AT&T’s U-Verse is Expanding

Posted Tue Sep 15, 2009 at 01:00 PM PDT by Mike Attebery

Now available, AT&T’s U-Verse upgrade includes multiview and media streaming apps. In a very welcome update to their offerings, AT&T’s U-Verse offers new functionality with no extra charge.

While there are several new features, one of the most notable is U-Verse TV Multiview, a picture in picture solution that allows viewers to watch up to four channels at a time. U-Verse customers will be able to select which of these is the audio source and main picture. Multiview specific channels are available as well, and simplify finding the stations you want.

U-Verse subscribers will also be happy to note the addition of a media streaming service. While it does have the ability to show slideshows and play music stored on a PC, the lack of video playback makes this a much less exciting prospect.

Jeff Weber, VP of video services at AT&T feels that adding new features to their product is the way forward. “We offer numerous apps on U-verse TV today, standard with every package, and we're adding more all the time,” he states. ”It's another reason why customers choose and rave about U-verse TV.
