AT&T is offering live streaming television direct to your smartphone or tablet, and even your Android or Apple Watch, through its U-Verse apps and offerings. While you do have to have an AT&T U-verse television package that includes home television (and includes giving you a DVR), there is no reason you have to use it at home or use the DVR, you can choose to access only the online streaming service.
The most basic package, called, appropriately enough, U-Basic, is purported to cost only $19.95 per month, for which you get local television stations, and access to the AT&T U-verse “extensive on-demand library”.
If you want all the bells and whistles and cable stations, the next package up is $65.00, but for that $65 you get an incredibly impressive lineup of streaming stations and channels, including, among many others:
Home & Garden Television (HGTV)
Home Shopping Network (HSN)
National Geographic Channel
The Weather Channel
And dozens more (you can see a complete station and channel lineup for all packages here).
Explains GW Shaw, vice president of U-verse and Video Products, AT&T Home Solutions, “Surpassing 200 live channels on our U-verse App for smartphones and tablets is an exciting milestone for all of us at AT&T U-verse, and it’s just one of the many ways we continue to meet our customer’s video needs. We’ll continue to add more content to give our customers the content they want, no matter where they are.”
The U-verse iPhone, iPad, and iPod apps require iOS 7 or higher.
The U-verse Android app requires Android version 2.2 or higher for phones, and 4.0.3 or higher for tablets.
