AT&T upgrades U-verse Total Home DVR

MUMBAI: US telecom major AT&T continues to expand the ways in which its IPTV service U-verse TV customers can control and watch their TV shows.


AT&T has announced the launch of new AT&T U-verseTV Total Home DVR features which give U-verse customers the ability to pause and rewind live TV on any U-verse receiver in the home.


Most DVRs today control only the TV they‘re connected to, and other multi-room DVRs only allow consumers to record and play back shows on other TVs. However, with AT&T U-verse Total Home DVR‘s latest enhancements, customers can control, record and play back shows on non-DVR TVs and pause or rewind live TV shows from any room in their home, even when the DVR is connected to a different TV.


The new features are currently available in Mobile, Ala., and Grand Rapids, Mich., and are rolling out on a market-by-market basis to all U-verse TV customers over the next few months. 
 
AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets VP of video services Jeff Weber said, "We‘re taking our award-winning Total Home DVR service one step further to bring customers an even better DVR experience. Whether it‘s the number of shows you can record at once, how you programme your DVR, or the ability to watch your favourite shows on any TV, online or away from home - we‘re delivering a better DVR experience, and these new Total Home DVR features are just the latest example."
AT&T was the first provider to introduce the ability to watch recorded shows from a single DVR on any connected TV in the home when it launched AT&T U-verse Total Home DVR in 2008. U-verse Total Home DVR lets you record up to four shows at once on a single DVR, record and play back your shows in any room, schedule and manage recordings from any room in your home, and more.


These latest enhancements are examples of how AT&T U-verse is mobilising the DVR experience. Customers can manage recordings on any connected TV in the home and across devices with U-verse Mobile and U-verse Online. With U-verse Mobile, customers can schedule and manage DVR recordings, browse the U-verse TV program guide, view programme descriptions, and, on qualifying smartphones, download and watch many hit TV shows, and even stream some shows.


U-verse Online is AT&T‘s entertainment website which lets consumers watch more than 100,000 titles of TV shows, movies and video clips on the PC, and gives U-verse TV customers the flexibility to schedule and manage DVR recordings. If one is away from home and want to see which recordings are also available to watch on U-verse Online, one can select "My U-verse DVR" to see the episodes and movies that are available to watch instantly on the site.
