DALLAS,  April 8, 2013  /PRNewswire/ --  AT&T  U-verseĀ®  and Disney/ABC

one of the WATCH websites, they will receive sign-in instructions to verify
their U-verse credentials, allowing them authenticated user access to their
favorite Disney Channel, Disney XD or Disney Junior programs on their device(s).
