AT&T Offers Its Largest Monthly Bundle Discount to AT&T Wireless Customers That Add U-verse TV

April 18, 2011

DALLAS, April 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — With AT&T U-verse®, you can watch TV shows on multiple screens, program your DVR from your mobile phone or tablet, or view your home phone voicemails on your mobile phone — and now customers have yet another reason to combine their services with AT&T.

AT&T* today announced an exclusive AT&T U-verse offer for AT&T wireless customers that sign up for U-verse services. Any existing AT&T wireless customer that adds a qualifying U-verse TV and Internet bundle will receive a $45 monthly discount for six months — covering the cost of U-verse Internet Max (with downstream speeds up to 12 Mbps) and giving customers a total of $270 in savings, the largest monthly bundle discount available from AT&T.

The new offer builds on the success of the AT&T Choice bundles launched last year, which give consumers significant savings for bundling various combinations of AT&T U-verse TV, U-verse High Speed Internet, U-verse Voice and wireless voice services — a bundle option not available from most cable providers.

“We value our existing wireless customers and are thanking them with our best monthly discount for adding U-verse TV,” said Joey Schultz, vice president of consumer marketing, AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets. “Consumers like to buy bundles to save money, and we know that customers who have U-verse and wireless services today have greater satisfaction because their services work together in new and meaningful ways. We’re launching this offer because U-verse is a better TV experience that our wireless customers shouldn’t miss out on.”

AT&T U-verse bundles give customers innovative multi-screen apps and services that bring their TV, online, home phone and wireless services together. For example:

  • U-verse Mobile lets customers manage their Total Home DVR recordings, as well as watch hit TV shows on qualifying smartphones.
  • You can watch hit TV shows across multiple screens with U-verse TV, U-verse Online, U-verse TV on Xbox 360 and U-verse Mobile.
  • You can set your Total Home DVR recordings, personalize your U-verse TV AT&T U-bar feature, watch exclusive content and more from U-verse Online.
  • On the YP.COM TV app, customers can search for local business information on their U-verse TV screen and send the call to their home or wireless phone with the click of their remote.
  • You can easily check and manage your U-verse Voice home phone messages with the Visual Voicemail app on your smartphone.
  • With U-verse Voice and U-verse TV, you can view your Call History on your TV and click to initiate a call with one click from your PC or U-verse TV.

AT&T continues to introduce better bundle options that combine U-verse and wireless services in ways that provide more integration and value to customers. For example, new U-verse customers can subscribe to a triple-play for $89 per month for 12 months, with one-year term, by choosing U-verse TV U-family with Total Home DVR; U-verse High Speed Internet Pro (up to 3 Mbps downstream); and your choice of AT&T Nation 450 wireless voice with unlimited messaging or 250 minutes of digital home phone calling with U-verse Voice 250 — providing a savings of up to $300 for one year.

Consumers are responding to the flexibility and value that AT&T bundles offer. AT&T U-verse is the fastest growing TV service in the country, with more TV subscribers added than any of the major TV providers reported in 2009 and 2010. More than three-fourths of AT&T U-verse TV subscribers have a triple- or quad-play bundle from AT&T, and more than 90 percent of U-verse TV subscribers bundle U-verse Internet.

AT&T U-verse TV is the only 100 percent Internet Protocol-based television (IPTV) service offered by a national service provider, making AT&T U-verse one of the most dynamic and feature-rich services available today. Now AT&T U-verse TV ranks “Highest in Customer Satisfaction in the North Central, South and West Regions,” according to the J.D. Power and Associates 2010 Residential Television Service Provider Satisfaction Studies(SM).
