AT&T U-verse Packages
AT&T U-verse offers over 105 HD TV channels, a number that is constantly growing via fiber optic cable which places it in direct competition with satellite operators offering HD television. High definition television is gaining widespread popularity due to the depth of color and crystal clarity of the image, yet many cable operators are lagging behind by still offering analog channels in their basic packages, while access to digital channels is available but at an additional fee. Access to HD channels is also at an additional fee, which makes it more cost-effective to opt for a company that has moved out of the analog world and fully into digital and HD, such as the AT&T U-verse packages which rival satellite competitors like Direct TV.
