AT&T Launches AT&T Entertainment Website Featuring Online TV Content and Movies
New Online Experience Delivers Content from Top Content Providers, TV Networks and Hollywood Studios
Dallas, Texas, September 10, 2009
AT&T* today announced the launch of AT&T Entertainment, a new Web site that lets you watch thousands of streaming TV shows and movies on your PC. The online content — provided by numerous content providers including ABC and NBC Universal (via an agreement with Hulu), CBS Interactive and dozens more — is available to all consumers at www.entertainment.att.net.
By delivering video entertainment to your PC, the new site is part of AT&T’s strategy to make popular content available to consumers across the three screens at the center of their lives — the TV, PC and wireless phone. AT&T plans to add more TV programs and movies from other leading providers in the coming months.
“We know our customers want to be able to access their favorite content anytime, anywhere,” said Dan York, executive vice president of content and programming, AT&T. “AT&T Entertainment provides the one-stop destination to watch your favorite TV shows and movies on your PC, wherever you have a broadband connection. The site will grow and evolve to make more content available to consumers in new and better ways.”
At AT&T Entertainment, fans can view thousands of TV shows after their initial network airing and movies from a variety of networks and studios, including ABC, Bravo, CBS Entertainment, CBS News, CNBC, NBC, Oxygen, Syfy, The CW, USA Network and more. Consumers can easily find content by browsing TV shows and movies alphabetically, by genre, or by network or studio. The site is open to any user; you do not have to be an AT&T customer to enjoy watching shows on the site.
AT&T U-verseSM TV and Internet customers who visit AT&T Entertainment can sign in to access U-verse Web Remote Access, a popular application that allows customers to schedule and manage DVR recordings directly from their PC. U-verse Web Remote Access has been available through the att.net portal since 2006.
AT&T Entertainment is the latest example of AT&T delivering compelling cross-platform content. AT&T has a unique set of integrated services and networks that make it easy for an audience of millions to enjoy and follow their favorite programming whenever and wherever they choose.
