U-verse Hits 100-Plus HDs Channels In All TV Markets

AT&T now offers 100 HD channels to U-verse TV subscribers nationwide, a triple-digit mark that the telco claims tops the HD channel lineups offered by the local cable providers in every U-verse TV market.

With recent expansions to the U-verse TV HD lineup, customers can now enjoy ABC Family HD, Disney Channel HD, Disney XD HD, ESPNews HD and ESPNU HD as part of their existing HD service subscription, depending on their programming package. With the additions, U-verse TV offers 100 or more HD channels in every U-verse TV market.

Both DirecTV and Dish Network offer more than 100 HD channels, as does Verizon Communications through its FiOS TV service.

Only a few cable operators have hit the mark, including Time Warner Cable in New York City, where it's attempting to fend off FiOS.

AT&T U-verse TV has two HD subscription options. HD service is included with the U450 programming package and available for $10 a month with any other U-verse TV programming package. The telco charges an additional $5 a month for four HD channels: MGM HD, Palladia HD, Smithsonian Channel HD and Universal HD.
