Still prefer using a dedicated UI for the TV service with Windows. 


Don't blame you there.  However, apparently the decision has been made that they no longer wish to spend their efforts in maintaining that web interface.  There are Android emulators that run on Windows, sounds to me like it would be a poor experience, but I know some have tried it.

Re: Online Streaming Ending after October 2017 ?!

To the extent this becomes an issue to use the streaming service on Windows, will have to make a call. 

I use Amazon Prime often on my ultrabook, and even though there isn't a UWS app for it, I can still use Chrome effectively to watch shows/movies.  The equivalent situation then would be to set aside tabs or shortcuts for each broadcaster, NBCSN, WatchESPN, CNN, HBO and so on, which requires a bit more effort.  In the case of Apple iOS, they have tried to build an aggregator function but it does require linking each channel app and then there's that whole authentication and entitlement bugaboo.  Perhaps Microsoft will have to build something similar. 

Directv Now is yet another option, however my first experience with the nascent service wasn't all that good.

Re: Streaming in the browser to end after October? Tell me it's not true!

I posted about this also on or about September 30.  At first there were a lot of views but no replies.  Now the post has completely disappeared.  It is not in my subscriptions and I cannot find it in any forum.  I think I posted in an internet forum because the topic was about viewing in a browser on a desktop computer but I am not sure.  My post had a similar subject heading about "Streaming in the browser to end after October" in the banner across the Guide and I pointed out that the apps they suggested were all for devices I do not own.  I have only a desk top and a lap top.

I also noted that I chatted with someone in AT&T support who said it was the networks fault or something and AT&T was trying to resolve it.  AT&T seems to be saying that it was not their idea to take streaming through a browser away.  I was trying to get more info.  Not only did I not get more info but my question has been wiped out of all forums and I don't know why.  That has never happened before.

Re: Streaming in the browser to end after October? Tell me it's not true!

I don't understand why this topic isn't lighting up the forums!  Do that many people really watch their TV shows on a tiny hand-held screen?  I have an awesome set of headphones for my laptop and a high-end monitor.  The "TV experience" rivals most big screen TVs.  If this really is a "network thing", then by golly, what needs to be done to resolve the "network thing"?   I'm going to wander on over to Comcast and Verizon's websites to see if they still offer TV shows "in the browser".  I have no intention of watching U-verse TV on a hand-held device.

Probably no one is posting to this thread because of this other similar thread.

Re: Streaming in the browser to end after October? Tell me it's not true!

I thought Uverse TV in the home was designed to be watched on a TV using a Uverse receiver.....

Get a receiver and if your device has a HDMI port use it as the tv.

 

Considering most streaming is using apps... Netflix (100 million subscribers global) Amazon Prime (estimate 55 million) Hulu (12-15 million), etc the Uverse app is the logical progression and moves in the direction of DirecTv Now.

 

Question... What will Disney, Fox, Comcast and ATT all have in common with approval of Time Warner Media sale?

 

Answer.... They all will be partners in ownership of Hulu. TW Media owns 10% of Hulu which will be acquired by ATT as the company transforms to a media content company.

Re: Streaming in the browser to end after October? Tell me it's not true!

 The whole POINT of watching on my laptop hooked up to a high-def monitor is to watch in a room that does NOT have a TV.  I want to watch using the browser on my Windows laptop with my awesome headphones and on a large screen in my home office while my husband watches his shows in the family room on the TV - at the same time!  I don't want to wait for him to be done watching his shows and I sure don't want to be sent to the bedroom to watch back there.  

 

Folks like us use the browser-based U-verse for a reason - it is GREAT!

You could always add an ATT wireless receiver ($10/month) connected to your second tv.  It communicates with your dvr.  Then each of you can watch what you want or record what you want to view it when you want.

 

 

Never mind.  You don't have the tv.  Misread it. Man Surprised

Re: Streaming in the browser to end after October? Tell me it's not true!

Absolutely agree! I've been streaming on my desktop for almost a year that I've had UVerse and seldom watch on television.  I doubt seriously it's a "network" issue as I also watch Amazon Prime exclusively on my desktop and it doesn't seem to be an "issue" for them.  I've been disappointed w/UVerse OnDemand anyway as their service does not near match what I experienced with Charter Communications and their effortless online streaming through the browser, and if browser streaming is indeed coming to an end, it will be time to return to Charter with their no hassle, less expensive service.

Re: Streaming via browser will no longer be available after October

Well my Local cable company can do this. So I guess that is what I will be switching to.

 

"If you subscribe to (Local Cable) TV, you can live stream your entire channel lineups and (Local Cable) On Demand libraries on mobile devices or computers via the (Local Cable) Stream app and (Local Cable) Stream portal while connected to your in-home (Local Cable) network. While out of the home, you can still live stream portions of your channel lineup and (Local Cable) On Demand library."

 

This was one of the things that AT&T could have done better, but to get rid of it all together on PC/Mac is just unacceptable. I get that they are trying to PUSH people to Direct TV - I just will not be installing a Dish. So my only option is to switch Providers. AT&T was/is not perfect, but this is the just one more thing to drive me away from AT&T..

 

I can see why more and more people are just cutting the cord and doing without.

Re: how will I stream Uvserse on my PC after October 31st?

I will be responding by ditching AT&T altogether and embracing DISH or COX.

The best answer is to use each network's website.  You still are authorized as a U-verse TV subscriber to watch the same channels, they just won't be collected on one page for you any more.

If you must keep AT&T, get a slingbox. I have one that works for the purpose of PC streaming, as long as you have a uverse source box that is not otherwise occupied at home. Except for the buffering on AT&T sourced internet.

Most cell phones have a mirroring feature that will allow you to send what is on your cell phone to the TV.  Have you looked into that?

UVerse browser streaming TV going away?

I pay for a premium fiber connection for uverse and have been please with speed and service.  It looks like one of the functions, streaming through the browser is going away.  If it does, it is a deal breaker for me and I will have to get my provider elsewhere.  Is anyone else disappointed by this decision by AT&T?
