AT&T expands IPTV offering to PC AT&T is hoping to lure new customers by bringing U-verse services to PCs. Until now, U-verse was considered just a competitor to to traditional cable and satellite companies, but now with a new package called U-verse OnTheGo, subscribers can watch TV channels on a PC if there is a broadband connection available. The initial TV stations that will be offered include The Weather Channel and Bloomberg Television.
The company is offering a 14 day free trial of OnTheGo to customers but requires a prior subscription to the U-verse IPTV service. The service currently offers just under 30 channels in total. After the trial period ends, it will cost $10 per month on top of the existing U-verse package.

The service, like AT&T's U-verse IPTV offering, is only available in a limited number of U.S. urban markets. The company pledged to add more channels to OnTheGo as time progresses and to expand throughout the country. The OnTheGo service is currently limited to the Windows XP operating system using Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox.
