WOW! Internet, Cable & Phone (NYSE: WOW) says it now offers new HSD customers in Charleston, SC, easy access to over-the-top (OTT) streaming services. The option enables customers to choose their preferred streaming service and package. The services lineup includes fuboTV, Philo, SlingTV, and YouTube TV.

The service provider says the streaming services support – which WOW! referred to in a press release as “a trial” – includes free in-home set up and a free Amazon Fire TV Stick. The company notes that cord cutting continues to grow, pointing to a Wall Street Journal article that pegged video subscriber loss as accelerating more than 70% last year, based on public filings. Large cable and satellite video providers lost more than 5.5 million traditional pay-TV subscribers, WOW! continued.

"WOW! has always put a high value on offering choices to consumers. This is one more way we're empowering customers to determine when, where and how they consume information and entertainment," said Teresa Elder, CEO of WOW!. "Our robust broadband network is the natural choice for HSD customers in Charleston who want to access streaming services on their terms."

WOW! did not reveal if and when it might offer the option to existing subscribers or how long the trial will last.
