AT&T Launches Homezone Set-top Box Print E-mail
Thursday, 20 July 2006
AT&T has officially launched its satellite set-top box, entitled Homezone. The box is capable of connecting to the Internet for movie downloading from Movielink. It also includes a DVR service for the recording of the satellite service. Recordings also can be made remotely through a Website. The current version of the set-top box displays only standard definition sources. However, AT&T plans to release a high definition version in the future. They also plan to integrate the Akimbo video on-demand service.

The Internet capability of the box allows for the sharing of photos and music stored remotely on a home computer that is also connected to the Internet.

Initially the boxes are only being released in Ohio and San Antonio, Texas. They are available to new subscribers of the AT&T and Dish Network joined satellite service. The cost of the box is $9.99 per month in addition to Internet and satellite service fees.

Homezone is an alternative for those not able to receive the U-Verse service from AT&T. U-Verse is AT&T’s new service to allow the transmission of video over phone lines.
