AT&T and DirecTV, MB Docket 14-90

AT&T Inc. (“AT&T”) and DirecTV have filed applications seeking Commission approval to transfer of control of the licenses and authorizations held by DirecTV and its wholly-owned and controlled subsidiaries to AT&T. As part of the transaction, AT&T plans to divest its interest in América Móvil, a telecommunications company headquartered in Mexico. AT&T provides wireless, Internet, television and local and long distance voice services in the United States. AT&T’s wireline footprint covers portions of 22 states and AT&T has begun to expand its U-verse video and broadband services to reach approximately 75% of the customer locations in that footprint. AT&T currently provides some form of U-verse services to approximately 11.3 million households. DirecTV is a provider of direct broadcast satellite (“DBS”) services, also known as Direct-to-Home satellite television services. It has approximately 20 million video subscribers in the United States and interests in entities with approximately 18 million video subscribers in Latin America. DirecTV does not offer broadband or voice services of its own but does offer synthetic service bundles of video, voice and broadband services in conjunction with CenturyLink, AT&T and Verizon, among others.
