Movies are fantastic. Not all movies, per se – but the idea of movies. They can transport us into other worlds, get to visit places we may never otherwise see, have the chance to relive world-changing events, and so much more all from the comfort of a seat. With that – have you seen Texas Chainsaw 3D? It's definitely worth watching.


But I digress. This isn't about my obsession with the TCM series, oh no – it's about AT&T. Not quite as interesting, I know. So here it is: Big Blue is offering a new service to U-verse subscribers that will bring a whole slew of on-demand movies to their TVs, computers, and – of course – tablets and smartphones through the U-verse app.

The service, dubbed U-verse Screen Pack, will cost $5 a month and offer up "movies from major studios, with more titles added on an ongoing basis." You can subscribe to Screen Pack now by either heading to U-verse channel 9910 or hitting up AT&T's SP landing page.

Now, go watch some TV. On your tablet. Or phone. Or computer. Or even on your TV.

    Do the "tablets and smart phones" mentioned mean IOS devices? I wouldn't be surprised if it did...

    I imagine this is why the on-demand choices for HBO/cinemax/showtime have been heavily reduced the last few months.

    Should've known they were about to wring another nickle out of subscribers.

    I hope the preview gets better..98% of the stuff listed on there is garbage!

    It's all 80s movies or the ones you see in the $3 DVD bin :(

    They listened to customers about the on-demand part, but seem to have missed that the customers who were asking for that are not subscribing to their TV service.
