U-verse Inks Fox News Pact


Fox News Channel was added to AT&T’s U-verse programming lineup under terms of a carriage deal announced Monday.

AT&T currently has 3,000 U-verse TV subscribers in its initial San Antonio market. The telco said it expects to roll out the service to 15 markets, with HD programming available in each, by the end of 2006.

“Fox News is a very popular cable news source, and its programming is a valuable addition to our robust U-verse channel lineup," AT&T Operations head of programming Dan York said in a prepared statement.
