AT&T U-verse Starts Offering Wireless Receivers

AT&T has announced that starting on October 31 you’ll be able to watch your U-Verse programming pretty much anywhere in or around your home that you have a Wi-Fi signal.

As demonstrated in this video, the new technology will allow you to get a wireless access port from AT&T, and then you can move your receiver anywhere you want for the most part and watch your programming.  While you will still need power outlets for the television and the receiver, no longer being tied down to where the cable runs into your home is a fairly large advancement in home television technology.  As opposed to either staying near the wall panel, or running ugly cables across your rooms, you can now simply decide you want your TV set across the room, or even move it into the guest bedroom when company comes to visit.

For those concerned that this will mean a loss in functionality for your reviver, AT&T assures its customers that you will still have access to all of your current features including DVR recording, so it sounds like a win-win solution to us.

The U-verse Wireless Receiver is available for a one-time fee of $49 and a standard $7 per month receiver rental fee.  You can see a bit more information about it in the infographic below.  (click for a larger view)  Are you interested in the U-Verse wireless receivers?
