AT&T U-verse TV Lineup Expands to Include Six New HD Channels from MTV Networks
Dallas, Texas, May 15, 2009
AT&T* today announced the expansion of the AT&T U-verseSM TV High Definition (HD) channel lineup to include six new HD channels from MTV Networks. The HD channel additions follow a recent expansion of the U-verse TV channel lineup to include more international programming channels and 100 or more HD channels in every U-verse TV market in early March.
U-verse TV customers can now enjoy MTV HD, VH1 HD, CMT HD, Nickelodeon HD, COMEDY CENTRAL HD and Spike HD as part of their existing HD service subscription, depending on their programming package. With the new additions, the U-verse TV HD channel lineup continues to exceed the HD channel lineups offered by the major local cable providers in every U-verse TV market.
"We've made the U-verse TV HD experience better again by expanding our HD channel lineup to include these popular networks," said Dan York, executive vice president of content and programming, AT&T Converged Services. "These HD additions help us with several strategic content initiatives and allow us to continue to deliver more HD channels than the major local cable providers, all at a great value."
AT&T U-verse TV has two HD options. HD service is included with the U450 programming package or is available for an additional $10 a month with any other U-verse TV programming package. U-verse HD customers can get even more HD-exclusive channels with the HD Premium Tier for an additional $5 a month. All U-verse TV packages include HD-ready equipment, and most packages include an HD-ready Total Home DVR, which gives you the ability to record your HD programs from a single DVR and watch them on any connected TV.
AT&T U-verse TV is the only 100 percent Internet Protocol-based television (IPTV) service offered by a national service provider, making AT&T U-verse one of the most dynamic and feature-rich services available today. AT&T U-verse TV ranked "Highest in Residential Television Service Satisfaction in the North Central, South, and West Regions," according to the J.D. Power and Associates 2008 Residential Television Service Provider Satisfaction StudySM.
