AT&T suspends sales of U-verse TV for Xbox 360 Hardware Kit

US telco AT&T has temporarily suspended sales of the hardware kit it developed in conjunction with Microsoft which allows customers to access its IPTV service ‘U-verse TV’ on their Xbox 360 games console.

Writing on its company website, AT&T states: “We apologise, but the AT&T U-verse TV for Xbox 360 Hardware Kit is not currently available for ordering as we work to improve and enhance this functionality.

The kit was launched last October for US$ 99 and includes a Motorola HomePNA Adaptor, Microsoft Media Remote Control, U-verse Installation CD and user guide.

It enabled U-verse TV subscribers to access DVR recordings from their Xbox 360, switch seamlessly from playing games to watching TV, access U-verse TV applications from the Xbox, and access the U-verse TV menu, guide, and a library of VOD titles.

AT&T added 200,000 subscribers for U-verse TV in the first quarter of this year to reach 4mn in service. The company collected two awards in the annual IP&TV Awards which were announced last March in London: ‘Best TV App’ and ‘Best TV Consumer Device’ – full details here.
