West Michigan: Newsmakers April 21, 2008




Grand Rapids Press:

Competition for cable and satellite TV providers arrives today in West Michigan. AT&T officially is introducing to West Michigan its U-verse package, which offers television, Internet and telephone services. Customers can get 200 channels, a digital video recorder, Internet service and unlimited calling for about $120 a month. Rates start at $44 a month for the television service alone. For West Michigan TV viewers, AT&T's system represents the region's first nondish-based, pay television alternative to Comcast and Charter Communications. Significant for many sports fans: U-verse service includes the Big Ten Network. Comcast does not carry the network because of a dispute with Big Ten over which customers should receive and pay for it. AT&T would not release a coverage map, citing competitive reasons, but the new service initially is available in Grand Rapids, Holland, Battle Creek and Kalamazoo...
