AT&T U-verse Extends MobiTV Programming to Customer PCs

AT&T announced the availability of AT&T U-verse OnTheGo, a new premium service that will allow its U-verse customers to view live television on a PC using any broadband Internet connection.

AT&T U-verse OnTheGo is delivered under an existing agreement between AT&T and MobiTV.

AT&T U-verse OnTheGo subscribers can access nearly 30 channels, several of which feature live programming -- including The Weather Channel and Bloomberg Television, among others. In the future, AT&T U-verse OnTheGo will also feature U-verse content such as movie trailers for Video-on-Demand (VOD) content, and AT&T plans to add more channels and content.

The service is available for $10 a month.

AT&T said OnTheGo will eventually be available using an AT&T wireless device, such as a mobile phone.
