AT&T is making even harder to miss your favorite shows. U-verse has
been a growing and evolving service ever since it launched, and now it's
experience and extra features. U-verse TV is the television end of
AT&T's range of fiber services, and now they're adding a new feature
that satellite providers have been offering for awhile: online
U-verse TV customers can now use U-verse Online to schedule DVR
recordings directly from the Web, and they can also use this new
portable to see which of the DVR recordings can also be watched on your
computer via U-verse Online. U-verse TV customers that are logged into
the site can browse titles and
instantly schedule recordings for any TV shows or movies that are
available for recording on their U-verse DVR at home, and they can then
select "Schedule Series Recording on my U-verse DVR" to record a show or
movie, and a red dot will instantly appear online to confirm your
U-verse DVR is set to record.
If you're away from home and want to see which of your recordings are
also available to watch on U-verse Online, you can select "My U-verse
DVR" to see specific episodes and movies to watch instantly with U-verse
Online. It's obviously a great addition for customers who travel a lot
or who aren't usually home for prime time viewing hours, and for the
cable companies who aren't offering something similar...it's about time
to catch up to the other guys, or get left in the dust.

U-verse Online, an entertainment website available at att.net/uverseonline, lets any online user watch more than 100,000 titles of TV shows, movies and video clips on your PC, and gives U-verse TV customers access to additional features that enhance their entertainment experience.
"This is another innovative way we're helping you manage your DVR experience and enjoy hit shows from any screen," said Jeff Weber, vice president of video services, AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets. "We continue to bring you more control and freedom with AT&T U-verse, and this is the latest example of how we are further integrating the U-verse experience on your TV, your smartphone and online."
U-verse TV customers that are logged into the site can browse titles and instantly schedule recordings for any TV shows or movies that are available for recording on their U-verse DVR at home. You can select "Schedule Series Recording on my U-verse DVR" to record a show or movie, and a red dot will instantly appear online to confirm your U-verse DVR is set to record.
If you're away from home and want to see which of your recordings are also available to watch on U-verse Online, you can select "My U-verse DVR" to see specific episodes and movies to watch instantly with U-verse Online.
The new DVR enhancements are examples of how AT&T is mobilizing your DVR experience so you can manage recordings when you're away from home.

AT&T U-verse was one of the first providers to introduce Web Remote Access to the DVR in November 2006, and it brought three-screen DVR access to all U-verse TV customers with Mobile Remote Access to the DVR in April 2007. In 2008, AT&T launched AT&T U-verse Total Home DVR, allowing all U-verse DVR customers to watch recorded shows from a single DVR on any connected TV in the home.
AT&T U-verse TV is the only 100 percent Internet Protocol-based television (IPTV) service offered by a national service provider, making AT&T U-verse one of the most dynamic and feature-rich services available today.
