AT&T Adds More Second-Screen Features to U-verse9 Jul, 2012 By: Chris Tribbey
AT&T has expanded the features and video offerings included with its TV Everywhere U-verse application for Apple devices.
Subscribers can now access more content from HBO, Cinemax, Starz, Encore, MoviePlex, Fox News, Fox Business and Music Choice, and can link their iPads to a U-verse TV receiver to access sports content, scores, reviews and schedules.
The update also includes a social media companion, linking Facebook and Twitter. The update also turns iPods and iPod Touches into remote controls.
“The second-screen complements and enhances TV by letting viewers explore and have a deeper experience with the content they care about, on the device they use most,” said Jeff Weber, president of content and advertising sales for AT&T home solutions. “With our U-verse apps, you can pull up more info about shows, share about what you’re watching, and whether you're in or outside the home, you can access compelling content. And it's included as part of your U-verse TV packages.”
The application is available for free via the iTunes application store.
