward-thinking community like Bend."
TDS TV+ provides user recommendations, a voice-activated remote, and the ability to stream live TV and recordings at home on personal devices or on-the-go with TV Everywhere.
"I think central Oregonians are going to be really pleased with the experience," said Julie Maiers, vice president of Marketing and Product Development for TDS.
TDS TV+ allows customers to search, schedule, record and watch content all from one place. The service allows simultaneously recording of up to 10 shows and storing up to 300 hours of programming depending on storage tier.
BendBroadband customers can also receive Internet speeds from 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps.
"Since 2014, BendBroadband has invested close to $50 million in its network infrastructure in central Oregon," said West. "Now is the perfect time for customers to check out our faster speeds and brand-new TV experience."
