Will there be an app for XBox One like there is for the XBox 360?

I currently use my XBox 360 as a receiver for u-verse and want to know if I'll be able to use the XBox One in the same way.  I know it has an HDMI passthrough as well as an IR blaster to control the box, but I think an app will provide a much better user experience.

 

I would hate to get hooked on the other video service apps and cancel my U-Verse TV service.

I agree with the original poster.  I want to know the answer for the Xbox One, not the Xbox 360.

I currently have the Xbox 360 and I am using it as one of my set top boxes to save the 7 dollar a month fee. Has there been any talk of U-Verse having integration with the Xbox One?   I know you can pass through any cable box set top box with Xbox One to get integration but that would still require you to have a set top box.  I was hoping that the Xbox One itself could still be used as a Set Top Box with a U-Verse app.

No word on any form of STB integration but I wouldn't get my hopes up too high. Microsoft sold the Mediaroom team to Motorola recently (the guys who make Windows Media Center and the U-verse platform) so having them integrate with the Xbox One as a direct STB is slim.

According to what I just read the only TV service at launch will be Verizon FIOS.  There are plans to have the other 3 brought back but there is no date that I could find.  I guess i'll be waiting to upgrade.

Very frustrating. How is it that Netflix and Hulu have working apps at launch but Uverse doesn't? Sucks. Using a STB is not a solution I will consider.

Bad News!  Just received this today.

Important account information


Dear Valued U-verse® member,

We are writing to share important information regarding your Xbox 360®

We will be discontinuing the Xbox 360 as a supported U-verse receiver after December 31, 2013

A previous communication referenced that you would need to purchase an Xbox 360 Gold membership for your Xbox 360 to work with U-verse service. We were planning to issue a $60 bill credit to cover that cost. We will now be issuing a $99 bill credit, which includes the $60, on your U-verse bill within one to two billing cycles. 

If you would like to order an additional receiver to replace your Xbox please visit att.com/myattor call us at 800.288.2020 for assistance. 

We apologize for the inconvenience.

horrible move on AT&T"s part without some level of explanation as to why they're doing it and what plans they have going forward. I refuse to rent more boxes from them and may simply switch providers again.

AT&T doesn't seem to do well with communication sometimes.  Ironic for a communications company.

 

My take on this is that the initial MediaRoom implementation for the Xbox 360 is no longer something Microsoft is interested in supporting/maintaining.  It has been about a year since the last major activity here, and AT&T suspended new installations of U-verse client for Xbox 360 around that time.  I'm sure the purchase of MediaRoom by Ericsson earlier this year cloudied the waters and made it tough for AT&T to see what their options were going to be.

 

Perhaps AT&T has some plans for the new Xbox One platform, but Microsoft's exit from Mediaroom makes that a much less obvious proposition.
