All this is pretty cute, but U-verse customers still like the AT-T-U-to Total Home DVR, probably because it costs less and holds more than the Xfinity X1 DVR. In some markets, in August 2019, AT-T began to replace AT-T-verse TV with a new service based on its De DirecTV Now AT-T TV platform.    In February 2016, Bloomberg reported that AT-T was in the process of terminating IPTV`s U-verse service by encouraging new customers to purchase DirecTV satellite services instead and by terminating the production of new set-top boxes for the service. A spokesperson for AT-T denied the closure of U-verse and stated that the company was “following its video marketing approach with DirecTV” to “realize the many benefits” of the purchase, but would continue to recommend U-verse television if it was better suited to a customer`s needs. Att CFO John Stephens had also previously stated that DirecTV`s largest subscriber base as a national service gives the service greater influence in the negotiation of transportation operations.   Among the devices in the AT-T-U-verse TV service includes an AT-T-verse TV receiver (“receiver”) estimated at $10 per month and included in the service charge on your monthly bill and, if applicable, a wireless access point (“WAP”) to provide the connection to a wireless receiver.

Additional equipment or other charges may be charged for all AT-T-verse TVs, including, but not exclusively, receivers. Recipients are subject to all taxes, fees and surcharges.
