SureWest Communications has announced that it is launching online DVR manager and caller ID on TV for its Advanced Digital TV customers in its Sacramento region.

The online DVR manager allows customers to manage their DVR remotely from a Web-connected computer, including scheduling new recordings, editing or canceling previously scheduled recordings, or deleting recordings. Customers can choose to record single episodes or entire series in the same way they do at home. The new online DVR manager feature is currently being offered free for Advanced Digital TV customers who have a DVR and a Digital Basic package or higher.

Caller ID on TV allows customers to see incoming caller information on their TV screens. When a call comes in, a small, transparent bar will appear across the top of the TV screen with the information sent that identifies the number and person calling. They can choose to pause their TV programming to answer the call, or let it go to their SureWest Digital Phone voicemail. This feature is being offered free for qualifying residential triple-play customers.
