AT&T Inc. has announced agreements with Circuit City and Wal-Mart to sell AT&T U-verseSM TV and AT&T U-verse High Speed Internet in more than 600 retail locations beginning this month.  The agreements are the first national retail deals for AT&T U-verse, creating a powerful new distribution channel and providing consumers with another convenient way to learn more about U-verse services, check availability and place an order.

"We've been expanding U-verse availability at a rapid pace, and now we're expanding the way millions of consumers can learn about the benefits of AT&T U-verse and order the service," said Glenn Lurie, president, National Distribution, AT&T. "We're excited to add AT&T U-verse to the list of must-have items that consumers can get from these leading retailers. Our services are the perfect fit to accompany and enhance customers' purchases."

AT&T U-verse TV and AT&T U-verse High Speed Internet will be offered at Circuit City and Wal-Mart stores located near neighborhoods where U-verse services are available in Arkansas, California, Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, Ohio, Oklahoma, Texas and Wisconsin. Additional locations will be added in the future.

Customers will be able to learn more about AT&T U-verse TV and AT&T U-verse High Speed Internet at in-store kiosks and from sales associates. In addition to AT&T U-verse services, the full bundle of AT&T services — including AT&T High Speed Internet and home phone service — are already offered at these locations, so shoppers can take care of all their entertainment and communications needs.

These national retail agreements support AT&T's aggressive U-verse deployment and customer growth. AT&T is the only national service provider to offer a 100 percent IP-based television (IPTV) service, making AT&T U-verse TV one of the most dynamic and feature-rich services available today. AT&T expects to have more than 1 million U-verse TV customers in service by the end of 2008 and plans to pass more than 30 million living units with its fiber-rich network by the end of 2010.
