AT&T is launching U-verse Screen Pack, a $5 monthly
subscription video-on-demand for watching unlimited movies on TV and other
devices, aiming to provide an alternative to Netflix, Redbox Instant by Verizon
and other over-the-top video services.

The telco also introduced two new U-verse TV apps, available
for no extra charge: PacketVideo's Twonky Beam for accessing personal videos on
TV, and Pix & Flix for viewing photos.

U-verse TV Screen Pack customers will get unlimited playback
of movies on U-verse TV, Uverse.com and on the U-verse app for tablets and
smartphones.

At launch, the AT&T U-verse Screen Pack will include
movies from major studios, with more titles added on an ongoing basis. The
telco did not provide examples of titles available through the service.
