AT&T U-verse to Trial 2 High-Def Streams

Tom Nolle Tom Nolle Profile: Tom Nolle

AT&T is about to begin a trial roll-out of a U-verse service that could deliver two HD streams at once, something that hasn’t worked up to now. There are several ways in which AT&T is looking at this, one through increasingly aggressive compression and the other through upspeeding the loop. It is possible both will be tried. There is no indication of when the capability will be fully rolled out, but AT&T appears committed to it. They have to be; this would be a crippling problem for U-verse if it continued much into 2009. We believe AT&T has major problems with its TV strategy, this change notwithstanding, and that they will eventually be forced to move to another approach.
