AT&T has some pretty cool news out today with the announcement of U-verse Mobile 2.0 for the iPhone. The new mobile app not only lets U-verse TV subscribers program their DVRs, it also allows users to download certain TV shows to their mobile phones. (The cache-and-carry approach) There are limitations, of course. Downloads only work over Wi-Fi, and there’s no word yet of an Android version of the app. (Where’s the Android love?) Still, AT&T has made a definite step in the right direction. And the new U-verse app is another data point supporting the TV-provider trend toward multi-screen video delivery.
