AT&T - More Marketing, No Fiber to the Home

Rick Romell:
Opening a new front in its battle with cable companies for the country's Internet, telephone and television customers, AT&T Inc. on Tuesday started selling Web-based TV service.

For $19.99 a month, the telecommunications firm is offering about 20 channels over the Internet, with the promise of more soon. The service is available to anyone with a high-speed, or broadband, Internet connection - wired or wireless.

The rollout is "an example of how we're trying to evolve into an entertainment company," said Sarah Silva, Milwaukee-area spokeswoman for AT&T.
