AT&T U-verse subscribers are now provided with another outlet for being entertained. Customers can now watch television from their iPhones, using the new U-verse Mobile app (free in the App Store). But, be forewarned: the service is only available using Wi-Fi.The U-verse Mobile app replaces the Mobile Remote Access for iPhone app, and incorporates the ability to browse the U-verse TV program guide. Plus, users can view program descriptions, as well as schedule and manage DVR recordings. The coolest feature: television shows can be downloaded and then viewed later. This is perfect for those that want to download programming at home (via Wi-Fi) and then watch the shows on the run later.
"Cannot justify paying AT&T any more money for something that should be included at the U100/U200 level."Of course, the company has its supporters. One indicated that users should:
"Upgrade to U300 and quit whining."Currently boasting two million U-verse customers, AT&T has beaten Dish Network out of the gate in offering these mobile services. It is now the only TV provider offering an integrated mobile app that allows you to both manage your DVR as well as download and watch select shows. AT&T U-verse is currently available in 22 states, mainly in the South and Midwest. The new service is being offered at no additional cost. Customers can download the U-verse Mobile app today in the App Store.
