What is AT&T doing to increase the number of simultaneous live streams?

Curious if AT&T is working on increasing the number of simultaneous live TV streams and when an increase may occur?  The 4 live simultaneous streams limitation is an annoyance.  Sure would be nice to see an increase to match (or dare I say exceed?!?!?) some of the local cable providers!

Cable doesn't have "streams". The only way to record more than 2 shows at once with most (if not all) cable providers is to pay for another DVR and hook it up to another TV.

 

I had to switch to cable, and what I wouldn't give to be able to record 4 shows at once and watch them anywhere in the house!

There are rumors that a stream increase is in the works.  When.......none of us would know that.

Right you are, BeeBee.  Many of us heard rumors, from different sources of 6 or 7 streams, by Summer 2013.  That ETA has slipped but they are working on changing the profiles to allow for more HD streams to the home.  Hopefully, the more streams rollout will roll happen soon.  Stay tuned, OP!

Thanks for the clarification.  You are correct.  I misread the local cable provider info....

I know it's in the works because when I had my installation here, I had 7 streams. Too bad an update cancelled it.
