AT&T U-verse and Media Room on WP7 a go

 

We're not too familiar with the AT&T U-verse cable TV and high speed internet service (opens in new tab), but we imagine it's a lot like the more prominent Verizon FiOS.

The good news for U-verse subscribers is that you'll have the ability to stream your media content right from your Mediaroom DVR box (we're assuming that you have one of course). That's because Microsoft and AT&T will have a mobile client on or near launch that will support AT&T's system for Windows Phone 7, which should make many media-hungry folks quite pleased.

Exact details and features are not known at this time as it is expected that AT&T will have their own custom version of the software, setup to their requirements.

That AT&T "premier carrier for WP7" thing is starting to make a little more sense. So who's going to be watching "Jersey Shore" on the way to work in the morning, eh? Eh?

  • Sealed the deal for me! I had read a little blurb months ago about this happening and was hoping, especially with that "premier partner" talk, but I couldn't find it again, so I thought it might just be a rumor. Now, hopefully, I don't have to actually have an AT&T wireless plan to utilize it. :-p
  • Does this mean that Uverse is getting Mediaroom 2.0?
  • Josh, I'm pretty sure thats the plan (based on CES 2010 announcements). It certainly would further differientate their offerings from the competition. While I would take advantage of using WP7 as a UVerse Remote and to schedule recordings, the #1 thing I'm mosted excited about MediaRoom 2.0 is that it makes MediaRoom available within Media Center. So that portable netbook/slate potentially could watch live TV too.
  • This truly is the definition of real features vs. apps. Bravo!
