AT&T makes another media play

Posted May 16th, 2016 in AT&T, media and tagged , , by Alton Drew

AT&T today announced that it will acquire Quickplay Media Inc., as part of its plan to support streaming of DirecTV content over any device. AT&T already has an existing relationship with Quickplay. The company provides the platform for AT&T U-verse TV. Subject to a pre-merger review, the acquisition is expected to close in mid 2016.

The acquisition provides another example of convergence 2.0 as legacy companies such as AT&T and Verizon take their infrastructure to a media level.
