AT&T introduced a new iPhone app for the Apple ecosystem that lets its users download and watch their own preferred videos via its U-verse DVR system.
Just as the app from DISH Networks, the AT&T U-verse app is capable to work as a remote control. However, for the customers who have the U300 package or an improved version, users can stream shows onto their iPhone.
It was quite strange to see that AT&T did not clearly mention whether Apple iPad users, the device that uses the same OS, could also avail benefits from the new application.
The iPhones app makes use of only Wi-Fi connection, so as to download the content, but not the 3G radio.
The names of shows had not been revealed, which can be streamed by the customers, just that they should be from a number of popular networks.
Sprint TV, which is a devoted service that is built in a numerous Sprint phones, also along with that offers an ongoing collection of mixed shows, with both prime-time and re-telecasts.
David Christopher, Chief Marketing Officer at AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets, said that the firm was trying to make it possible for all to watch shows on iPhone without paying any extra penny.
