SAN ANTONIO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 20, 2005--IP-based television will
change the way consumers watch TV while opening a new competitive
choice for millions, said Lea Ann Champion, senior executive vice
president of IP Operations and Services for SBC Communications
Inc. (NYSE:SBC) at a U.S. House Energy & Commerce Committee hearing
about the future of new technology.

Champion demonstrated the capabilities of IP-based video or IPTV for
lawmakers and urged them to avoid imposing incumbent obligations on
new entrants in the video services market that would discourage
deployment of the new system.
