It depends on where your office is. From a technical point of view, it could very well be that a VRAD that only connects to businesses in a business district, isn't even configured for television because they would have too few customers.

Might be a safer bet to go with a satellite provider, that is what most businesses seem to go with anyways, because cable is often also not supplied to business districts.

Just use the residential availability checker. If you can get the residential plans, you can get the business plans:

There is business class U-Verse IPTV and/or Internet; there is no business class U-Verse VoIP (at least at this point)

Business class Internet can be served FTTP/BPON, FTTN/VDSL2, FTTN-BP VDSL2, or IPDSLAM/ADSL2+, just as its Residential class counterpart can be. Business class Internet does not have the 250 GB/month cap (technically Residential class does have a 250 GB/month cap, but to this point it has not been enforced AFAIK)

Business class IPTV can be served FTTP/BPON, FTTN/VDSL2, or FTTN-BP VDSL2, again just as its Residential class counterparts. Business class IPTV cannot be in a bar/restaurant customer area. Basically it would be used for break rooms, small office waiting rooms, office TVs, etc. The IPTV business class channel packages differ from the residential ones, and I believe there is no DVR service on business class (that may have changed though). The same 4 stream limit of residential service applies to business class as well

And, just as with any U-Verse service, availability varies as to whether you are within the service area of a VRAD (for FTTN or FTTN-BP services), (typically) a CO (for IPDSLAM services), or you have Fiber (for FTTP services).

U-Verse Business class sales can be contacted at 888.288.8339
