AT&T on Monday introduced its first mobile "TV Everywhere"
service, with the debut of an iPhone app that lets U-verse TV
subscribers download and watch full TV episodes, initially from 52 TV
shows through content-licensing deals with Disney-ABC Television Group,
Discovery Communications and PBS.
Via a Wi-Fi connection, the U-verse Mobile 2.0 app gives
U-verse subscribers the ability to download recent episodes of TV shows
from networks including ABC, ABC Family, Animal Planet, Discovery
Channel, Disney Channel, Disney XD, ESPN, PBS Kids and TLC. The "TV
Everywhere" features are available only to customers with a U-verse TV
U300 programming package or higher.
app also incorporates the ability to browse the U-verse TV program
guide, view program descriptions, and schedule and manage DVR
recordings. It replaces AT&T's Mobile Remote Access for iPhone,
which the telco claims is used by more than 100,000 U-verse TV customers
