AT&T anticipates HDTV

AT&T said it planned to launch an HD version of its U-verse IPTV service in 15 markets by year’s end.

The telco gave an upbeat assessment for its IPTV service last week during a conference call with investors to discuss the company’s third quarter results, the “Financial Times” reported.

AT&T has been investing in a new fiber-optic network called Project Lightspeed in order to support the U-verse advanced video and data service and compete directly with cable TV operators such as Comcast and Time Warner.

Customer response to U-verse — launched in San Antonio in June — has been “very positive,” said Rick Lindner, AT&T’s chief financial officer.

AT&T plans to upgrade the 3000 subscribers in San Antonio to HDTV service in late November and expects to launch HDTV U-verse services in approximately 15 metropolitan markets across its traditional 13-state region by the end of 2006, Lindner said.
