ABSTRACT
The article reports on the failure of AT&T Corp. to offer its U-verse TV in 15 markets in the U.S. by the end of 2006. The company blamed in part the slowdown on enhancing the Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) software provided by Microsoft Corp. When asked why it missed the 15 market goal, AT&T answered that it revised the number of markets to enhance its IPTV software and other systems. The company will only hit 11 markets by the end of 2006.
