AT&T launches DirecTV Now, a streaming channel service

29 Nov 2016 | Rasmus Larsen |

AT&T’s new ‘Direct Now’ streaming service starts at $35 dollars per month. It will be available starting tomorrow on Apple TV, Chromecast, FireTV, and mobile devices. Roku support will arrive in Q1 2017.

DirecTV Now streaming

If you still prefer the traditional TV channel experience but want some of the flexibility that streaming technology has to offer, DirecTV Now is an alternative to PlayStation Vue and Sling TV.

DirecTV Now starts at $35/mo for 60 channels and ends at $70/mo for the full 120+ channels package. In terms of programming the usual channels are available, excluding CBS, Showtime, and NFL Sunday Ticket. Two simultaneous streaming can be watched at any time.

HBO’s catalog can be added for just $5/mo, which is significantly cheaper than the stand-alone HBO Now service.

Packages:
  • Live a Little: $35 / month (60+ channels)
  • Just Right: $50 / month (80+ channels)
  • Go Big: $60 / month (100+ channels)
  • Gotta Have It: $70 / month (120+ channels)

    Customers who sign up for three months will receive a free Apple TV box. Next year, a cloud DVR feature will be added.

    DirecTV Now launches in the US tomorrow on Wednesday November 30. A free 7-day trial period is available.
