More Central Texas Customers Gain Video Choice with AT&T U-verse TV
Austin, Texas, March 25, 2008
More Austin-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 150,000 living units in and around the Austin area.
Since introducing U-verse TV services in Austin in November 2007, AT&T has made the service available to more Central Texas customers on an ongoing basis. U-verse TV is offered today in parts of several communities, including Austin, Cedar Park, Leander, Pflugerville, Round Rock, Sunset Valley, and West Lake Hills. There are plans to continue reaching even more customers.
"U-verse TV is quickly expanding, and we're looking forward to bringing our innovative video choice to more Central Texas consumers in the months ahead," said Adrian Cardwell, Austin market manager for AT&T. "Since last November, we've really been able to show Austinites what U-verse TV is all about. We've launched new interactive features, expanded our HD channel lineup, and brought customers a better video choice."
Texas was the first state where AT&T U-verse services were deployed, thanks to progressive legislation passed in September 2005 by the Texas Legislature and signed by Gov. Rick Perry.
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, as part of its mission to connect people with their world, everywhere they live and work, and do it better than anyone else.
