AT&T Launches Mobile Remote Access for AT&T U-verse TV U-verse Customers Can Now Program Their DVR With Wireless Phones From AT&T

    SAN ANTONIO, April 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- AT&T Inc. (NYSE:   T)
 today announced that AT&T U-verse(SM) customers can now schedule and manage
 their U-verse TV recordings from AT&T wireless phones and devices. The
 feature brings the functionality and convenience of the U-verse TV digital
 video recorder (DVR) to the three screens central to many consumers' lives:
 the wireless device, the TV, and the PC.
     AT&T U-verse TV and Internet customers can use any compatible AT&T
 wireless phone or handset to search U-verse TV program listings, schedule
 program or series recordings, and manage or delete stored DVR content. The
 option to wirelessly access the U-verse DVR system adds to a previously
 available feature that gave U-verse TV and Internet customers Web remote
 access to their DVR on a PC using the AT&T Yahoo!(R) broadband portal.
     "Any television viewer can relate to the frustration of forgetting to
 program his or her DVR. Now, whether they're at the airport or stuck in
 traffic, AT&T U-verse customers can rest assured they won't miss their
 favorite shows," said Rick Welday, chief marketing officer-AT&T Consumer.
 "This is one more way that AT&T is putting customers in control of their
 entertainment experience, and it's another compelling feature from AT&T
 U-verse that goes beyond cable offerings."
     Mobile Remote Access to the DVR is available at no extra charge for
 AT&T U-verse customers that subscribe to both U-verse TV and Internet
 service. (Wireless service and data usage must be purchased separately.)
     AT&T customers can use the mobile remote interface to interact with
 their in-home U-verse receiver through any Wireless Application Protocol
 2.0- compliant cell phone or other hand-held device. AT&T plans to make the
 feature available to customers of other wireless providers in the near
     AT&T U-verse TV provides customers with several benefits that are
 unmatched by cable providers today, including:
     -- More High Definition (HD) programming than the local cable providers in
        our current markets. AT&T U-verse offers customers access to a lineup
        of more than 25 HD channels. New qualified customers also can receive
        one year of free access to HD service ($10 a month thereafter).
     -- HD-capable DVR, which allows customers to pause, rewind, replay and
        record live TV, at no extra charge with most programming packages.
     -- The ability to record up to four programs at once, another exclusive
        feature unmatched in the marketplace.
     -- Web Remote Access to DVR, which allows U-verse TV and Internet
        customers to schedule recordings using their AT&T Yahoo!(R) account.
        This feature is unique to AT&T among video providers.
     -- Built-in picture-in-picture functionality that allows subscribers to
        "channel surf" on any television without leaving the program they're
     -- Fast channel-changing, reducing the delay experienced with other
        digital video services.
     -- Advanced search capabilities so customers can search for programs using
        title or actor's name.
     -- And now, Mobile Remote Access to DVR.
     The deployment of next-generation video services reflects AT&T's
 strategy to become customers' preferred communications and entertainment
 provider and to deliver a video solution through its traditional footprint
 that provides greater value, flexibility and simplicity than competitors'
 offerings. AT&T U-verse TV represents a critical new service in the
 company's video portfolio, which includes AT&T Homezone(SM) service and
 satellite broadcast offerings.
