AT&T Brings Facebook® to your TV Screen with New U-verse TV App
Dallas, Texas, August 29, 2012
Whether it’s on your computer or mobile device, accessing your social media sites has always been at your fingertips. Now, you can connect with Facebook on your TV screen using Facebook on TV, the latest interactive app available from AT&T* U-verse® TV. The app enables you to connect to your Facebook account while you are watching your favorite shows.
The Facebook on TV interactive app delivers an even better way to watch TV. Through the TV app, you can:
- View your news feed, friends list and photos.
- Post status updates and share information about the shows you’re watching.
- Interact with friends and view their timelines, photos, and status updates.
“The TV experience is becoming more social, and we’ve always focused on delivering interactive TV apps that are more engaging and provide an overall better experience,” said Maria Dillard, Vice President of U-verse and Video Products, AT&T Home Solutions. “This app gives U-verse TV and High Speed Internet customers the ability to share information about what they’re watching on their TV with their remote, on any U-verse TV screen. It’s another example of how we continue to enhance and bring more value to the U-verse experience.”
The Facebook on TV app can be enjoyed by everyone in your household. U-verse TV customers can add up to ten different accounts on a single receiver. To access Facebook on TV, customers will need an existing Facebook account and a U-verse High Speed Internet account. You can create a Facebook account by visiting www.facebook.com.
U-verse TV customers already have access to several additional social TV apps at no extra charge.
AT&T U-verse added more TV subscribers in total over the last 3 years than any of the major cable TV providers reported** and is the only 100 percent Internet Protocol-based television (IPTV) service offered by a national service provider.
