Unfortunately for Xbox 360 users who use their console as a U-verse TV receiver, you will no longer be able to use that service. AT&T is informing their customers that they will no longer have the IPTV support for the Xbox 360. AT&T says this will come in affect after December 31st.
Users will have to order a traditional U-verse receiver but 360 U-verse users will at least get a $99 credit in return of their troubles, according to AT&T it was originally going to be a $60 credit but they decided to make it $99. It doesn't look like they will be transferring the service to Xbox One either.
Letter to Xbox 360 U-verse customers:
Dear Valued U-verse member,
We are writing to share important information regarding your Xbox 360.
We will be discontinuing the Xbox 360 as a supported U-verse receiver after December 31, 2013.
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.
If you would like to order an additional receiver to replace your Xbox please visit att.com/myatt or call us at 800.288.2020 for assistance.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
Thank you for being a valued U-verse member.
Your AT&T U-verse Team
