ATT Has 100.000 IPTV Subscribers

ATT announced that it had installed its 100 thousandth U-verse IPTV subscriber. This up 49 thousand subscribers from the 51 thousand that it had at the end of June 2007.

To celebrate this milestone, AT&T will provide the Pierson family of Los Angeles T a Tatung 42-inch LCD HDTV, Toshiba HD DVD player, Hewlett-Packard notebook personal computer, Blackberry Curve, a portable DVD player courtesy of Showtime Networks, an AT&T cordless phone and a prize pack that features HBO Sports apparel and original series DVDs, a Discovery Channel Planet Earth HD DVD box set, a NBC Universal movie gift pack, as well as DVDs from Showtime Networks, Lionsgate and Starz Entertainment. The family will also receive 12 months of the AT&T U-verse TV U400 package and AT&T Yahoo! High Speed Internet Pro at no charge.

The company is continuing to hold to its prediction that it will be adding 10 thousand new subscribers per week by the end of 2007.

Wow, at the rate they are going, maybe I have a shot at the 1 million subscriber prize!

Seriously, its average over the last 9 weeks has been to add 1,100 new subscribers per week. This is up from adding about 600 new subscribers per week in 2Q07. This is still a l0ng way from 10,000 per week. ATT has about 16 or 17 more weeks to get to that level. That will be a good trick if they do it.
