U-verse takes Multiview app national
AT&T U-verse is going national with a feature that lets viewers of Chicago Cubs games select which camera they wish to view the game from.
Using AT&T's Multiview, an interactive TV app, U-verse customers will be able to view up to four different camera angles of the Chicago Cubs home games at one time, choosing from the main WGN America game broadcast and six alternate camera angles.
The app was available last year in the Chicago area, but AT&T said this is the first time it has made multi-camera angle functionality available to U-verse TV customers nationwide.
"Last season, our Chicago U-verse TV customers loved having the power to choose how they watch every pitch and home run with the Chicago Cubs Multiview," said Dan York, president of content for AT&T. "We're proud to work with WGN and WGN America to deliver this functionality to U-verse TV customers nationwide this year. The app shows the tremendous possibilities that our advanced U-verse TV service and network can deliver, putting viewers in control of which camera angle they watch."
