AT&T Launches "Free Access to HD Programming for a Year"

AT&T is offering HD programming at no cost for 12 months to qualifying new video customers within its traditional 22-state service area. New subscribers to AT&T U-verse TV service, where it is available, or to DIRECTV Service, and AT&T | DISH Network service (which is offered through Echostar) who mail in the required redemption forms, are eligible.

AT&T is offering more than 25 channels of HD programming through its AT&T U- verse TV service (where available) and up to 31 HD channels through AT&T satellite video broadcast services, DIRECTV Service and AT&T | DISH Network service. These HD lineups include premium movies, sports, news, home and gardening, food, family programming, classic films and pay-per-view channels.

The free access to HD programming offer, which is a value of up to $240, is one of the first consumer promotions to be featured across the AT&T 22- state footprint and is part of AT&T's efforts to deliver consumer benefits following the AT&T-BellSouth merger in December 2006.

The AT&T satellite video broadcast entertainment offer through AT&T | DISH Network is available now through May 31, 2007; through DIRECTV, the offer is available through June 26, 2007; and the AT&T U-verse TV offer is available now through June 30, 2007.
