AT&T Broadband was AT&T's cable operations, which were composed of the assets of TCI and MediaOne, Prime Cable, as well as two Comcast cable systems (Sacramento, California and northern DeKalb County, Georgia) AT&T acquired later in a system swap. Formed in 1999 as AT&T Digital Cable, it was the largest provider of cable television services. Media and online services for AT&T Broadband customers were originally provided by either Road Runner or Excite@Home. In late 2000, AT&T Broadband acquired several Paragon Cable assets in Oregon and Texas during its merger with Time Warner Cable. AT&T spent over $105 billion to form the cable unit, agreed to sell to Comcast initially for $72 billion, but settled at $47.5 billion due to the declining market.

AT&T went through a corporate restructuring process in 2002, which called for AT&T Wireless, AT&T Business, AT&T Consumer, and AT&T Broadband all to become separate companies. Only AT&T Wireless was spun off (although repurchased later by AT&T), and AT&T Broadband was purchased by Comcast in November 2002.[1]

Hey guys. Muwen360 is here reviewing something a little different today. I’m actually here today to review the Cable TV and Internet service provider, AT&T U-verse. So I’ve actually had AT&T U-verse since November of 2008 when my family moved to this place so we’ve had it for almost 6 years now. But recently our community, upgraded our contract with AT&T from the U100 service, which simply means 100 channels which is also not available anymore by the way because the old contract was like 7 years old and a lot of things have changed since then, and also 1.5 megabits per second internet speed, Internet express is the name AT&T calls it. And so we upgraded from that to our new contract right now which includes the U200 programming basically 200 channels as well as a DVR, access to HD channels. On the internet side, we get Internet Pro which is the 3 megabits per second internet speed. And we pay about $50 per month for all of that and this is including taxes and other fees. So it’s a pretty darn good deal for me. And what I’m talking about here is not available on retail unfortunately because this is a contract in which our representatives from this condominium complex where I live specifically negotiated with AT&T, so it doesn’t apply to the general retail. But even for retail, their prices at least to begin with are pretty competitive. So if you want to see the prices for U-verse you’re goanna have to check out their web site and you have to type in your address first to see if U-Verse is in the first place, even available in your area since U-verse is currently operating in just 22 states. So after you enter your address, you get to see all of the available promotional offers in your area. You can sort by the offers that suit your needs. U-verse also offers home phone service by the way as well if you’re interested in that. So the bundles they offer look pretty attractive and most likely you’re going to get the service through purchasing a bundle with TV and Internet or other combinations because it’s a lot cheaper. And they also give you other perks if you sign up like a $150 Reward card for this one and free HBO for 3 months and stuff like that. But something that’s really important to watch out for is the offer details because when you sign up at first, the price listed is the price you’re gonna play only during the promotional period whether it’s 6 months, 12 months, or 24 months. When that period ends, you’re goanna have to pay full price for the service, and as you can see it’s not cheap anymore when you have to pay the full price. So definitely read the terms of your agreement with AT&T carefully so you know what to expect. So now I’ll start talking about the actual service, and I’ll start with U-Verse TV. So the equipment you’re gonna get when they install the service, is a receiver/set top box whatever you want to call it. This one I have right is the Motorola VIP 1225 model and it does have DVR capabilities. This box is good for recording up to 233 hours of SD or 84 hours of HD programming content. Unfortunately, U-verse receivers do not support external hard drives for increased content storage at this time. I’m pretty sure most of their packages include a DVR and if you want to add additional receivers for multiple TVs, you can do so for 8 bucks per month and also depending on where you live, you might get a black receiver made by Cisco and I think the Cisco box looks a lot cooler but they gave me the Motorola box which is fine. This is the remote you’re going to receive, it’s a pretty basic remote with all the basic functions. Nothing super special about it. But when you compare this with my old remote, they gave me 6 years ago, this is one just feels a lot better. The other piece, and the most important piece of equipment you’re going get is the wireless gateway. This thing is basically the central hub for all you U-verse TV, Internet and voice services if you have it. So this is the Arris NVG 589 and this gateway at least for me, is a pretty substantial upgrade over the old gateway made by 2Wire that I had previously. This gateway supports the newer networking technologies and it also has a built-in battery for back up in the event of a power outage. So now I will show you the actual U-Verse interface and this is like the boot up animation by the way if you care with AT&T branding. So it does take some time to load initially when your first get or whenever you reset the receiver manually which is what I did so I can you can show you guys the boot up screen but normally when you turn on the TV, it's gonna start right away. So now it’s finished and it’s playing the last channel that I was watching. But anyways when you press Menu button on your remote, you would get to this screen and this is basically the central command for U-Verse TV. Super simple, clean, straightforward interface here. The different functions are broken down into their respective categories. So I’ll start with the Live category, and first we’ll take a look at the guide and by the way you can also access a lot of these functions right on your remote as you can see there is also a guide button for example. So in the Guide, you get to see the show times for the different channels and you can also scroll around to see the programming for each channel as well so pretty self-explanatory. Then there is Uverse what’s trending and it just tells you the shows that are popular at this time. Then there is something called my multiview which allows you to see 4 channels of your choice and you see all of them simultaneously. You can customize it to your preference but I don’t think it’s all that useful since it just feels weird to watch it like this so I’d much rather just to have one channel on full screen. Then there is the favorites list, and search so when you want to know when a show will be on, channel shortcuts which breaks the channels down into categories for easy access and also the government and public access channels. Over here in the recording category, where you get to see and manage all your DVR recordings. So as you can see I currently have 7 recordings and if I click on this one, I get the option to resume play, start over, set how long to keep it and also the choice to delete it. You can also see a list of your scheduled recordings, I have a couple scheduled, and you can also add a recording here or just press the record button on the remote. You can also see your recording space to know how much more you can record. Then there is On Demand, and they have a decent selection of movies and TV shows. They also have a good selection of free shows for you to enjoy as well and you can use all of these sorting options to find the one you’re looking for. They also have some interactive apps available if you want to check out. Then there is the help section, with all the resources available if you need them. We also have the options page, channel options, parental locking, favorite channels, and hide channels. System information, and TV screen resolution. The highest resolution output available is 1080i best for newer HD TVs. And then there are the audio language options as well. So that’s really about it for the main interface. And then in places for example when you’re in a channel, you can use the arrow keys to see the upcoming programs on the channel, and when you click the info button on your remote, you can see a little summary of the show and you have the ability to record the episode or even series right on the screen and you can also check for more showtimes as well. You can also see the names for the cast and crew and also the audio language. The picture quality is pretty decent it also depends on the type of TV have but the picture quality is quite clear especially on the HD channels as you can see I’m currently on the HD version of ESPN so the quality is really, really nice. Another cool thing that you can do is you can pause live TV for up to 60 minutes when you press the pause button on your remote and you can rewind live TV as well so a pretty handy feature if you want to make you own sports replays. So now I’ll do a review on the U-verse Internet service and I’m currently using U-verse for internet connection right now obviously since I am on a web page. But they offer 4 speed choices available from 6 megabits per second down all the way up to 45 megabits per second down. And what you want to be aware is the word up to which means it’s not 100% guaranteed that every single time you’re on the Internet, you’re gonna get the speed advertised but it should be somewhere close to the speed advertised and most of the it actually goes above the advertised speed. So the best way to know our current Internet speed so you would if you’re actually getting the speed you’re paying for is by going to a website called speedtest.net. And this website simply measures the speed of your Internet connection at this moment in time so let’s get started by pressing begin test recommended server. Then it says selecting server based on best ping. Then it starts to measure ping and the basically the delay between the computer and the server so the lower ping the better. So I got ping of 30 milliseconds which is pretty decent. For the download speed, I got 3.58 megabits per second which actually is a little higher than the 3 megabits per second that I’m supposed to get. I got a upload speed of 1.43 megabits per second and I wish the upload speed could be a little better, a little closer to the download speed since the upload speed matters to me since I upload to YouTube. But overall the U-verse is pretty decent, the Internet from has always worked for me. As in I can still go on web sites but again as I said earlier you’re not always gonna have the Internet at 100% of the advertised speed since from my personal experience I usually get 3 down as promised U-verse about 70, 75% of the time so it’s still really good but just keep that in mind. So overall AT&T U-verse has served well for me over the years and I’m only speaking for myself because everyone’s experience with the service will be different due to a lot of known and unknown reasons but still if you’re thinking about getting cable and internet definitely give U-verse a shot and see how you like it. You can always cancel the service if you absolutely so basically this is just my video review on AT&T U-verse. Hope you enjoyed. Let me know in the comments down below what company you have for TV and Internet. If you also happen to have U-verse like I do, please feel free share you own thoughts on U-verse as well. Would love to hear from you guys and also please hit the subscribe button to support me so I can make more great videos like this. Thanks again and I’ll see you in my next video.
