Consumers in the Miami Valley area of Ohio now have access to AT&T’s suite of U-verse services, which include U-verse TV, U-verse High-Speed Internet and U-verse Voice.

Customers can now order AT&T U-verse services in parts of more than 20 local communities in Miami Valley, and the telco said that it will make U-verse services available to more homes throughout the area on an ongoing basis.

AT&T offers a 100 percent IP-based TV service that offers customers more than 40 high-definition (HD) channels. U-verse TV subscribers have the ability to set their digital video recorder (DVR) from any location – including any Web-connected PC or compatible AT&T mobile phone (wireless service charges apply) – and can simultaneously record up to four standard-definition (SD) programs, or two HD programs, with the DVR.

AT&T U-verse TV subscribers also have access to AT&T Online Photos from Flickr, which allows them to upload photos and watch slideshows on their TVs. Other features of U-verse TV include AT&T U-bar, which brings customizable weather, stock, sports and traffic information to the TV screen; TV; AT&T Yahoo Games, which are also available on the TV screen; Built-in Picture-in-Picture; and an ever-growing video-on-demand (VOD) library.

U-verse Voice, a managed IP-based service that is delivered over AT&T's fiber-rich network, offers the following features: combined AT&T U-verse Voice and AT&T wireless voicemail with U-verse Messaging, which provides a single voice mailbox that can be accessed from any phone line or PC; U-verse Central, an online management portal where subscribers can manage all of their voice-related services; Call History; Click to Call; an online address book; Locate Me; and other traditional calling features.
