How to Stream Netflix With U-Verse

The Netflix streaming service requires a broadband Internet connection and a television or device that is capable of connecting to the Internet. However, as an AT&T U-Verse subscriber, you may have additional connection issues, and depending on the package you subscribe to, you may also have less bandwidth available for streaming -- though you can minimize this problem by setting up a default streaming speed.
