AT&T's U-verse licensing deals: MTV, BET, TV One

AT&T closed a whole slew of content licensing deals for its U-verse network, which is currently launched in San Antonio, but won't be available across AT&T 13-state service area until sometime in 2008. MTV Networks and BET just announced their partnership with AT&T for U-verse today, and the new entertainment and lifestyle television network for African-American adults, TV One, signed on very recently too.
