Windstream enhances Lifetime Price Guarantee with digital TV from DISH Network
Aggressive offer promises even bigger savings for customers; chance to win free service for life

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Windstream (Nasdaq: WIN) announced today the launch of an unprecedented triple play Lifetime Price Guarantee, adding a high-definition digital TV package from DISH Network to its existing offer of high-speed Internet and unlimited nationwide calling.  Windstream's Lifetime Price Guarantee provides customers with a locked-in, monthly rate for life.
 
The addition of DISH Network bolsters Windstream’s original double play Lifetime Price Guarantee launched in 2009, which also offers a fixed price for life for high-speed Internet and unlimited nationwide calling.  Both Lifetime Price Guarantee offers can be purchased without an annual commitment.

“The triple play Lifetime Price Guarantee is a game-changer for Windstream and our industry as it offers customers great value for all of their communications and entertainment services in a way that has never been done before,” said Ric Crane, chief marketing officer for Windstream. "As wallets are stretched thinner every year, this is Windstream’s way of offering peace of mind to our customers by helping them manage future expenses with a set price they can rely on forever.”

The DISH Network package included in the Lifetime Price Guarantee offers local channels in HD where available and dozens of the most popular HD channels such as ESPN, ESPN2, Food Network, HGTV, The Learning Channel, The Weather Channel, TNT, TBS and USA, as well as Video on Demand and music channels.

Windstream also is giving customers the chance to win all three services free for life from The Lifetime Tour, the company’s mobile tour featuring its vintage 1953 green truck. One prize will be awarded each month through October to people living in a Windstream residential area.  Entry details and sweepstakes eligibility is available at www.lifetimetour.com.
