AT&T U-verse TV Introduces Weather On Demand
New service in Sacramento Area provides local and national on-demand forecasts
Sacramento, California.- AT&T U-verseSM TV customers in the Sacramento area now have a brighter TV forecast. AT&T California today announced the launch of Weather On Demand in the Sacramento area, an interactive feature powered by AccuWeather.com® that allows U-verse TV customers to find the weather information they want, in the city they want, at the time they want — all at the touch of a button. Sacramento area U-verse TV customers can now enjoy the feature at no extra charge.
“Weather On Demand is just another great example of how we continue to deliver innovative and beneficial features to our customers using our Internet Protocol (IP) platform,” said Kathy McKim, AT&T’s vice president of external affairs in the Sacramento area. “We’re making it easy for customers to check weather conditions and forecasts in their hometown or across the country, whenever they want. Not only is this feature available at no extra charge, it will be a great resource for our U-verse TV customers who want up-to-date and accurate weather information.”
Customers can access AccuWeather.com information for their home city and any other U.S. city they specify on their “My Cities” list by tuning to Channel 227. Customers can then:
* View weather information for cities throughout the country that they select.
* View current local conditions, including high/low temperatures, humidity, wind, visibility and barometric pressure.
* Get local and nationwide forecasts, including hourly and six-day outlooks.
* Access animated local and national radar imagery and satellite views.
* Watch current videos of meteorologists presenting the local weather updates.
* Search and select cities by name, ZIP code or by looking at a U.S. map.
Weather On Demand is the latest addition to the constantly evolving suite of features that has been introduced to all U-verse TV customers since the AT&T U-verse launch in June 2006. At no extra charge, U-verse TV customers can also enjoy several other integrated features, including Total Home DVR; the ability to program DVR recordings from your mobile phone or any Web-connected PC; personalized, on-screen weather, sports, traffic and stock information via AT&T U-bar; the ability to view personal photos on your TV that you have uploaded to flickr.com; and more.
The deployment of AT&T U-verse is rapidly introducing competitive choice and next-generation services to more consumers.
