Re: Any way to get more than 4 streams with U-verse TV?

I talk to a support rep and she said because they still fell under tel-co laws that they could only do 4 streams but once they get the FCC provision to not have to do POTS they will up it to 6 streams

Erm, what?

AT&T should be able to provide more streams to customers who are eligible for their new tiers they plan on making available in the future. However, getting rid of POTS will do absolutely nothing for customers who will not be eligible for the new tiers and will be stuck on the 24/3 or lower tiers. The amount of streams they can offer is based on the amount of available bandwidth, not a law.

That rep is feeding you a line of s***. DSL isn't covered by any "telco laws"; even Uverse VOICE doesn't because it's VoIP.

How many TV streams they can offer is based on MARKETING. It's physically limited by your line bit rate, but what they are willing to sell is a marketing matter... a TV only account doesn't get more streams, because you'd lose them turning on internet and/or phone service.
