Sacramento, California, March 6, 2008
More Sacramento-area 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 160,000 living units in and around the Sacramento area.
AT&T has continued to make U-verse TV available to more and more customers in the Sacramento area since introducing the service there in August 2007. U-verse TV is offered today in parts of 17 communities, including Sacramento County, Carmichael, Fair Oaks, Folsom, Gold River, Lincoln, Modesto, Rancho Cordova, Rocklin, Loomis, El Dorado Hills, Stockton, Fairfield, Vacaville, Mountain House, Tracy and Ceres. There are plans to continue reaching even more customers.
Sacramento customers also can 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.
"U-verse TV continues to get bigger and better, and we're happy that more Sacramento-area consumers can now enjoy this innovative new video choice," said Loretta Walker, AT&T vice president and general manager for the Sacramento area. "Delivering more choice, unmatched features and great value is what U-verse TV is all about, and that's what we're offering customers today."
