AT&T U-verse Introduces Total Home DVR

att_logo.gifAT&T Launches
U-verse Total Home DVR in the Los Angeles, St. Louis and Fresno areas, giving U-verse
TV customers the freedom to play back SD and HD recorded programs on any connected
TV in the home, at no additional charge.

AT&T U-verse Total Home DVR customers can:

  • Watch HD and SD DVR recordings on other connected TVs in the home. In addition to
    your DVR, you can access, play, pause, rewind and fast forward any recorded SD or
    HD program on up to seven additional U-verse-connected TVs. All U-verse DVRs and receivers
    are HD-capable.

  • Pause a recorded show and pick up where you left off in another room.

  • Play back multiple, independent viewings of the same recorded show on different TVs.

  • Play back up to four recorded shows at once. Up to three can be HD recorded programs.

  • Watch up to five HD programs simultaneously throughout the home, including two live
    HD programs and three recorded HD programs.

  • Record more of the show you want to see with soft padding, which automatically adds
    1 minute to the beginning and 2 minutes to the end of each pre-scheduled recording.

  • Organize recorded content by series. Series recordings will be grouped as a single
    heading in the recorded TV menu, making it easier for customers to manage and select
    their recorded programs.

  • Store up to 37 hours of HD content or up to 133 hours of SD content, which is more
    storage than most cable providers’ DVRs.

  • Record up to four programs at once on a single DVR — another feature that is exclusive
    to AT&T U-verse TV.

  • Set the DVR while on the go from your PC or wireless phone. With AT&T Yahoo! Web and
    Mobile Remote Access to DVR, you can schedule recordings from any Web-connected PC
    or compatible mobile phone (wireless service charges apply) by using your AT&T High
    Speed Internet account.

Using IP technology, Total Home DVR capabilities have been seamlessly provided to
existing customers’ DVRs without the need to swap their current equipment. The U-verse
network architecture and IPTV service allow Total Home DVR functionality to be enabled
by a software update, without any action or hassle for existing customers.

Total Home DVR is the latest addition to the constantly evolving suite of features
that has been introduced to all U-verse TV customers at no extra charge since the
AT&T U-verse launch in June 2006. These features include:

  • Mobile Remote Access to DVR, which lets you schedule and manage DVR recordings from
    any compatible mobile phone.

  • AT&T U-bar, which brings customizable weather, stock, sports and traffic information
    to the U-verse TV screen, without interrupting the current program.

  • AT&T Online Photos from Flickr, which allows you to simply and conveniently browse
    the photos you’ve uploaded to flickr.com and watch slide shows on your U-verse TV
    screen from the comfort of your couch.

  • Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Football, which allows you to track the progress of your fantasy
    team — including current team matchups and league standings — directly from your
    TV screen through the AT&T U-bar.

  • YELLOWPAGES.COM TV, for fast and easy searches to find local businesses and other
    information via your TV screen.

  • AT&T Yahoo! Games, so you can play your favorite online games — including Sudoku,
    Solitaire, JT’s Blocks, Mah-jongg Tiles and Chess — on the TV screen.

In the future, AT&T plans to add to its Total Home DVR service with the ability to
schedule recordings and pause or control live TV from non-DVR receivers.

AT&T is deploying next-generation AT&T U-verse services as part of its mission to
connect people with their world, everywhere they live and work, and do it better than
anyone else. Customers benefit from integrated AT&T services across the three screens
they value most: the TV, the PC and the wireless phone.
