AT&T's U-verse Mobile App Extends Some Live TV for Tablets/Mobiles

AT&T launched more than 100 live channels on its U-verse App for smartphone and tablets.

However, due to restricted broadcast rights, the mobile app, which is available only for customers of the residential AT&T U-verse TV service, currently allows about 20 of the channels to be watched outside the home.

 AT&T said it will be adding more live channels and expanding the live channels to more devices on an ongoing basis.

"By making live TV content available across devices we're enabling our customers to watch TV on their terms when and where they want it," said Mel Coker, Chief Marketing Officer, AT&T Home Solutions. "U-verse has always been about delivering a TV experience built around our customers, and this enhancement gives them even more flexibility and control."

In addition to live channels, the U-verse App also offers remote control features, a channel guide, thousands of on-demand shows, extra content about the programming, and advanced search.
