AT&T and iHeartMedia Team Up to Bring Streaming Radio to U-verse TV
iHeartRadio Becomes First Streaming Radio Feature for U-verse TV
DALLAS and NEW YORK, July 8, 2015 — AT&T* U-verse® and iHeartMedia launched iHeartRadio, the all-in-one digital music and streaming radio service, for U-verse TV customers**. The addition of iHeartRadio to AT&T U-verse marks the first live streaming radio application available on U-verse TV.
By tuning to channel 532/1532, customers can:
- Search for radio stations based on genre, location or keyword
- Select from thousands of live radio stations from across the country
- Get personalized "For You" recommendations based on listening habits, location and musical preferences
- Quickly access “My Stations,” a list of saved favorites and recently listened-to stations
AT&T and iHeartMedia plan to add additional features to the app later this year, including custom stations created from a library of more than 20 million songs and 800,000 artists, song lyrics, artist biographies, stations "Perfect For" any mood or activity and thousands of podcasts.
“Personalization is one of the key features of AT&T U-verse TV, so a highly-customizable app like iHeartRadio is a natural fit,” said GW Shaw, vice president of U-verse and Video Products, AT&T. “We’re excited to bring iHeartRadio and its extensive offerings to our U-verse customers.”
"Our integration with AT&T U-verse is one in a long line of successful AT&T/iHeartRadio collaborations," said Michele Laven, President of Business Development and Partnerships at iHeartMedia. "We strive to ensure our listeners are able to seamlessly access their favorite radio stations everywhere they are, across all platforms, 24-7, whether that's on their TV through U-verse, on their mobile phone or in their car."
iHeartRadio is the latest interactive app to launch on AT&T U-verse TV. U-verse offers customers more than 30 interactive apps that make TV-watching a customized, integrated experience. Customers can access iHeartRadio and other TV apps by pressing INTERACTIVE on their U-verse TV remote.
