We have some bad news for Xbox 360 gamers who use their consoles for AT&T’s U-verse. The carrier has announced that after December 31st 2013, AT&T will be ending support for the service.
AT&T says, “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.”
At least there is that. AT&T’s U-verse service offered gamers broadband internet, IP telephone, and IPTV services. It launched in 2010 for the Xbox 360 and more or less allowed gamers to use their console as a television receiver. AT&T has also said that the service was cancelled due to not enough customer demand. I hope you didn’t want U-verse support for your new Xbox One, because that won’t be happening now. Though it sounds like most people don’t use it anyway, so not many were counting on it for the new console. At least those who do use it have until December 31st.
