Dallas, Texas, March 22, 2012
The IP&TV World Forum has once again recognized AT&T*, this time with two IPTV Industry Awards for AT&T U-verse® TV. AT&T U-verse TV won IP&TV Industry Awards for “Best TV App” for the U-verse App for Tablet and “Best Consumer Device” for the Wireless Receiver. The IP&TV Industry Awards honor service providers for their innovation, excellence and achievement in the IPTV industry.
The IP&TV Industry Award winners were announced Wednesday, March 21 at the 2012 IP&TV World Forum in London. This year, AT&T was a finalist in five categories: Best TV Service Innovation, Best Service Growth Achievement, Best Multiscreen TV Service, Best Consumer Device and Best TV App, the newest category in the IP&TV World Forum’s award lineup.
"We’re thrilled to receive this recognition in innovation and excellence for Wireless Receiver and the U-verse app for tablet," said Jeff Weber, vice president of U-verse video services, AT&T Home Solutions. "These two awards reflect our ongoing commitment to delivering the best entertainment experience for customers, virtually anywhere they are, on any device. We look forward to bringing even more advanced apps and services to our customers this year.”
In 2011, AT&T launched the U-verse Wireless Receiver made by Cisco, the first fully-integrated wireless receiver available from any TV provider which gives U-verse TV customers even more freedom to watch TV when and where they want it, including rooms without an existing U-verse outlet. Earlier this year, AT&T also launched the U-verse app for your tablet, which lets customers receive extra information about the TV shows they’re watching, use their tablet as a remote control, watch hit TV shows on the go and more.
AT&T U-verse has received a positive response from customers since its introduction, and the IP&TV Industry Awards is the latest accolade for the service. In 2011, AT&T U-verse TV won an IP&TV Industry Award for Best Multiscreen TV Service.
U-verse is the fastest growing TV service in the country** and the only 100 percent Internet Protocol-based television (IPTV) service offered by a national service provider.
