AT&T TV To Offer TotalVid Online Video

Under the deal, AT&T U-verse subscribers get access to the TotalVid library of hundreds of full-length special interest videos

AT&T has agreed to distribute through its Internet TV service, U-verse, TotalVid's online special-interest videos, which cover categories ranging from dance instruction and home improvement to martial arts and gambling. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Under the deal, AT&T U-verse subscribers get access to the TotalVid library of hundreds of full-length niche videos, which are available for download and playback on a PC. AT&T will be the first to offer TotalVid content for playback on the TV.

AT&T provides subscribers with the search capabilities to find content, which is categorized based on market and user trends.

"Through our IP (Internet protocol) platform, we plan to offer customers a wide selection of niche content," Richard Wellerstein, vice president of video on-demand programming at AT&T, said in a statement.

U-verse is relatively new to the market, available in only two U.S. cities. The service launched in San Antonio in June, and later in Houston. AT&T plans to make the service available in 13 more markets by the end of the year, but has yet to say where. A U-verse user group, however, reports the next launch city is scheduled to be in California, with San Diego, San Jose, Calif.; and parts of Los Angeles close to launch ready.
