Kids in (remote) control
AT&T to distribute kid-friendly Weemote remote controllers in N.E.
Children and their parents won't have to fight over the remote control anymore. AT&T Broadband and Fobis Technologies are teaming up to put TV remotes or "Weemotes" in the hands of young TV surfers. Fobis, maker of the Weemotes children's remote control, and AT&T Broadband's Northeast region will be offering free Weemotes to new customers of its cable TV service. New customers will also receive free installation of the service.
Consumers who call AT&T Broadband and sign up for at least the Total Basic package of broadband services will receive free installation and a free Weemote. The Weemote enables parents to program up to five channels on a brightly-colored remote control device that is easy and fun for children to use. Children can press the button for their favorite channel, or even "surf" only those channels that have been programmed into the Weemote.
