Original Poster Notes:After testing this app; I found that most of the buttons were properly read by VoiceOver; however, listings were not read. In the browse TV tab; none of the channels were spoken. If you randomly selected one; you could hear what was on that unknown channel. Under the recordings tab; I had a similar experience where VoiceOver did not read the list of recorded or scheduled programming. After receiving sighted assistance to set up a U-verse receiver to be accessed by this app; I found that the remote control screen was completely unreadable using VoiceOver.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads most page elements.

Button Labeling: 

Most buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

There are some accessibility issues with this app, but it can still be used if you are willing to tolerate these issues and learn how to work around them.
