ATT Targeting 40K New Subscribers/Week by End 2008

ATT stated that it expects to be adding 40 thousand new U-verse IPTV subscribers per week by the end of 2008, up from 12 thousand per week today. Currently, 60 percent of its IPTV subscribers came from cable services. The company stated that its key features include:
  • More HD than cable in most markets
  • Ability to record 4 programs at one time
  • Web and mobile remote access
  • Built in picture in picture
  • Search
  • 10 Mbps Internet
ATT plans to add the following features in 2008:
  • Photo and media service in 1H08
  • 2 HD streams in 2Q or 3Q08
  • Whole home DVR in 2H08 that will support 7 streams - 2 live SD, 2 live HD, and 2 HD and 1SD on the DVR
  • VoIP expansion
  • Pair bonding for higher speeds in 4Q08
ATT appears to have gotten over its growing pains and is now rolling the service out at a significant rate. There is even hope that I can get it. I saw them installing fiber in the sewer down the street a couple of weeks ago.
