U-Verse Customers with AT&T now have Android App

AT&T has released an Android App for their U-Verse Customers but only to uverse customers with Android phones on AT&T. Both the HTC Aria, and the Samsung Captivate have immediate access to the U-Verse app.  The rest of their Android portfolio should see the app shortly except for those stuck on earlier versions of Android predating 2.1, which leaves out the Backflip and the Sony Xperia X10.

The Uverse app is for Uverse cable customers and allows customers to schedule and edit scheduling on their dvr boxes. They can also download content already stored on the DVR box to their supported Android handset via a wi-fi connection.

Jeff Weber, Vice President of Video Services for AT&T Mobility and Consumer markets said “We continue to innovate and integrate across devices, and we’re proud to bring the popular U-verse Mobile app to Android users,”

Uverse is currently the only 100 percent Internet Protocol Based Television service available by a national service provider.  There is no word when or if the uverse app will be available to Uverse customers who have an Android handset with a carrier outside of AT&T

  1. So in order for the U-Verse app to work, you must have an AT&T approved phone and you have to have one of the higher programming packages? That does not seem like a very flexible TV app. As a customer and employee of DISH Network, I have been using the DISH Remote Access app for a long time on my Evo 4G and it is one of the best apps I have used. It lets me stream live TV and recorded shows from my 922 SlingLoaded receiver to my phone anywhere I am. I can use it with any phone that has the app too. Additionally, I can have any package with DISH and I will still be able to stream. I encourage anyone and everyone to take a look at dish.com/tveverywhere to get all the information on taking your TV with you!
