AT&T is pushing its own TV Everywhere play, making its U-verse service available on Windows Phone 7 devices and giving users a free 30-day trial during which they can download and watch TV shows on their device. It's the first time an AT&T U-verse service is available nationwide.
The free trial is available to users until Dec. 31, and customers will have the option of continuing the service for $9.99 a month at the end of the trial period. AT&T also is offering users a limited time preview to download and watch with U-verse Mobile at no extra cost through Feb. 1, 2011, if they are subscribers to the U100, U200 and U200 Latino packages.
"We're excited for more AT&T customers to see what the U-verse experience is all about, and we'll continue to expand this app to even more customers and devices," said Jeff Weber, vice president of video services, AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets.
AT&T said U-verse Mobile is now available on more than 10 qualifying smartphone models and on four major mobile operating systems.
U-verse Mobile also lets U-verse TV customers schedule and manage 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.
