AT & T adds Turner nets to TV Everywhere stable, launches new app
AT&T's U-verse video subscribers now have access to video content from various Turner networks.
U-verse customers can access shows from Time Warner-owned TBS, TNT, truTV, Cartoon Networks and Adult Swim through AT&T's U-verse Online Web portal, or through the networks' Web portals. The shows will be available to AT&T subscribers within 24 hours of their linear debuts.
Nearly a year after its launch, AT&T said U-verse Online has grown its content lineup by more than 50 percent and offers more than 35,000 full-length TV episodes. Last month, more than 1 million videos were streamed from the site.
"Our content lineup continues to expand on every screen, and the compelling content from Turner is a great addition to U-verse Online," said Dan York, president of content at AT&T. "This is another example of how we continue to secure rights from leading content providers to make TV shows available to U-verse TV customers on TV, online and on mobile devices. And we continue to work with additional content providers to bring more cross-platform content to customers."
AT&T added content from HBO and Cinemax, which are also owned by Time Warner, to its TV Everywhere roster last year.
AT&T also announced today that it's offering "French Open Multiview," which is a new app that lets customers follow up to four courts at once at the French Open.
The free app lets AT&T subscribers choose which of the six channels playing the tournament is the main picture, and it also lets them select and record any French Open channel from within the Multiview.
AT&T U-verse TV customers can also watch the French Open tournament for the first time in 3-D. The Tennis Channel will broadcast all matches from center court in 3-D during Memorial Day weekend, for a total of 21 hours of live 3-D match coverage. The Tennis Channel's French Open 3-D coverage is available to all U-verse customers who subscribe to its HD service and 3-D package.
