How AT&T U-verse delivers Advanced TV.


SM
Copper wire pipe

Watch different TV shows in multiple rooms at the same time!

Fiber optic pipe

AT&T U-verse delivers the future of television to you over a network that includes state-of-the-art fiber optics. Simply put, a fiber optic cable is a pipea way to transmit datain the same way that coaxial cable is a pipe. But older networks simply cannot compete with faster, more reliable fiber optic technology.

Why fiber optic network delivery is superior:


TV and high-speed Internet are transmitted by fiber optic light bursts rather than electrical signals. Light bursts travel great distances, with more speed and increased bandwidth, which means AT&T U-verse can send multiple transmissions at the same time, with less signal interference so you enjoy phenomenal picture and sound quality. INCLUDED!AT&T U-verse installation includes one HD-ready receiver and DVR service with most packages (additional receivers available for a low monthly rental fee). Installation also includes a wireless gateway for home entertainment and productivity that connects you like never before. While sports are on in the den The kids can still watch their favorite TV series.

Needhelpona specifictopic? Tune to Channel 411, or press video on demand on your remote and select help. Learn more on p. 27.

Enjoy wireless convenience anywhere, indoors or outside.

Whats in it for you:


> You can watch and record up to four shows at the same time, while also downloading large Internet files to your PC virtually anywhere in the house or even outside. > AT&T U-verse can deliver more content, including HD, over its fiber optic technology. > Fiber optic transmission speed changes channels fast, with no drag or delay. > You get new interactive features that make TV more funview slide shows of your own digital photos on TV, play games on TV, get Internet sports or finance news, and more.

Pause, play, replay, and record live TV using your remote.


Your main AT&T U-verseSM receiver is also a digital video recorder (DVR)and just about the only thing you cant do with a DVR is fast-forward into the future. In addition to recording all your favorite programs (read more about DVR recording on p. 31), your DVR stores up to 90 minutes of live TV on the channel youre watching. Now you can: > Freeze a live TV program to answer a call or check on dinner, then resume playing at the point where you left off. > Create your own instant replays during an exciting game. Or watch the play again in slow motion to see how it was done. > Missed the punchline because someone was talking? Back up and hear it again. and time until play resumes. The action will freeze for up to 90 minutes. Note: If you dont think youll be able to return to the program in 90 minutes, simply press record to begin recording. (Read more about this at right.) Press play at any time to restart the program from where you left off.
