AT&T announced it has hit the 100 HD channel mark, or exceeded it, in all markets where its U-verse TV service is available. New additions to the high-definition listings include ABC Family HD, Disney Channel HD, Disney XD HD, ESPNews HD and ESPNU HD.
“In this economy, consumers are turning to home entertainment to save money and get better value, and they should pick a provider that offers them more HD bang for their buck. That’s U-verse TV,” said Dan York, executive vice president of content and programming,
The company says it surpasses the number of high-definition channels offered by all cable service providers in the markets they share. One hundred seems to be the golden number, the number which has also been reached or surpassed by satellite TV providers DirecTV and Dish Network as well as competing fiber-optic TV provider Verizon.
HD service is included with the U450 programming package and available for $10 a month with any other U-verse TV programming package. U-verse HD customers can get the HD Premium package for an additional $5 a month.
