Just 20 channels available for streaming when outside your home network, however
Building on the announcement earlier this month that it would be bringing live TV streaming to mobile devices, AT&T U-verse has just announced that Android users now have access to over 100 channels in its app. The service lets U-verse TV subscribers authenticate within its app on either a phone or tablet and have access to live TV along with On Demand programming and the ability to manage your DVR remotely.
There is a caveat, however. The quoted 100 live TV channels are only available when streaming on your home network, and the number of available channels dips to about 20 when you're out-and-about. We can likely blame this on media rights holders, but it still stinks to see such a pared-down offering out of the house where you're most likely to take advantage of such a service.
At any rate, U-verse customers can grab a download of the app from the Play Store at the link above, authenticate and get to catching up on TV even when someone in your house has monopolized use of the cable box. A full list of live channels can be found on U-verse's site, but include many of the popular networks such as A&E, Animal Planet, ESPN, Food Network, HBO, History, MTV, Syfy and many, many more.
