AT&T U-verse TV Carries WGN, Tribune Stations


AT&T inked a deal with Tribune to deliver Superstation WGN and Tribune’s TV stations in local markets served by U-verse TV.

Terms of the agreement were not disclosed. All U-verse TV customers will have access to Superstation WGN, including Chicago Cubs and White Sox Major League Baseball and Chicago Bulls National Basketball Association games.

AT&T has offered WGN in various markets since last fall.

The carriage deal covers Tribune stations in markets where AT&T currently offers -- or plans to offer -- U-verse TV. Stations in markets currently served by U-verse include (with their network affiliations): WPIX (New York/The CW), KTLA (Los Angeles/CW), KDAF (Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas/CW), KHCW (Houston/CW), WXIN (Indianapolis/Fox), WTTV/WTTK (Indianapolis/CW), KSWB (San Diego/CW), WTIC (Hartford, Conn./Fox) and WTXX (Hartford/CW).

Last week AT&T said it had 51,000 U-verse TV subscribers as of June 30, up from 13,000 three months earlier. U-verse TV is available in parts of 23 markets.
