AT&T's IPTV service growing

AT&T announced Wednesday that 18,000 customers have signed up for its U-verse video service since its launch in January.

The company says it is now performing about 2,000 installations per week.

U-verse TV is an Internet Protocol-based television service intended as an alternative to standard cable. Thus far, U-verse is available to customers in a limited number of urban markets, with service planned for Los Angeles next. During its quarterly earnings call in January, AT&T CEO Ed Whitacre said the company hopes to reach 8 million homes by year's end.

Last month, U-verse began offering service for PCs, including some live programming.
