U-verse OnTheGo brings AT&T's IPTV to PCs

ATT U-verse OnTheGo

Communications giant AT&T gave its IP-based TV subscribers an extra option on Thursday by revealing U-verse OnTheGo. The service extends the company's existing broadcasts by letting subscribers watch a mix of pre-recorded and live content from their PCs without requiring any special equipment; a broadband Internet connection is enough for most computers, AT&T says. Though some content is pre-recorded, key channels such as Bloomberg and The Weather Channel are broadcast live, making AT&T's option one of the first networks to air live shows on both computers and TVs.

Choosing OnTheGo adds $10 to the existing monthly rate for U-verse, which is available in a limited number of cities and currently requires a Windows XP system. The company promises, however, to expand its coverage and offer more channels in the future.
