More Kansas City Customers Gain Video Choice, Innovative Features with AT&T U-verse TV
U-verse TV and Suite of New Interactive Features Now Available to More Than 130,000 Living Units
Kansas City, Missouri, February 4, 2008
More Kansas City residents and their televisions can break free from cable. AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) today announced that AT&T U-verseSM TV and Internet services are now available to more than 130,000 living units in the Kansas City area.
Since introducing U-verse TV services in the Kansas City area in March 2007, AT&T has made the service available to more customers on an ongoing basis, and plans to continue expanding on both sides of the state line.
In addition, Kansas City area-customers can now enjoy a suite of new U-verse TV features — currently available for all local U-verse TV customers at no extra charge — that further differentiate the service from cable, including:
- AT&T U-bar, which brings customizable weather, stock, sports and traffic information to the U-verse TV screen, without interrupting the current program. Customers who also subscribe to AT&T Yahoo! High Speed Internet can personalize the U-bar from their AT&T Yahoo! home page to display weather at specific locations, their personal stock portfolio and scores for their favorite sports teams.
- YELLOWPAGES.COM TV, which lets U-verse TV customers easily search for local businesses and other information via their TV screen.
- AT&T Yahoo! Games, so U-verse TV customers can now play their favorite online games — including Sudoku, Solitaire, JT's Blocks, Mah-jongg Tiles and Chess — on the TV screen.
"More Kansas City customers can pick up the phone or go online and order U-verse TV today, and why wouldn't they?" said Mark Thompson, AT&T vice president and general manager for Kansas. "With innovative features and access to more HD channels than cable — all for a great value — we're sure that Kansas City customers will agree that U-verse TV is cooler than cable."
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 is deploying next-generation video services, including AT&T U-verse TV, to connect people with their world, everywhere they live and work, and do it better than anyone else.
