CenturyLink Launches Prism TV over Gigabit Network in Portland

  • CenturyLink
PORTLAND, OR — CenturyLink announced that some Portland residents and businesses can now subscribe to Prism TV, an interactive TV service delivered through CenturyLink's nationwide fiber optic network. Prism TV is an alternative to cable and satellite services and provides customers with the latest in entertainment technology.

In 2014, CenturyLink deployed fiber-enabled 1 gigabit broadband service to residential and business customers in Portland and is now making additional investments to offer Prism TV service.

Prism TV Delivers a Digital Connection to the Home
"We are continuing to deliver on our promise to be a technology leader in Portland and we're pleased to offer new, innovative technology to our Portland customers with the release of our Prism TV services," said Darrion Bowers, CenturyLink vice president of operations for Oregon and southwest Washington. "Unlike other television services in Portland, Prism TV delivers a digital connection to the home, providing a combination of interactive features and more HD channels than cable and satellite."

"There is no doubt that Portland is a hub for innovation, and the launch of CenturyLink's Prism TV service brings more best-in-class television service options to the city," said Portland Mayor Charlie Hales. "Thanks to CenturyLink's recent 1 gigabit infrastructure build-out, Portland residents will now have unparalleled accessibility to content and connectivity in both their homes and businesses."

Advanced features offered by Prism TV include a wireless set-top box, whole-home DVR, a mobile app for watching programming at home or on the go, video on demand and an app center for accessing social network sites. In addition, Prism TV offers premium mobile content from HBO GO, MAX GO, STARZ Play and SHOWTIME Anytime, and a large selection of sports channels, including the NFL Network, SEC Network, Pac-12 Network and Big Ten Network.

A Market that Favors Competitive TV Services
"A competitive TV service has become one of the defining characteristics of a technologically progressive market, and GPI is proud to support CenturyLink for helping the Portland area claim this distinction," said Janet LaBar, president and CEO of Greater Portland Inc. "We're confident that the new Prism TV service will not only impress the public, but also improve the lives of community members."

Prism TV is currently available to Portland residents and businesses with fiber service in the Sunnyside, Hawthorne, Belmont, Richmond, Mt. Tabor, Kerns, Hosford-Abernethy, Creston-Kenilworth, Sellwood-Moreland, Buckman, Brooklyn and Laurelhurst neighborhoods.
