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.

That's for the XBox 360. I'm asking about the new XBox One....

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.

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.
