"We're always looking for unique and compelling content to deliver to U-verse customers across platforms, and Conan is no exception," said Dan York (News - Alert), president of content, AT&T.


York said that customers will be the first to see Conan in this comedic documentary and watch it on the device of their choice and that the company is excited to give its U-verse Facebook (News - Alert) fans extra access with exclusive documentary clips on their Facebook page and a chance to win a trip to LA to meet Conan.


“We're interested in partnering with other producers to bring more films and cross-platform content to AT&T customers in the future," York added.
