AT&T Touts Expanded HD Package


AT&T is offering access to more than 30 national HD channels through its Homezone service, now available across the telco’s 13-state broadband footprint.

Homezone integrates features of AT&T/Dish Network and AT&T Yahoo High Speed Internet and includes direct-broadcast satellite programming, on-demand content via strategic partnerships with Movielink and Akimbo and music and photos via TV screens and stereos. Also available: digital-video-recording technology and remote access through Web-enabled PCs or WAP-2.0-compatible wireless phones.

Through June, new subscribers to AT&T/Dish will receive free HD channels for the first year when ordering qualifying standard-definition and HD programming and packages.

After the first year, AT&T/Dish HD programming will run $20 per month. The monthly $9.99 fee for Homezone service and $5.98 for DVR functionality will remain the same.
