Research in Motion's BlackBerry Curve 3G is the latest smartphone to get AT&T's U-verse Mobile app, which gives U-verse subscribers the ability to browse the U-verse TV program guide, schedule and manage their DVR recordings, and for subscribers with qualifying TV plans, download TV shows over any WiFi connection, and watch them on their qualifying smartphone from anywhere. The BlackBerry Curve 3G launched in AT&T company owned retail stores yesterday.
"We're making TV content available where you want it, and on the devices that matter most to you," said Jeff Weber, vice president of video services, AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets.
The app is available to all U-verse TV customers, and the ability to download and watch select content is available for customers that subscribe to the U300 package or higher. U-verse customers can upgrade their TV packages at any time with the Account Manager app on channel 9910 or at AT&T U-verse.
AT&T continues to expand TV watching to more devices, with TV shows available on U-verse TV, U-verse Online, U-verse TV on Xbox 360, and several smartphones with U-verse Mobile.
