AT&T Launches U-verse TV App for Android, BlackBerry 9300

BlackBerry-UVerse

Last week at the Windows Phone 7 launch, AT&T announced that they were going to launch their U-verse mobile TV service for Microsoft’s rebooted mobile platform, but that hardly means AT&T is leaving their other platform partners out in the cold. Today, they announced that the recently-launched BlackBerry Curve 3G 9300 and a whole batch of new and upcoming Android devices (like the Bravo and Flipside) are able to schedule and record TV shows on your home DVR remotely, as well as download programs over Wi-Fi and watch them whereever you happen to be.

The U-verse app for iPhone has been available since the late summer, and with these two last OSes, AT&T has tied in their digital TV service with all of their high-end mobile devices pretty nicely. You can only download shows if you subscribe to the U300 package ($87/month or higher). One of my favourite parts of U-verse has got to be using your Xbox 360 as a set-up TV box; combined with the interplay Xbox has with Windows phones, it’s hard to not consider AT&T if you’re a gamer and/or TV fan.

Head over to AT&T’s U-verse site to see their available plans, or go ahead and download the apps below if you’re already a subscriber. In addition to the BlackBerry Curve 3G 9300, U-verse also plays nice on the Torch 9800.

    Nothing showing in my Android Market…only for ATT Mobile customers, maybe?

    I heard the one for other carriers is coming soon. I can still schedule on web with droid x but it is a little bit of a pain in the butt.

    “You can only download shows if you subscribe to the U300 package ($87/month or higher).” That is one of the higher packages if I am not mistaken, and you must have an AT&T phone in order to work the app. That is not a very flexible app. You can’t even stream live TV. Sure you can watch certain shows, but you have to download them on wifi first. As a customer and employee of DISH Network, I have been using the DISH Remote Access app for a long time and it is awesome. Using this app and my 922 SlingLoaded receiver, I am able to stream live TV and recorded shows to my Evo 4G from Sprint. That’s right, I don’t have to have a specific carrier just to watch TV. Additionally, with DISH, there is no minimum package that I have to have in order to use the app, any channel I subscribe to will work! I encourage anyone and everyone to take a look at dish.com/tveverywhere for more information on taking all of your channels with you!
