Mandalay Signs Deal with Cox Communications

9 September 2003

LAS VEGAS --Cox Communications has signed an agreement with Mandalay Resort Group to offer digital on-demand television service, high-speed Internet service and wireless keyboard access at five of the company's resorts in Las Vegas.

The service will be offered through Cox Communications' Hospitality Network, which offers in-room video and data technology services to the casino industry. In the past, Cox used a bank of VCRs and videotapes to provide on-demand television services. The new digital service, which runs off computer hard drives, replaces the tapes, Cox said.

"This new technology will continue to keep our resorts on the cutting edge of guest amenities while increasing the cash flow opportunities at our properties," said Mandalay Resort Group marketing chief John Marz.

Cox recently inked a deal with MGM MIRAGE to offer similar digital services for resort guests.

The Greenspun family, owner of the Las Vegas Sun, is a minority investor in Cox's Las Vegas operation.
