AT&T, Viacom sign on to TV Everywhere offering

AT&T (NYSE: T) and Viacom (NYSE: VIA) have announced that AT&T has added content from several Viacom channels to its U-verse TV online offering.

The expanded lineup includes full-length episodes of shows from BET, Comedy Central, MTV, Nickelodeon, Spike and VH1. The shows are available to AT&T U-verse customers who use their U-Verse IDs to log-in at any of the individual Viacom TV Everywhere programming sites for those channels (www.bet.com/tve, for example).

This is the first time AT&T and Viacom are teaming up on a TV Everywhere offering. The content also will be available on U-verse.com. Viacom announced a similar TV Everywhere programming partnership with Time Warner Cable (NYSE: TWC) last month, but the programming giant has been hesitant during the initial years of TV Everywhere's rollout to participate in the concept. The TWC offering followed a dispute in which the cable TV company offered Viacom content via a mobile app without consent from Viacom. The TWC offering last month was only for a non-mobile offering, though AT&T and Viacom said in today's announcement that mobile access to their offering would be forthcoming.
