AT&T Expands Homezone -- Combining Satellite and Broadband Content

AT&T has expanded the availability of its "Homezone" service across its entire broadband footprint. AT&T Homezone integrates AT&T Yahoo! High Speed Internet, AT&T | DISH Network satellite television and AT&T Home Networking services via a single device.

AT&T Homezone is available to new AT&T | DISH Network residential customers who either already have or plan to order AT&T Yahoo! High Speed Internet and the 2Wire home networking gateway. Customers can select from several broadband speeds and satellite TV packages, then purchase Homezone service for an additional $9.99 a month.

AT&T said Homezone complements its "U-verse" IPTV service, which is available in San Antonio and will be launched in additional markets by year-end. While AT&T U-verse services will be the company's primary video offer in available markets.

The AT&T Homezone receiver can support up to two televisions at the same time with access to recorded programs, movies, photo and music collections from either TV. The second TV receives its signal through a home's existing coaxial cable wiring.

2Wire is the CPE provider for the AT&T Homezone receiver.
