ROSEVILLE, Calif. -- Television is now truly interactive with leading independent communications holding company SureWest Communications (Nasdaq: SURW - News). Today, the company announced the launch of i2TV (Internet-to-TV), an interactive video content network created by TellyTopia available only on the SureWest digital TV network in Sacramento.

Utilizing i2TV's online portal, TellyTopia provides the technology whereby anyone, including non-SureWest customers, can upload high-resolution video content through the i2TV Web site at www.i2tv.tv/surewest and watch it on SureWest's channel 702. Similar to Web-based video content sites, videos are uploaded for viewing by a mass audience, but in this case content can be created online and viewed on TV. SureWest is the world's first cable provider to launch this unique interactive channel offered by TellyTopia to its subscribers.

"Once again, SureWest has delivered a cutting-edge and entertaining service to enhance the customer experience," said Peter Drozdoff, SureWest's vice president of marketing. "This new channel allows people to become a part of their TV by creating their own content. The possibilities are limitless. From popular Internet videos to local sports and community events, our customers can watch the best of what the Sacramento market has to offer, exclusively with SureWest."
