AXS TV has signed a new multi-year distribution agreement with Suddenlink, the seventh-largest cable distributor in the US.

AXS TV's companion-channel HDNet Movies also renewed its affiliate deal with Suddenlink as part of the overall agreement.

"As one of the most respected cable operators in the industry today, Suddenlink's partnership with AXS TV is a strong endorsement that their subscribers have a great demand for the valuable, specialised programming our network provides," said Jeff Cuban, executive vice president and general manager of AXS TV and HDNet Movies.

"Now, with this deal, Suddenlink subscribers will be able to enjoy the same high quality content we're known for, featuring live broadcasts and performances by today's top musicians, comedians and MMA athletes. As TV's home for music, we are especially excited to give Suddenlink consumers the ultimate front-row experience as we broadcast five of the United States' biggest music festivals throughout the spring and summer."
