TelcoTV tidbits

Here's a brief follow up on notes from TelcoTV 2008's opening day keynotes:

- AT&T has completed its rollout of its Total Home DVR solution, according to Dan York, executive vice president of content at AT&T. York added, "With U-verse, you can record up to four programs at once. No one else is doing that." York also said that U-verse now passes 14 million "living units" and is still on track to reach 30 million by the end of 2010.

- John Harrobin, senior vice president of marketing and digital media at Verizon Communications talked quite a bit in his keynote speech about on-screen widgets, and he let slip that Verizon currently had a Facebook widget in its lab that will allow TV viewers quick on-screen access to all of their Facebook functions.
