AT&T launches over 100 Live TV channels for Apple iOS devices

AT&T’s U-verse App for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad now provides access to over 100 live TV channels you subscribe to. But what might be more significant in terms of distribution, is that at least 20 of those channels are available to watch outside your home. AXS TV, HDNet Movies, Encore, STARZ West, and The Movie Channel are just a few of the networks offered with “real” mobile access.

One should be careful though, streaming TV shows over AT&T’s 4G LTE network may wring up some serious data usage charges, especially since AT&T stopped offering unlimited data plans a few years ago.

The new channel additions for mobile devices are part of AT&T’s TV Everywhere initiative, a growing sector which has other cable and satellite TV providers expanding their services to multiple platforms.

Other channels among the 200 now available to stream live (inside your home) include A&E, Cooking Channel, DIY Network, HBO, STARZ Edge, Syfy, and Travel Channel among the networks. For a full list visit AT&T’s tablet TV guide (which appears to be valid also for iPhones).

Additional features of the AT&T U-verse App include:

  • Thousands of on demand TV shows and movies.
  • Extra content and information about the TV show you’re watching, including episode synopsis, photos, cast and crew information, related TV shows and more.
  • A full-featured U-verse remote control with channel guide.
  • Ability to control your DVR remotely.
  • Advanced search functionality to help you find the content you want.

The AT&T U-verse app for Apple iOS devices was last updated on Sept. 29, 2013, and indicates the ability to watch Live TV as a new feature. The U-verse app for Android devices, however, was last updated June 17, 2013 and is not yet capable of the live TV feature. (Funny enough, AT&T’s press release mentions nothing about the lack of Android support.) Stay tuned for an update for Android devices, which we hope will be coming soon.
