Qwest Kicks Football Season Into High Gear With New Web Site

DENVER, Sept. 19, 2006 - To help customers stay even more connected to the sport of football through its communications services, Qwest recently launched its own football-themed Web site. The new site - - and its interactive features put fans at the center of football action, whether they live for each and every football game, or just like to keep up with their favorite teams.

Until recently, video-making was a job for professionals with sophisticated equipment and paid actors. Now, with just a basic digital camera, even amateurs can create-and post for the world to view-personal videos.

So, Qwest created to bring it all together and let football fans indulge their passions for the sport.

On, fans can upload their own video clips and watch others' video clips, post comments and rant, rave and rehash each play of the season. Plus, fans can track their favorite teams, make weekly "Fan Picks" and even find the perfect recipes for their own football parties.

"Qwest's brings football fans together and gives them the chance to immerse themselves in the sport in a fan-friendly, easy way," said Laura Sankey, Qwest vice president of corporate marketing and advertising. "Customers tell us they want a fast, interactive connection to football, and Qwest's makes that possible."

The new Web site builds on the Qwest Football Bundles the company launched in August (,1281,1946_archive,00.html). The Qwest Football Bundles offer a combination of high-speed Internet service, digital voice and DIRECTV(r) service with 100 percent digital-quality television, plus the opportunity to add exclusive services and features, such as DIRECTV's subscription football packages and Qwest Wireless.
