AT&T and iHeartMedia to Bring Streaming Radio to U-verse TV
AT&T U-verse and iHeartMedia have launched iHeartRadio, an all-in-one digital music and streaming radio service, for U-verse TV customers. The addition of iHeartRadio to AT&T U-verse marks the first live streaming radio application available on U-verse TV.
By tuning to channel 532/1532, customers can:
- Search for radio stations based on genre, location or keyword
- Select from thousands of live radio stations from across the country
- Get personalized “For You” recommendations based on listening habits, location and musical preferences
- Quickly access “My Stations,” a list of saved favorites and recently listened-to stations
AT&T and iHeartMedia plan to add additional features to the app later this year, including custom stations created from a library of more than 20 million songs and 800,000 artists, song lyrics, artist biographies, stations “Perfect For” any mood or activity and thousands of podcasts.

“Personalization is one of the key features of AT&T U-verse TV, so a highly-customizable app like iHeartRadio is a natural fit,” said GW Shaw, vice president of U-verse and Video Products, AT&T.
iHeartRadio is the latest interactive app to launch on AT&T U-verse TV. U-verse offers customers more than 30 interactive apps that make TV-watching a customized, integrated experience.
Customers can access iHeartRadio and other TV apps by pressing INTERACTIVE on their U-verse TV remote.
