New U-Verse to Area

I have been informed that U-Verse TV and Internet is now available in my area.
I have looked over the ATT site but cannot find an answer.
I see the DVR is included with the packages I am looking at.
I have a total of 3 TV's in the house
Is there add-on hardware required for the other 2 TV's and is there a charge for these?
thanks

Yes, each TV requires a receiver or STB along with the DVR box so for three TVs you'd have one DVR and two STBs. Each non-DVR box is an additional $8 a month.

Go here and enter address and see what is available. You can build what services you want and get a monthly cost of the services. Your first bill will be higher to cover taxes, prorated charges etc. With AT&T you prepay your monthly services.

I may bewas mistaken but I thought that the DVR and first STB are included and each additional STB after that is $8/month (used to be $7). I think there is also a higher premium for each wireless STB, too.

I must have had some deal initially for the first 6 months or year and they included one of the STBs. I noticed all 4 of my additional STBs are charged at $8/month. No difference for wireless.

I did a fake setup for my neighbor's address but didn't press the submit button. That's how I got the price point for the additional STB.

I believe U300 and above cover some STBs U300 is 1 and I think u400+ is all of them...

I could be wrong though

Thank you everyone... Great information.
Now if I can get the Tech's and the Office of the President to fix the outstanding issues in the area, I might just sign up...

Oh... one more question.... Any idea why there might be a High End limit on the Internet connection of 18M? I am way less than 1200 feet from the new U-Verse box

You said you have TV available, right?

Some people who are on ADSL and go to VDSL2 leave their problems behind(unless it's an inside wiring problem, but most techs usually fix those on the install day).

The 18 Mbps may be the max because you're too far(the lines don't always go perfectly straight) or it's because of a database problem.
