AT&T is up and running with its U-verse Mobile solution for smartphones running Windows Phone 7 operating system.
If you’re unfamiliar with the service, the U-verse Mobile app is preloaded so that any AT&T wireless customer with a new Windows Phone can download and watch their favorite TV shows on their mobile device.
The latest development, however, is significant in that it represents the first time the AT&T U-verse service is available throughout the country.
In an effort to hook subscribers, AT&T has announced that AT&T Windows Phone users who log in to U-verse Mobile on or before the last day of the year, December 31st, can get the app as part of a free 30 day trial. Subsequently, the normal subscription rate of $9.99 per month will apply.
AT&T also announced that U-verse TV customers who subscribe to the U100, U200 and U200 Latino packages can try U-verse Mobile at no extra cost through February 1st of next year.
“There’s no better way to stay entertained during the holiday travel season than to watch hit TV shows on the go for free with U-verse Mobile,” said Jeff Weber, vice president of video services, AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets. “We’re excited for more AT&T customers to see what the U-verse experience is all about, and we’ll continue to expand this app to even more customers and devices.”
