AT&T and DIRECTV Sign Three-Year Extension Agreement to Deliver AT&T | DIRECTV Service to AT&T Customers

 

3 November 2011

 

DIRECTV and AT&T* signed a three-year extension to their commercial agreement and will continue to offer a co-branded version of DIRECTV’s satellite television service across the 22 states where AT&T offers residential broadband and voice service. This agreement, which has been extended through March 2015, will enable both companies to provide millions of customers with access to an exclusive quadruple-play bundle of AT&T | DIRECTV service and AT&T broadband, home phone and wireless voice services, as well as bundled discounts when AT&T | DIRECTV service is combined with qualifying AT&T services.

 

Through a separate agreement, DIRECTV also sells AT&T broadband services, including AT&T U-verse High Speed Internet, through its sales distribution channels and to existing DIRECTV customers.

 

“Over the past three years DIRECTV and AT&T worked together to deliver a compelling bundled service at a great value,” said Paul Guyardo, executive vice president and CMO for DIRECTV. “With this new agreement, we have a lot in the works to expand our partnership.”

 

“We want all of our customers to have the option to receive a complete, integrated bundle of services from us, including TV,” said Jeff Weber, vice president of video services, AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets. “AT&T | DIRECTV service allows us to offer customers the best entertainment and communication services in areas where U-verse is not available, including compelling features that enhance their entertainment experience.”
