AT&T U-verse Mobile App Comes To Windows Phone 7

Windows Phone 7 just launched in America this month, and already the app store is growing in impressive fashion. All of the regular apps are already onboard, but now a few "killer apps" are beginning to take shape. U-verse and Microsoft have retained a close relationship over the years, with Xbox integration already being a reality. But now, Windows Phone 7 users will have U-verse integration as well, with U-verse TV subscribers able to download and watch TV shows on their phone for free during a mobile holiday trial.

AT&T U-verse Mobile for WP7 should come pre-loaded on any future devices from AT&T, and any AT&T Windows Phone user can log-in to U-verse Mobile by Dec. 31 and download and watch free for 30-days. Once the trial is complete, customers taking advantage of this offer will automatically be subscribed to U-verse Mobile for $9.99 per month. And U-verse TV customers who subscribe to the U100, U200 and U200 Latino packages can take advantage of a limited time preview to download and watch with U-verse Mobile at no extra cost through Feb. 1, 2011.



Think of this as Hulu Plus, but from a different company.
With U-verse Mobile, you can browse or search a library of downloadable shows, and select which specific episode you want to download. The selected content is downloaded to your mobile phone over any Wi-Fi connection, and you can then watch it on your device anywhere you want. That means that 3G downloading isn't supported; that was likely a decision made by AT&T, as they have shown to be quite stingy when it comes to letting streaming apps function over 3G. If you had any doubts that the company is struggling to keep up with 3G demand...

At any rate, U
-verse Mobile also lets you schedule and manage your DVR recordings at no extra cost, and the ability to download and watch TV shows is available at no extra charge for customers that subscribe to the U300 package or higher. Not a bad perk for existing U-verse TV users, that's for sure.

And U-verse TV customers who subscribe to the U100, U200 and U200 Latino packages can take advantage of a limited time preview to download and watch with U-verse Mobile at no extra cost through Feb. 1, 2011. The preview offer is available to U-verse TV customers on all U-verse Mobile qualifying smartphones.

AT&T continues to expand TV watching to the devices that matter most to you, with hit TV shows available on U-verse TV, U-verse Online, U-verse TV on Xbox 360, and U-verse Mobile. U-verse Mobile is now available on more than 10 qualifying smartphone models and on four major mobile operating systems.

With U-verse Mobile, you can browse or search a library of downloadable shows, and select which specific episode you want to download. The selected content is downloaded to your mobile phone over any Wi-Fi connection, and you can then watch it on your device anywhere you want. All AT&T U-verse High Speed Internet customers have home Wi-Fi installed as part of their service and get access to AT&T’s entire national Wi-Fi network at no additional cost.

For all AT&T U-verse TV customers, U-verse Mobile also lets you schedule and manage your DVR recordings at no extra cost. The ability to download and watch TV shows is available at no extra charge for customers that subscribe to the U300 package or higher.

U-verse Mobile is one of the latest ways that AT&T is mobilizing everything that’s important to customers — their favorite content, apps, entertainment and social networks. AT&T today delivers the nation’s fastest mobile broadband network as well as the nation’s largest Wi-Fi network.
