AT&T has launched a new version of its U-verse app for iPhone users. It’s designed to let AT&T U-verse customers schedule recordings on the go — and download and watch some TV content on their mobile phone. AT&T says this makes the company the first TV provider with a mobile app that doesn’t just let you manage your DVR, but which also lets you stream TV shows that you haven’t recorded on your own DVR.
The new app is called U-verse Mobile, and it repalces AT&T’s older Mobile Remote Access app for the iPhone. The DVR scheduling capability is available to all U-verse TV customers, but you’ll need to sign up for a U300 or U450 subscription plan if you want to be able to download videos using the mobile app.
Word on the street is that U-verse Mobile will eventually be available for BlackBerry 6 and Windows Phone 7. There’s no word on an Android version.
You can download the Free U-Verse Mobile app for the iOS from the App Store.
