announces the launch of new DVR features for AT&T U-verse TV customers on U-verse Online, including the ability to schedule DVR recordings directly from the website and to easily see which of your DVR recordings are also available to view on U-verse Online.
U-verse Online, an entertainment website available at att.net/uverseonline, lets any online user watch more than 100,000 titles of TV shows, movies and video clips on your PC, and gives U-verse TV customers access to additional features that enhance their entertainment experience.
U-verse TV customers that are logged into the site can browse titles and instantly schedule recordings for any TV shows or movies that are available for recording on their U-verse DVR at home. You can select "Schedule Series Recording on my U-verse DVR" to record a show or movie, and a red dot will instantly appear online to confirm your U-verse DVR is set to record.
If you're away from home and want to see which of your recordings are also available to watch on U-verse Online, you can select "My U-verse DVR" to see specific episodes and movies to watch instantly with U-verse Online.
The new DVR enhancements are examples of how AT&T is mobilizing your DVR experience so you can manage recordings when you're away from home. U-verse TV customers can also enjoy the flexibility of managing and scheduling DVR recordings from their smartphone with U-verse Mobile. 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. U-verse TV customers with the U300 package and above can also use U-verse Mobile to download hit TV shows to their qualifying smartphone from a Wi-Fi connection and watch them anywhere.
AT&T U-verse was one of the first providers to introduce Web Remote Access to the DVR in November 2006, and it brought three-screen DVR access to all U-verse TV customers with Mobile Remote Access to the DVR in April 2007. In 2008, AT&T launched AT&T U-verse Total Home DVR, allowing all U-verse DVR customers to watch recorded shows from a single DVR on any connected TV in the home.
