BellSouth Plans To Start Bundling Video Service In South Carolina
Charlestown, S.C.-based BellSouth [BLS], which recently added DirecTV service to create an enhanced offering of bundled services, announced today its customers in that Designated Market Area (DMA) now will be able to receive digital-quality local broadcast channels via satellite from DirecTV.
The local package is available to consumers in combination with any DirecTV “Total Choice” programming package. The combined programming package is available for $39.99, and it offers more than 130 channels.
BellSouth also is offering its customers a chance to save as much as an additional $10 off the price of bundled telecommunications services when they add DirecTV service to their existing “BellSouth Answers” package.
