AT&T U-Verse to Drop Xbox 360 Support as TV Receiver
With the launch of the Xbox One in the past, already some services are dropping their Xbox 360 support. One such company, AT&T, allowed customers to use their U-verse service on their Xbox 360 instead of using a standard set-top box. Come the end of the year, support for the Xbox 360 as a cable receiver will be dropped.
Using the Xbox 360 with U-verse required an Xbox Live Gold membership. Due to this requirement, U-verse customers were to receive a $60 credit on their bill. This would essentially pay for a year of Xbox Live Gold for that customer.
In a letter addressed to the consumers, AT&T has upped the reimbursement figure to a $99 credit since the Xbox 360 app will end December 31st, 2013. Customers were also asked to visit att.com/myatt or to call to get a cable set-top box issued to them.
No word yet has been announced on whether AT&T will be developing an application for Xbox One.
