AT&T said today that its whole-home DVR service is now available in Detroit, Houston, Chicago, San Diego and central Texas.

AT&T’s Total Home DVR service lets subscribers record DVR content in one room for viewing on TVs throughout their homes. AT&T launched its Total Home DVR initiative, which lets subscribers playback standard-definition (SD) and high-definition (HD) recorded content on other connected TVs in the home, earlier this month.

The free service is slated to be deployed across AT&T’s entire footprint by the end of the year.

The Total Home DVR also lets customers stop a movie in one room and resume watching it in another on up to seven additional U-verse-connected TVs.

The service can store up to 133 hours of SD programming, or 37 hours of HD programming. The Total Home DVR can also simultaneously playback four SD recordings, or three HD recordings.

In order to provision the service, AT&T was able to automatically upgrade the Motorola and Cisco/Scientific Atlanta receivers through its IP network by pushing software client upgrades to each subscriber during routine overnight maintenance windows.
