For consumers wanting to find a better bundle, AT&T* continues to add more flexibility and more savings to its AT&T U-verse offers. Following the popularity of the “Choice” bundles launched in March, AT&T today introduced new “Choice” bundle options that give consumers even more savings for one year for bundling a complete quad-play of AT&T U-verse TV, U-verse High Speed Internet, U-verse Voice and wireless services — a bundle option not available from most cable providers.

AT&T U-verse Choice bundles let customers choose three services for their bundle — and select home phone or wireless as their voice option — with DVR service and premium features included, a one-year price guarantee and significant monthly savings. The new Choice quad-play bundles are the first to give U-verse consumers additional savings for choosing all four AT&T services.

“With more than three-fourths of our U-verse customers taking a triple or quad-play bundle, we know this is an option consumers want and can’t get from cable,” said Joey Schultz, vice president of consumer marketing, AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets. “We’re giving customers even more reasons to bundle with AT&T. This is an incredible deal that not only gives you savings and one monthly bill, but a full lineup of services that work together to bring you a new level of integrated features, convenience and control.”

In addition to a monthly savings of $30-$45 with a U-verse Choice triple-play bundle for one year, customers who bundle a fourth AT&T service receive an extra $15 in monthly savings, for up to $60 in savings each month for one year.

The AT&T U-verse Choice Plus bundle starts at $172 a month for U-verse TV U300 with Total Home DVR capability; U-verse High Speed Internet Elite (up to 6 Mbps downstream); AT&T Nation 450 wireless voice with unlimited messaging; and unlimited nationwide home phone calling with U-verse Voice Unlimited — providing a savings of $540 for one year.

Choice Premium includes U-verse TV U450 with Total Home DVR capability and  HD service U-verse High Speed Internet Max (up to 12 Mbps downstream); AT&T Nation 450 wireless voice with unlimited messaging; and unlimited nationwide home phone calling for $192 a month and savings of $720 for one year.

Customers who bundle their services with AT&T receive several advanced, integrated features and benefits. AT&T wireless customers have access to the nation’s fastest 3G network, the ability to talk and surf at the same time on its 3G network, the most popular smartphones, and Rollover®, which lets customers keep the minutes they don’t use.

AT&T U-verse High Speed Internet packages and qualifying AT&T smartphone plans also include access to the nation’s largest Wi-Fi network at more than 20,000 AT&T Wi-Fi Hot Spots.

And AT&T wireless, TV, Internet, and home phone services work together so you can program your U-verse DVR from your PC or wireless phone; track your personalized college basketball bracket or fantasy football league that you create online on your U-verse TV screen; check your wireless and U-verse Voice messages from a single voice mailbox; or see your U-verse Voice recent call history and click to return a call from your U-verse 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 South and West Regions Two Years in a Row,” according to the J.D. Power and Associates 2008 and 2009 Residential Television Service Provider Satisfaction StudiesSM. Plan and pricing details are available at www.att.com/tv or www.att.com/bundledeal.
