The television service now supports streaming live programs through the web and mobile devices.
AT&T has detailed plans to expand its U-verse features to include streaming options for a variety of devices and stations. Subscribers can access the streamable channels through Uverse.com or the U-verse app for Apple and Android smartphones and tablets.
About 108 channels are participating in the launch, including the Travel Channel, HGTV, Food Network, MTV, Comedy Central, Nickelodeon, Showtime, and Starz. Access to specific stations and content is based on the subscriber's U-verse package, and only certain networks (25 to start) will be allowing streaming outside the home.
U-verse customers can now view the streaming content from Uverse.com/Live. Support for the iPad through the U-verse app is also now available, and the iPhone will follow on October 16. In addition, support for Android phones and tablets will launch on October 21.
