AT&T TV

Launched 2019
Next Generation Set-top-box / Cable TV / Smart Remote 
The AT&T R1 remote is a long-overdue replacement for the decade-old RC72 DirecTV unit being used by 15m customers nationwide. In contrast to the Fiber Gateway, the remote is a “high-touch” product that needed to be validated ergonomically and cognitively for an aging base clientele. The list of clients for this product included hospitals, hotels, schools, venues, the disabled and elderly. Furthermore, the new remote must have compatibility with legacy products which created a dizzying array of constraints from both internal and external stakeholders culminating to 5 years of research and development.
