Launched earlier this month for iOS devices, live streaming stations have now migrated to Android as well.

The carrier announces its U-verse TV mobile app for the three Windows Phone 7 smartphones that it will offer.

The company has big aspirations for its DirecTV acquisition and plans to unveil a new video service before spring.
