AT&T: U-verse TV nets 2 millionth customer

AT&T issued a statement this morning at the UBS 37th Annual Global Media and Communications Conference acknowledging that it expects to land its 2 millionth AT&T U-verse TV customer today. That means the telco will meet its long-anticipated goal of having 2 million IPTV subscribers by the end of this year, despite a general softening on the telco TV market this year. AT&T has added 1 million U-verse TV customers over the last year.

The statement comes just days after AT&T announced several year-ending special promotions designed to boost broadband, TV and service bundle sign-ups. The subscriber milestone was mentioned as part of a broader announcement in which AT&T launched a new Internet Max Turbo broadband offering with speeds of up to 24 Mbps downstream and up to 3 Mbps upstream. That service is available now in three markets: Austin, San Antonio and St. Louis.

In the announcement, AT&T also mentioned that U-verse TV gained 13 new applications during 2009, bringing the total number of U-verse TV apps to 21. The company also added more than 25 new high-definition channels and continued to improve its Total Home DVR offering.
