AT&T To Drop U verse Support For The Xbox 360Xbox 360 gamers who use their consoles for AT&T’s U-verse might be interested to learn that the carrier has announced that after the 31st of December 2013, AT&T will be ending support for the service.  According to AT&T, “A previous communication referenced that you would need to purchase an Xbox 360 Gold membership for your Xbox 360 to work with U-verse service. We were planning to issue a $60 bill credit to cover that cost. We will now be issuing a $99 bill credit, which includes the $60, on your U-verse bill within one to two billing cycles.”

For those unfamiliar, AT&T’s U-verse service basically offered gamers broadband internet, IP telephone, and IPTV services. It launched back in 2010 for the Xbox 360 and basically allowed gamers to use their existing console as a television receiver. AT&T has also informed the folks at Polygon that the service was cancelled due to low customer demand, which means that if you just got yourself a new Xbox One console and were hoping that maybe AT&T would offer U-verse support for the next-gen console, well it looks like you’d be out of luck. So, any Xbox 360 U-verse gamers bummed by this piece of news?
