Re: Watching live uverse TV using apple TV

Currently there is no way to watch uverse through an Apple TV. Closest option is to watch on your iPad or iPhone and then screen mirror to the Apple TV.

Re: Watching live uverse TV using apple TV

We tried screen mirroring and the U-verse app stops after a minute and displays this error message:

AirPort video receiver is not supported (QP 1553) 

 

talked Ed to Apple support, they said it was a U-verse problem. Talked extensively to U-verse, did not recognize the error message and sent us back to Apple support.

We have the exact same problem. Was it ever solved?

Re: Watching live uverse TV using apple TV

We found out only certain (most) U-verse channels can be mirrored using Apple TV. Any premium channels you pay for, you have to download that app using your Apple TV menu. Like HBO, Showtime, etc. Local channels might not work either, like ABC, NBC, CBS.

Good Luck!
