AT&T U-verse Mobile App Expands to Make Mobile TV Viewing Easy on More Android, Windows Phone Devices

U-verse Mobile Now Offers U-verse TV Customers a Library of More Than 700 Shows On More Than 20 Devices AT&T* makes it possible for consumers to watch the hit TV shows they love, when and where they want with the AT&T U-verse Mobile app, and today AT&T U-verse® Mobile has expanded to several Android devices, including the LG Thrive, LG Phoenix and Samsung InfuseTM 4G, and the Windows Phone HTC HD7S™.

U-verse Mobile is now available on more than 20 devices and four major operating systems, and the U-verse Mobile library has grown to include more than 100 TV series and more than 700 TV shows from a variety of genres.

U-verse Mobile lets U-verse TV subscribers browse the U-verse TV program guide, schedule and manage their DVR recordings, and for subscribers with qualifying TV plans, watch hit TV shows on their qualifying smartphone. Mobile video viewing has become increasingly important to consumers. According to the Nielsen Cross-Platform Report, mobile viewing has increased 41 percent over the last year and more than 100 percent since 2009. In August 2010, AT&T was the first TV provider to offer an integrated mobile app that allows you to both manage your DVR and download and watch select shows. U-verse Mobile has continued to expand to more devices and to offer more television shows.

“As you’re heading out for your summer road trip or vacation, U-verse Mobile is a great app to keep the family entertained, and at no extra cost,” said Jeff Weber, vice president of video services, AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets. “Our U-verse TV customers can get popular shows on our most popular smartphones and watch from anywhere, and we’ll continue to expand the choices and availability.”

AT&T continues to expand TV watching to the devices that matter most to you, with hit TV shows available on U-verse TV, U-verse Online, U-verse TV on Xbox 360, and U-verse Mobile. U-verse Mobile lets U-verse TV customers schedule and manage DVR recordings at no extra cost. The ability to download or stream and watch TV shows is available at no extra charge for customers that subscribe to the U200 package or higher.

U-verse TV customers with Android devices can find the app on Android MarketTM and U-verse Mobile is preloaded on AT&T Windows Phone devices. U-verse TV customers can also watch TV shows, schedule DVR recordings and see which of their recorded shows are also available to watch online with U-verse Online. Any online user can watch more than 160,000 titles of TV shows, movies and video clips on your PC from the entertainment website.

AT&T U-verse TV is the only 100 percent Internet Protocol-based television (IPTV) service offered by a national service provider, making AT&T U-verse one of the most dynamic and feature-rich services available today. Now AT&T U-verse TV ranks “Highest in Residential Television Service Satisfaction in the North Central, South and West Regions,” according to the J.D. Power and Associates 2010 Residential Television Service Provider Satisfaction StudySM.

AT&T are big bullies... they only allow you to gain access to this mobile app if you have an AT&T phone even if you are a loyal paying U-verse customer. I think this is just wrong and bad business but all the more reason that I'll never own an AT&T mobile device.

jimbo says:

I agree. And ATT and their Uverse sales associates are also either unclear or misinformed about not having viewing capability on non ATT carriers. In the Southern California region from LA to San Diego, ATT service has been and still is extremely poor.

Why use ATT when one consistently drops calls with their service?
In Southern California Sprint and Verizon provide excellent service coverage and Sprint offers the best price by a wide margin. And as an added bonus Sprint has the best smartphones available; their HTC line up.

To be able to view TV show on other carrierss, Slingbox seems to be the only solution.

Because their stuff works better overseas...

aapold says:

ummm... my infuse had a a u-verse app preinstalled, and I got it in early June if memory serves...

Also, they charge an extra $9.99 per month for this. I think it is just a refresh of AT&T's old MobiTV service, using some of their line-up.

The bad part is I used to have a U-verse app during the brief time I had a Samsung Focus on WP7. It let me schedule stuff to record to my U-Verse DVR and watch from a limited library... but all I really wanted was the scheduler. You can't access those features in this app without signing up for this $9.99 monthly fee, which I find ridiculous.

There is a separate U-verse Mobile app that lets you do this. I pretty much only use that. I checked the download link to see if this was some new u-verse app that would do this without a monthly fee but no, it is the same one I already had.

My EVO has a Uverse app that I download and watch the shows through... oh hacks how I love you

iknownothing says:

Please tell me where I may obtain this application. My current one will only allow me to schedule recordings.

lwesker says:

I see some posts are slinging mud. This is directly downloaded from Market on a Sprint EVO 4G and does not incur extra charges.

While never really useful for me, it has always worked and I can see its value for on-the-go TV series junkies that can't wait until they get home to watch TV from the DVR.

However after this latest update, I had to uninstall. It takes 14 MB of phone memory and has no install to SD capability. Too damn fat.

U-verse has been doing a good job in getting this app up and running, but I think with 700 titles chances are pretty good that your favorite show won't be on there, but you never know, and also I think U-verse is one of the only providers that made a tech support app for mobile devices, which could be good or bad. I am still stuck on my sling adapter with my 7wwk receiver. It let's me stream all my live subscribed channels and recorded shows to my Infuse wherever I am. The hour long bus ride home from work at DISH would be boring without it I can tell you that much, and it let's me catch up on what I want to watch, not what I am given to watch.
