AT&T Expands U-verse DVR Management

By Raju Shanbhag, TMCnet Contributor

Allowing its customers to manage their DVR recordings easily and effectively, AT&T has announced the launch of new DVR features for AT&T (News - Alert) U-verse TV customers on U-verse Online.

Now, any online user can watch more than 100,000 titles of TV shows, movies and video clips on his or her PC with U-verse Online, an entertainment website. They can also access additional features that enhance their entertainment experience. If the TV shows or movies are available for recording on their U-verse DVR at home, U-verse TV customers that are logged into the site can browse titles and instantly schedule recordings. AT&T Digital TV provides access to up to 390 channels of various shows in 100 percent digital picture and sound when and where the customer wants.

“This is another innovative way we’re helping you manage your DVR experience and enjoy hit shows from any screen,” said Jeff Weber (News - Alert), vice president of AT&T video services in Mobility and Consumer Markets, in a press release. Weber continued, “We continue to bring you more control and freedom with AT&T U-verse, and this is the latest example of how we are further integrating the U-verse experience on your TV, your smartphone and online.”

A customer can now select “My U-verse DVR” to see specific episodes and movies to watch instantly with U-verse Online. The new DVR enhancements allow the customers to manage DVR experience so they can manage recordings when they’re away from home. U-verse Mobile gives U-verse TV customers the ability to browse the U-verse TV program guide, view program descriptions, and schedule and manage DVR recordings.

Recently, the company gave AT&T U-verse TV customers an easier and faster way to manage their U-verse TV account with the click of their remote control. The company has introduced U-verse Account Manager, an on-screen app. With this offering, U-verse customers can access to make U-verse TV package upgrades, compare TV packages, view channel lineups, view their account summary, view product overviews and ordering information.
