U-Verse TV getting short with new movie channel

AT&T Uverse is adding the mini-movie channel Shorts HD to its line-upGet ready for scores of underpants puns as AT&T Uverse adds the Shorts International channel to their lineup. They're calling their version ShortsHD and describing it as " a unique entertainment channel dedicated to short movies."

The world's first channel dedicated exclusively to shorts includes mini-films from around the world divided into different genre and theme collections. One of its more prominent shows, "Stars in Shorts" (See what I mean?), features major movie faces like Keira Knightley and Michael Cera appearing in original short-form productions.

There are actually some interesting titles in this ultimate short attention span line-up, including the Star Trek themed "Orion Slave Girls Must Die!" and the Disney examination, "Dream on Silly Dreamer."

ShortsHD broadcasts 24-hours a day in 30-60 minute blocks and is available on the AT&T U-verse TV part of the HD Premium tier for $5 a month.

The channel will also give movie fans a chance to watch the short form animated and live-action movies up for Oscars every year -- most of which go largely unseen by the viewing public (unless you count Pixar's efforts).

The channel's other programming blocks include "Editor's Pick," "Real Stories," "Comedy," "World Cinema," "Shorts In Love," "Midnight," "Film School" and "Best in Fest."
