Monticello, Minn. residents now have a choice of TV provider

Experience TV like never before with TDS TV®. Brought to you by TDS Telecommunications Corp. (TDS®), TDS TV is now available to people living in the city of Monticello, Minn.

“First we brought you fiber to the home. Now, we’re excited to bring you a new choice when it comes to TV service,” says Tom Ollig, associate market manager for TDS. “This isn’t cable, and it’s not satellite. It’s an alternative that we know you’ll really like.”

Powered by Microsoft® Mediaroom®, TDS TV is the most advanced TV service available in Monticello. It features more than 240 all-digital channels (including HD), video-on-demand and pay-per-view, picture-in-picture channel surfing, instant channel change, and a Connected-Home DVR.

The Connected-Home DVR, which comes standard with TDS TV service, lets customers enjoy the features and functionality of one DVR on multiple TVs in their home.

“If you thought a DVR changed the way you watched TV, wait until you get our Connected-Home DVR,” says Ollig. “The things it lets you do with your programming are pretty incredible.”

With the Connected-Home DVR, customers can record up to four shows at one time, watch and manage recordings from any TV in the home, and pause a show in one room, then pick it up in another. Customers can also store up to 400 hours of standard-definition programming.
