As I mentioned, U Verse was fast, I didn't say anything about Streaming.

It doesn't matter if they are sending it out as "1080p", it is still either 720p or 1080i when it comes from the network. 1080i is easily converted to 1080p (they produce 1080i content in 1080p and interlace it) and if they are supplying Fox/ABC content as "1080p" they are upscaling it from 720p which is pointless because your TV would do it otherwise.

Sorry, I should have added that he should have said it’s upscaling to1080p. If AT&T TV is upscaling it to 1080p?

I don't think AT&T TV is upscaling anything. They're de-interlacing 1080i networks to 1080p before streaming them out over the internet because a lot of devices (e.g. phones, Rokus, etc.) can't handle interlaced video very well. As for the 720p networks, they're not doing anything there, just streaming them out at 720p. But then either your streaming device or your TV is going to upscale everything to either 1080p or 4K (2160p), depending on their capabilities.
