A number of studies have shown that consumers who own tablet computers will use their devices while watching TV.

With this app, users can link their iPad to any U-verse TV receiver and access a number of new features, including getting more information about the TV shows, full-featured U-verse remote control, new search functionality, and sharing thoughts on Facebook about what they are watching.  

Outside of the home, users can watch TV shows and movies based on their U-verse TV package over a WiFi connection and even schedule programming on their DVR, which it currently offers on its U-verse app for iPhone and iPod touch.   

After completing a one-time set up process for each U-verse receiver, U-verse customers can hook up the app to any TV receiver in their home linked by their WiFi network. Customers can then name each receiver with a default name such as "living room" or "bedroom," or create a personalized name.
