Event Details

Interested in building a native mobile application that integrates your television?

We’ve got an app challenge for you: Build a native (Android or iOS) mobile application that leverages our AT&T U-verse enabled APIs to let your mobile application communicate with the U-verse receiver. Our U-verse Enabled APIs allow your application to connect to a U-verse receiver, integrate remote control functions, channel tunes, enable next generation discovery, and display content on the television! To encourage entrants of this challenge to be as disruptive and innovative as possible we have broken the contest down into three categories: music, gaming, and wildcard. The wildcard category encompasses apps that will focus on everything from TV navigation to social media to health related apps. Wildcard allows you to bring your application imagination to us so make sure you bring your creative A-game.


This competition is open to current mobile applications that have not previously been submitted for integration with the AT&T U-verse Enabled platform and teams building applications from scratch are encouraged to use any frameworks or templates they find helpful. To make this challenge even more enticing, teams will be competing their share of up to $35K in prizes! What are the guidelines? There are several sample AT&T U-verse Enabled apps and those should provide you with a baseline for how your app should look and feel. Here are the details:
