AT&T Oct. 7 launched an app that offers more than 100 live TV channels enabling authenticated subscribers access to programming on tablets and mobile phones.
The new channels are available to U-verse TV customers as part of their U-family or higher U-verse TV package. Channels include AMC, A&E, Bravo, HBO, HGTV, Showtime, Starz, Syfy, Nickelodeon and USA Network, among others.
The U-verse app also offers users on-demand TV shows and movies, in addition to content and information about the TV show you're watching, including episode synopsis, photos, cast and crew information, and related TV shows.
In addition, the app offers a full-featured U-verse remote control with channel guide, remote access to the DVR and search functions.
“By making live TV content available across devices we’re enabling our customers to watch TV on their terms, when and where they want it,” said Mel Coker, chief marketing officer with AT&T Home Solutions. “U-verse has always been about delivering a TV experience built around our customers, and this enhancement gives them even more flexibility and control.”
