Norfok, Va. — AT&T said it has reached an agreement with TotalVid.com to offer TotalVid’s online library of more than 2,600 entertainment and instructional video titles to AT&T Yahoo! High Speed Internet and AT&T Worldnet subscribers.
The agreement will feature a co-branded AT&T and TotalVid Web site — www.att.totalvid.com — and offers AT&T customers unlimited video downloads during a seven-day free trial.
AT&T customers will be offered a seven-day free trial of TotalVid's monthly subscription, which costs $9.95 a month and includes unlimited downloads. Alternatively, customers can download individual videos for fees starting at $1.99 per feature, with the ability to view them as often as they like over a seven-day viewing period. There are no late fees and nothing to return.
The companies will also market TotalVid's content on the AT&T Worldnet portal at www.att.net.
AT&T’s broadband users will have access to the complete library of titles, including full-length videos in categories including action sports, anime, cooking, fitness, home improvement, martial arts instruction, music, sports and travel.
“TotalVid offers our customers an exciting array of content that hasn't traditionally been available through television or retail video stores,” Scott Helbing, AT&T consumer chief marketing officer, stated. “We continue to look for ways in which we can deliver quality entertainment to AT&T customers faster and easier, and TotalVid is helping us achieve that goal.”
AT&T said the deal will help create new revenue streams from its DSL Internet customer base by “offering differentiated broadband-related services that consumers are increasingly demanding.”
