AT&T is rolling out a bunch of enhancements for its U-verse customers. Starting today and throughout the following weeks the company will add scheduling features to its DVR units, increase download speeds for U-verse Internet Max customers, improve user interfaces, and add a new On Demand Top Picks application.
All of the enhancements come free-of-charge to customers, including a bonus free movie month. The free movie month will give U-verse TV subscribers unlimited access to Starz for the entire month of July.
Here is a summary of the U-verse enhancements:
Exclusive new AT&T U-verse Total Home DVR feature. AT&T U-verse Total Home DVR capabilities will be expanded market-by-market in the upcoming weeks to add the ability to schedule and manage recordings from any U-verse receiver — a feature exclusive to AT&T among multi-room DVRs.
Free speed increase for AT&T U-verse Internet Max customers. All AT&T U-verse High Speed Internet Max customers have been given increased downstream speeds from up to 10 Mbps to up to 12 Mbps — a 20 percent increase in speed at no extra cost.
New On Demand Top Picks application. U-verse TV movie buffs will also have a new way to find that perfect movie with On Demand Top Picks. The new application will enable U-verse TV customers to view On Demand recommendations based on their past video rental history and view a list of the top ten On Demand titles U-verse TV customers are renting.
Web Remote Access to DVR enhancements. U-verse TV customers will soon have a new interface to schedule and manage their DVR recordings from any web-connected PC. (Powered by Yahoo!)
