AT&T Turns on Internet TV Service


AT&T, the largest telecom in the U.S. has announced the launch of AT&T Broadband TV, a television broadband service created in a partnership with mobile TV provider MobiTV.

Broadband TV is a browser-based service that will enable users to view live TV on their home computers and on wireless broadband devices. The service will launch with 20 channels including Fox News, Bloomberg, the History Channel, Comedy Time, and the Weather Channel. AT&T plans to eventually add more channels. The service is available to consumers through a monthly fee of $19.99.

“The AT&T Broadband TV service offers our customers the ability to watch live television programming beyond the TV screen, increasing our capabilities to provide compelling content to consumers who are seeking information and entertainment when, where and on the device they desire,” said Scott Helbing, EVP of ATT entertainment services in a statement. “The deal helps further enhance AT&T’s broadband service and three-screen initiative by offering differentiated broadband-enabled content that consumers are increasingly demanding.”

AT&T Broadband TV requires Internet Explorer. The telecom giant will promote the service through the broadband portal, and it is also offering a free 14-day trial through MobiTV.
