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.-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.
