announces the launch of AT&T U-verse TV's French Open Multiview, an interactive TV app that lets U-verse customers view up to four different courts of French Open matches at one time, choosing from the Tennis Channel's main broadcast and five courts.
French Open Multiview gives you the ability to choose which of the six channels is the main picture, and easily select and record any French Open channel from within the Multiview. The app is available throughout the tournament on channel 661 at no extra charge to U-verse customers, and the additional courts are on channels 662-666.
To bring the French Open to even more tennis fans, U-verse TV is also giving customers a free preview of the Tennis Channel on channel 660 from May 22-31. French Open Multiview and the Tennis Channel free preview will both be available to U-verse TV customers with a U-family package or higher.
AT&T U-verse TV customers can also watch the French Open tournament for the first time in 3D. The Tennis Channel will broadcast all matches from center court in 3D during Memorial Day Weekend, May 28-30, for 21 hours of live 3D match coverage. The Tennis Channel's French Open 3D coverage is available on channel 1667 for U-verse customers who subscribe to HD service and the 3D package.
AT&T U-verse TV uses 100-percent IP technology, which allows AT&T to deliver advanced interactive apps such as Multiviews. AT&T introduced the award-winning Multiview app in fall 2009, and launched the My Multiview app in June, which lets customers choose and watch up to four of their favorite channels at once on their TV screen. Customers also enjoy Sports Multiview, Kids Multiview and News Multiview at no extra cost as part of every package.
AT&T U-verse TV includes many features that improve the TV watching experience for any sports fan, including Total Home DVR, which lets you watch and manage recordings from a single DVR on any connected TV in the house; access to an extensive HD channel lineup with more than 160 HD channels and growing; fast channel change, which lets you channel surf without the delay experienced on other digital TV services; picture-in-picture browse capability that lets you preview games on other channels; and the ability to follow your favorite sports teams through the AT&T U-bar.
