AT&T's U-verse App for iPad Offers Wi-Fi Streaming on the Go

AT&T released an updated iPad App for its U-verse customers with the following new features:

  • extra content and information about the TV show you're watching, including series overview, episode synopsis, photos, cast and crew information, related TV shows and more.

  • a full-featured, intuitive U-verse remote control with channel, guide, DVR, interactive app and on-demand controls, eliminating the need for extra (or lost) remotes throughout the home.

  • advanced search functionality to help you find the content you want.

  • recommendations on what to watch with ratings and reviews.

  • ability to share information about what you are watching with friends on Facebook.

  • the ability to watch hit TV shows and movies over any Wi-Fi connection while on the go. The library of popular content is based on the customer's U-verse TV package, including shows and movies from STARZ, ENCORE, TBS, TNT, truTV, Cartoon Network and Adult Swim, with more choices added on an ongoing basis.

  • the ability to access the U-verse programming guide and DVR scheduling on the go, similar to the functionality available on the U-verse app for iPhone and iPod touch.
