ATT U-verse hits Xbox 360 and Windows Phone 7

AT&T during its turn at the Windows Phone 7 event [archive coming soon] confirmed a pair of expansions for the TV side of its U-verse service. As expected, the carrier will add Xbox 360 support to use the Microsoft console as a secondary set-top box for watching TV. It will need at least one regular DVR but can show the full HD video stream.

The expansion will need a $99 kit and a $55 install by a technician if they aren't a new customer. The TV service should be available starting from November 7.

Windows Phone 7 users will also get U-verse through an official U-verse Mobile app. As with the earlier iPhone version, the component will let users remotely queue up DVR recording and watch any shows that have been greenlit to stream over the phone. On-demand video is an option as well and works over both 3G and Wi-Fi.

The mobile app should be available near the US launch of WP7 itself on November 8 and will have a month of free use if they aren't a U-verse TV subscriber. Those that are get the mobile app for free, while others can pay $10 per month for all non-DVR functions.

    Like people are going to pay an extra $154.00 for this dumbass service...Saw the demo of the phone on the today show by none other than the sweaty bald monkey Ballmer himself. The phone is a joke. Hope they bought a burial plot next to the Kin for this POS
