AT&T Confirms Xbox 360 As U-Verse Set Top
$99 kit, $55 installation fee and tech visit required...
Confirming leaks from last week
, AT&T today officially announced support for the use of the Xbox 360 as a U-Verse IPTV set top box. According to the announcement
, users will need to shell out $99 for an "Xbox kit" -- and they'll need to schedule a technician visit for a software installation. That install will be free for new users, but existing customers will have to pay a $55 installation fee. You'll also have to have at least one other AT&T set top in your home, according to AT&T. Since Microsoft's Mediaroom powers the company's existing U-verse IPTV set tops, using the 360 as a set top was a no brainer -- but it took several years of promises before this actually came to be.
