Columbus, Ohio, January 11, 2008

Customers in Columbus now have even more reasons to choose AT&T U-verseSM TV. AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) today announced that Columbus customers now have access to a suite of new U-verse TV features that further differentiate the service from cable.

The new interactive features — available to customers at no extra charge — include:

  • AT&T U-bar, which brings customizable weather, stock, sports and traffic information to the TV screen. Customers who also subscribe to AT&T Yahoo!

  • YELLOWPAGES.COM TV, an intuitive new way to search for local businesses and other information via AT&T U-verse TV.
  • AT&T Yahoo! Games, available on the television screen, including Sudoku, Solitaire, JT's Blocks, Mah-jongg Tiles and Chess.
  • "U-verse has been in Columbus for less than a month, and we're already enhancing our service to deliver new and innovative features to Columbus-area customers," said Steve Mitchell, AT&T vice president and general manager for Ohio. "These features are a great example of how we'll continue to grow and expand U-verse in Columbus while also delivering the content our customers want — such as Big Ten Network."

    AT&T is the only national provider to offer a 100 percent Internet Protocol-based television (IPTV) service, making AT&T U-verse TV one of the most advanced television offerings available anywhere. AT&T U-verse has been recognized as the 2007 Best Business Strategy by industry analyst firm Stratecast.
