AT&T Rolls Out More Free TV Apps to U-verse Customers

AT&T announced the launch of two new TV apps for AT&T U-verseSM
customers: Offers On Demand, an app that lets you redeem a coupon code
on-screen for discounts on movie rentals; and Caller ID on TV, an app
that lets you view your U-verse Voice Caller ID and voicemail
notifications on your U-verse TV screen.

With the addition of these apps, U-verse TV has made 20 TV apps available to customers at no extra charge since its initial launch, with 12 of those apps added this year alone.

“These
apps make U-verse services even more useful and interactive for our
customers, and that’s exactly what every app should do,” said Jeff
Weber, vice president of video services for AT&T Mobility and
Consumer Markets. “This has been a big year for U-verse TV
applications. We’re delivering apps that not only enhance what you can
do on your TV screen, but add value across your entire U-verse
experience.”

Offers On Demand lets
U-verse TV customers easily redeem coupons from their TV for discounted
movie rentals. After entering the coupon code on channel 199, you can
instantly redeem the coupon to select and watch a movie. The app will
also save a list of your available coupons and their expiration dates
if you want to return and watch the movie later.

U-verse TV customers can find Offers On Demand coupon codes on channel 200, at http://uconnect.att.com
and in the monthly U-guide magazine. U-verse TV and AT&T wireless
customers can also opt in for Offers On Demand coupon codes via U-verse
Mobile Alerts by texting “On Demand” to 9696. Offers On Demand is now
available to all U-verse TV customers at no extra charge and the first
coupon code will be available on Nov. 23.

Caller ID on TV lets customers
view their U-verse Voice Caller ID and voicemail notifications on their
U-verse TV screen. Without interrupting your program, a small message
will appear on your TV screen for six seconds when a new call comes in
or when you receive a voicemail message.

The
app is now available to all U-verse TV and Voice customers in Austin at
no extra charge, and will be rolling out on a market-by-market basis to
all U-verse markets. Customers already enjoy apps that integrate their
U-verse TV and U-verse Voice services, including the ability to view a
log of recent incoming calls on your TV screen with Call History and
the ability to initiate a call from your TV with Click to Call. ESPN FULL COURT Multiview
is now available for all U-verse TV ESPN FULL COURT package
subscribers. The app lets basketball fans view four channels of ESPN
college basketball coverage at one time on channels 4500 and 621.
U-verse TV customers can order the ESPN FULL COURT package for an Early
Bird Special of $105 online at http://uverse.att.com through Nov. 28.

These
upgrades are just the latest examples of AT&T U-verse apps that are
included in every package and bring more value to customers. In 2009
alone, AT&T has launched 12 TV apps, including:

  • U-verse TV Multiview, an app that lets you watch up to four channels at once on your TV screen.

    information on your TV screen, without interrupting your current
    program.

    2009 Masters Tournament.
  • On Demand Top Picks, an
    app that provides rental recommendations based on their past rentals
    and lists the top ten titles U-verse TV customers are renting. The app
    is available to customers in Los Angeles, Cleveland, Hartford, St.
    Louis, Atlanta, Sacramento, San Antonio and Austin, and AT&T plans
    to roll out this app to all U-verse TV markets next year.

U-verse TV customers also enjoy several additional TV benefits,
including the ability to manage and watch your recorded programs from a

DVR; an extensive High Definition (HD) channel lineup with access to
more than 110 HD channels; the ability to program DVR recordings from
your Web-connected mobile phone or PC; personalized, on-screen weather,
