Potentially in the future, yes. Right now we have a standard definition CRT TV. Why do you ask, is 6Mb DSL not sufficient for that in your experience?
I have gone ahead and ordered their fastest "Elite" DSL service, to try it out in parallel with the Suddenlink cable. If it doesn't seem good then I'll get rid of it.
I have to say, the connect.att.com website is completely baffling in its utter glacial slowness. It literally takes minutes to render a page sometimes. How on earth does AT&T think that this is going to attract new customers? It's an extremely frustrating experience, almost like they are trying to drive people away. I went in with my eyes open, however - unfortunately we have limited choices for internet and phone service, so you just have to grit your teeth and put up with the dysfunctional service on all fronts.

Doing much else besides browsing lite websites and checking email was slow. 10 Mbps (actual is like 8.5) recently became available so Netflix HD + other simultaneous activities is pretty nice. This is rural NC, so not sure if in a busier area service would be different (better infrastructure vs. more traffic). Uverse is the AT&T answer to Verizon FIOS, except that the fiber optics dont go all the way to your house, but just to your neighborhood.
