Chat Live Online with Celebs and Sports Notables with Talk Back on AT&T U-verse
DALLAS, Oct. 9, 2014 — Your game-watching buddies may think they’re football geniuses, but what if you could watch a game with a real expert? AT&T* U-verse® makes it happen with the new Talk Back interactive chat feature.
Talk Back is an interactive second-screen feature that lets viewers ask questions online and have experts and well-known personalities answer them live via streaming video during major TV events. Talk Back users type their questions in a text field on the feature’s screen, then watch a live video stream as the notables answer their questions.
Football fans will be the first to benefit from the feature, with college football notables including former SEC players, coaches and media personalities chatting with fans during a live football game. Talk Back users can ask a question during a select college football game via the U-verse App for Tablet, Uverse.com or on www.att.com/talkback and watch live as SEC personalities answer. The first Talk Back session is scheduled for Oct. 11 during the Alabama vs. Arkansas game and will feature Felix Jones and John Parker Wilson.
