AT&T said today that its whole-home DVR service has broadened its reach into six additional city areas across the nation.

The newest additions for the service are Kansas City, Mo.; Oklahoma City; Columbus, Ohio; Flint and Saginaw, Mich.; and Lubbock, Texas.

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

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 allows customers to 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. It can also simultaneously playback four SD recordings, or three HD recordings.
