Sure, you can do that. But do it through the website, where it's usually cheaper.

Their website is screwed up. I went to check availability and it asks me for my account info login. I am wondering if U-verse is available in the 60563 zip code. Can anyone here send me a direct link to the channel lineup including HD programming and let me know if its available in the 60563 zip code?

Post #59 here is a direct link to it. All you had to do was look back a few posts.

Just insert your zipcode at the top.

^ Thanks. I checked it out my my zip code and the channel lineup is impressive from an HD standpoint. They have the best HD service next to what DirecTV offers it seems like. Unfortunately, I don't think they offer service in my zip code (60563), which is odd because it returned the channels available for my zip code.

^ Thanks for that info. I am puzzled to why Naperville does not have it out of all cities. Naperville is one of the biggest suburbs. They could make tons of money here. Maybe they don't have it yet here because its a big area and takes time to get all the lines in and what not.

Does anyone know if its true that with U-Verse you can't watch another HD channel if you are recording on another? If so, thats a huge disadvantage.

OK, i'm hoping that someone who already has U-Verse can give me some help deciding. What i've got right now is Comcast cable and internet. I've got their HD-DVR hooked up to my HDTV in the living room, a TiVo series 2 hooked up in the office w/ a digital box, and basic cable running into the bedroom.

I've called AT&T twice to ask questions and been reading up on U-Verse... Here's my concerns:

1) You can only watch (and/or record) one HD program at a time.
2) AT&T will only allow one DVR per home
3) (and this is a more minor point) AT&T doesn't have Sci-Fi in HD and i'm now really happy to have this from Comcast

So, according to AT&T, 1) will be resolved by the end of March as they increase bandwith (or something) to allow 2 HD feeds at a time. When this happens, i won't be any worse off than i am now.

Also, AT&T says before the end of 2008, they'll have a feature that allows you to share programs to boxes in other rooms from your DVR, so at that time, not having my TiVo in the office won't be an issue.

I'm assuming that since Sci-Fi is from NBC/Universal which is a big company, there's a decent chance that Si-FiHD will be added in the not too distant future.

The good points of switching are:
1) I'll save money
2) From what i hear, SD picture quality is much better than with Comcast
3) AT&T claims that their HD picture is SUPERIOUS to Comcast
4) I can always switch back to Comcast if i don't like it and i can likely get a better deal from Comcast if i switch back.

So, what do you all think? Anyone HAVE U-Verse and want to tell me if i'll be happier with AT&T?

I've had a lot of bad experiences with Comcast and am eager NOT to deal with them anymore. So, any input??

The Naperville city council fought AT&T good and hard prior to the statewide video franchise being signed. There's a VRAD box on my corner, but I can't get service. Also note that Batavia is also lacking from the service list. I think politics are at work here, at least somewhat.

I had a feeling thats what it was. I read an article about this, but it didn't mention Naperville. I guess I will never completely understand TV politics. I would imagine they will be in our area soon, within the next 2-3 months. That is just my guess though.

The way I read this, service is not available in all areas of each town listed, but is available in at least part of these towns. I'm sure it will take them awhile to spread out to everyone.

I am quite surprised too. Naperville is a big market with a lot of big spenders. Someone said in an earlier post that the city was fighting AT&T so that may be why. I would imagine they would be here soon though. I'm not sure if I will get it when it comes to Naperville though since I live in the uncorporated part (off of 59 by the BP gas station).

Got U-Verse installed today. Had problems getting sync at my NID. The Uverse installers called out a cable tech. Aout an hour later they had the problem resolved. Then it took them about another 5 hours to get the cabling inside the house working right. The downstairs was fine, but they ended up reusing the comcast cabling to reach the upstairs. Found a bad splitter and a bad section of cable that they had to replace.

They did a fantastic job, HD picture seems better that Comcast from what I remember, about on par with OTA. SD picture blows comcast away.

Not to start finding all the glitches and gotchas.

LYU thanks for the update, good to hear about the HD PQ

If I had it offered here, I'd be really close to getting it, I hate Comcast, and already have ATT DSL and really like it, the one factor that would hold me back is Comcast Sports Net HD though, they NEED to get this.

I'm in Roselle, IL,. I guess we were supposed to be one of the first communities to get it and have early testing here, until my **** mayor stepped in. I don't know the full story, but I remember her saying she had a problem with those boxes (I guess the VRADS referred to in this thread, sorry, don't know the lingo). She even put some up around town with signs asking if we really wanted to see these put up, since that's what ATT wanted, uhhh, yeah, actually I don't mind at all, especially if it means competition for Comcast.

Anyways, like I said, I don't know the whole story, but the last article I tried to find said that my town, along with a few others, are either being sued, or are sueing AT&T, so I guess I've either got no chance or a long wait...Again, I don't know the whole story, it may have had to do with AT&T trying to get out of some laws or something, seems silly to make a big deal about those boxes, but who knows

Today was very much a roller coaster ride with my U-Verse install. It started with being told that the install wasn't going to happen after all, then having things worked out so they were able to get a tech here today after all. Then, after 6 hours and 3 techs, i was told that the phone wiring was installed incorrectly when the building was constructed and, as a result, i wasn't going to get U-Verse ever. After a LONG talk with an unreasonably angry customer service manager (although, i was probably overly aggressive with her as well...) it seemed that this particular roller coaster ride had ended badly.

THEN.... it turned out my tech had stayed around waiting for more back-up from a line tech. The line tech was able to figure out a way around the wiring issues. The install STILL hasn't been completed but i've been assured that it WILL happen tomorrow.

I've been posting over at ther UVerseUsers website all day. As i said there, it's clear that AT&T isn't perfect (and since U-Verse is so new to this market, it's easy to understand some problems early one), but to their credit, they have (so far) resolved each issue as they come up. With some notable hiccups, no matter what, AT&T has been making good on each of their promises. I really can't fault them; that is, as long as my service is actually installed tomorrow and works as i think it will...

How fast is the tuning when you change channels? How is the menu structure when using guide and stuff like that?

Just got a new STB update, the channel change speed has decreased even more. Was about a second before, now I'd say it's less than half a second.

My install FINALLY was completed yesterday. So far i'm impressed. Picture quality is FANTASTIC... much better than Comcast on SD and very comparable (if not better) than Comcast on HD. I've gone w/ Pro internet (middle speed) which is definitely slower than my cable modem was, but definitely fast enough for my purposes.

All in all it was worth the wait!!!!

No it doesn't. CableCards are for cable service, U-Verse isn't cable.

Fios broadcasts video just like cable, it just sends it over fiber instead of cable. Only VOD and the cable guide are sent over IP. Uverse sends everything over IP.
