Android user here: is the AT&T Mobile TV app Chromecastable? If not, will this ever happen?
7 y ago
When I try to display the programming from the ipad app to the bigscreen via wired HDMI or a casting software app, it says it detects a bigscreen & blocks it.
The iphone app & ipad app work on either device. The iphone app has a better remote. But. the iphone app on an ipad blocks programming.
U-verse.com on a browser on a computer, works fine via HDMI to a TV.
There does seem to be an intent to severly limit the possibilities. Perhaps theapps will be opened to usefullness someday, but it will be a bumby road.
Yeah, I'm guessing that AT&T would deliberately try to sabotage any sort of attempt at Chromecasting and the like... I don't think they'd be happy if people started using their app to watch TV on an actual HDTV. That makes my decision to not subscribe to AT&T's Mobile TV so much easier. Too bad, 'cause it would've made an awesome cable subscription replacement.
How can we improve?
