App Gives Cubs Fans a Better View

Posted by at 10:05 am on August 11, 2010

During this Chicago Cubs baseball season, AT&T and WGN-TV are offering a new app that puts fans in the director’s chair to control how they watch the team compete at Wrigley Field.   AT&T U-verse TV recently announced the launch of the Chicago Cubs Multiview, a new TV app that lets you view up to four different camera angles of the Chicago Cubs home games at one time, choosing from the main WGN-TV Chicago game broadcast and six alternate camera angles.   With Chicago Cubs Multiview, you can choose which of the seven channels is the main picture, and easily select and record any Chicago Cubs channel from within the app. The alternate camera angles are set up for each home game above home plate, third base, first base and center field.

“Only U-verse TV customers have the power to choose how they watch every pitch and home run at the Chicago Cubs home games,” said Dan York, president of content, AT&T. “With Chicago Cubs Multiview, fans will get a full-field look at this season’s home game action from WGN. It’s like you’re sitting in the production booth and calling the shots. We’re excited to deliver this new capability with WGN, all enabled by our advanced TV service and technology.”

Chicago Cubs Multiview will be available to all U-verse TV customers in the Chicago area on channel 780. The app is available at no extra charge for the Chicago Cubs home games that air on WGN for the rest of this season, starting with the Chicago Cubs game on Sunday, Aug. 8.

AT&T introduced the award-winning Multiview app in fall 2009, and launched the exclusive My Multiview app in June, which lets customers choose and watch up to four of their favorite channels at once on their TV screen.   In October 2009, AT&T trialed a Mavs Multiview in Dallas featuring multiple camera angles for two Dallas Mavericks pre-season games.
