Why is the AT&T TV iOS app reading the contents of the clipboard when it starts up?

The AT&T TV iOS app reads the contents of the clipboard when it starts up. Are the contents being transmitted to your servers? This is a huge privacy violation.

When the AT&T TV app starts up, it automatically reads the  contents of the user’s clipboard.  This is a huge privacy to the extent that Apple has now added a notification to iOS when an app does so. WHY IS THE AT&T TV APP DOING THIS?
