AT&T Adds HD Programming to U-verse in San Antonio

AT&T has added High Definition (HD) programming and other new features to its U-verse service currently available in San Antonio, Texas. The lineup includes more than 25 HD channels, which is more than the local cable providers. New HD customers can receive two months of free HD programming ($10 per month thereafter).

Other new capabilities include:

  • Web-remote access to digital video recorder (DVR), which allows customers to schedule recordings using their AT&T Yahoo! Internet account.

  • The ability to record up to four programs at once using a DVR receiver.

  • An expanded lineup of available programming with more than 300 channels, including digital music, local, and premium movie and sports programming.

  • New set top boxes, manufactured by Motorola, all of which are HD-capable and include specially-designed universal remote controls that provide backlit buttons and one-touch access to VOD, DVR, and other services.
