ArticleDETAILED INFO

Data Free TV with the U-verse app

Great news! If you have U-verse TV and AT&T wireless, you can stream your favorite movies and shows on the U-verse app anywhere you can connect to the AT&T network.1 And, it won’t use your plan.

Data Free TV eligibility
You’re eligible if you:
  • Have AT&T wireless 
  • Have U-verse TV and the U-verse app
  • Live in the U.S.

Good to know: This isn’t available in Puerto Rico or the U.S. Virgin Islands. Streaming outside the U.S. isn’t included in this offer and data charges will apply.

Streaming content
You only get Data Free TV when you’re signed in to the U-verse app. You can stream live and on demand content for all channels you subscribe to. Ads and non-streaming app activity may incur data usage.

Some app activities will use data. These include browsing or searching for shows, viewing app settings, and downloading or updating the app (if you aren't connected to Wi-Fi®). We’re working on ways to fix these limited data-usage activities.

Video quality
Using the U-verse app for Data Free TV won’t affect the quality of your video. But, the app uses video optimization technology to give you a better streaming experience. Most content is viewable in standard-definition quality.

Unlimited wireless data usage and speeds
Data Free TV with the U-verse app doesn't count towards the 100GB, 50GB, or 22GB monthly data threshold for unlimited plans. However, AT&T may temporarily slow speeds if the network is busy:
  • For AT&T Unlimited EliteSM, when you go over 100GB of data use per line in a month
  • For AT&T Unlimited ExtraSM, when you go over 50GB of data use per line in a month
  • If you have AT&T Unlimited StarterSM, any time the network is busy
  • For AT&T Unlimited &MoreSM Premium, when you go over 22GB of data use per line in a month

If you have an unlimited plan with a monthly data threshold, we’ll send a text to all phones that share your plan data when you reach 75%. This means 75GB for Unlimited Elite, 37.5GB for Unlimited Extra, or 16.5GB for Unlimited &More Premium.

Mobile Share data use
Data Free TV with the U-verse app doesn’t count towards your Mobile Share® data limit. But, if you use all your plan data and your Rollover Data® (on Mobile Share plans that include rollovers), then we’ll slow your speed to 128Kbps (2G speeds) for all data use including that for Data Free TV, until your next bill period starts.

You won’t be able to stream video during this time. If you want more data you can change your wireless plan.
