AT&T will let U-verse TV customers access up to four
high-definition channels simultaneously by the end of the year, thanks
to a combination of DSL upgrades and improvements in MPEG-4 compression.
now, AT&T has allowed customers of the IPTV service to access a
maximum of three HD channels at once, because of bandwidth constraints.
Stankey, president and CEO of the AT&T Operations division, made
the announcement at the Bank of America Merrill Lynch Media,
Communications & Entertainment investor conference Thursday.
