AT&T* and NBA Digital today announced the launch of NBA TV on AT&T U-verse TV, giving customers access to the NBA season through live games and original programming. NBA TV is available at no additional charge as part of the U-verse TV U300 package on channel 632 and part of the HD Technology fee on channel 1632.
NBA TV, the NBA’s 24-hour television network, offers up to 275 live games throughout the year, more than any other professional sports league television network, and signature studio shows featuring an Emmy Award-winning roster of announcers. The network is a fan’s all-access channel for everything basketball, delivering breaking news, scores, and original programming — in both standard definition and HD. As NBA TV tips off its 12th season, the network is now in approximately 55 million U.S. homes.
“We’re proud to bring NBA TV to U-verse TV customers. It’s a great addition to the U-verse TV channel lineup,” said Dan York, president of content, AT&T. “This deal helps us with important strategic content initiatives and gives our U-verse TV customers access to even more exciting sports content, and in stunning HD.”
“We’re excited that NBA TV has been added to the U-verse TV channel lineup and U-verse customers will now have access to hundreds of live games, original programming, and a marquee lineup of on-air talent to satisfy their desire for basketball action throughout the year,” said Bryan Perez, senior vice president and general manager, NBA Digital.
AT&T U-verse TV includes many features that enhance the game-watching experience for basketball fans. AT&T U-verse TV is the only 100 percent Internet Protocol-based television (IPTV) service offered by a national service provider, making AT&T U-verse one of the most dynamic and feature-rich services available today.

Power and Associates 2010 Residential Television Service Provider Satisfaction StudySM. For additional information on AT&T U-verse — or to find out if it’s available in your area — visit AT&T U-verse.
