MGM and AT&T have signed a carriage deal placing MGM’s high-definition linear network, MGM HD, on the AT&T U-verse TV system, MGM announced Monday.
The network will be offered on U-verse’s HD Premium package, a new tier of the service that can be added to an HD subscription for an additional $5 a month.
The HD Premium package will contain MGM HD, Universal HD and Smithsonian HD. Currently, HD service is available on AT&T’s U-verse for $10 a month.
“AT&T U-verse TV represents the future of entertainment,” said Douglas A. Lee, executive VP of worldwide digital media for MGM.
“AT&T, as the only national provider to offer a 100% Internet protocol-based video service, delivers a level of service integration that allows consumers to watch their favorite MGM movies and TV series on-demand and in virtually any location with ease.”
With the carriage deal, MGM HD adds AT&T to the rest of its providers, including Comcast, Time Warner, DirecTV and Verizon FiOS.
