Ericsson’s TV technology role at AT&T cleared up a bit Thursday when the vendor announced it had been selected to “enhance” the telco’s TV platform and work with AT&T to evolve its satellite and wireline TV platform.

The announcement comes less than two month after AT&T clinched its acquisition of DirecTV.

AT&T already uses Ericsson Mediaroom to power its U-verse TV platform (Ericsson acquired the Mediaroom IPTV platform Microsoft in 2013). Last month, AT&T announced (subscription required) that it would use a derivative of DirecTV’s gateway-client architecture to establish a more uniform, cloud-based video platform for the combined company.
