That's probably ly pretty accurate seeing g U Verse only covers less than half the states.
Doesn't that also sound like they have officially confirmed that UVerseTV is being phased out and being replaced with the OTT Service?

No, not nessararilly ...
Remember the OTA requires a good amount data and the ability to have Internet.
I still think U Verse TV will still be around for those that currently have it and for those that specifically ask for it.

Will it still be cost effective to keep UVerseTV around just for the ones who want to keep it and for those who specifically ask for it? Maybe one way to make it cost effective would be to make it AT&T TV delivered over both SatelliteTV and IPTV but still have the primary delivery method be SatelliteTV and the secondary be IPTV but only for those who want to keep it and those who specifically ask for it. Plus still maybe use IPTV for rain/snow fade backup?

Well, people need to have access to the U Verse Internet regardless ... to push TV out to those that already have the High Speed Internet (provided they are within reasonable distance) is not difficult at all, they are already using the gateways for Internet, the same ones that they use for TV. They are already using the VRAD connections for the internet, its the same one that sends TV out.

For what it's worth, we was told in our market att is currently putting a system together that would eliminate a dish entirely and installing a "coffee can" to run both tv and Internet services. They was calling them hot spots I believe? Can't remember for sure, I'll be gone before this system and the gateway systems both get rolled out so I don't have much Intel on either one of them except there was a few beta customers in cinci or Cleveland (can't remember) that is currently on this type of system. I asked how the receivers worked and they just kept telling me it was Internet based television and wouldn't give me any details.

Well, when U Verse TV was first coming out, there was talk that the VRADs were wifi capable ... if thats true, they could install wifi units in them and go from there I guess.
