What is AT&T TV NOW?

AT&T began to compete in the cord-cutting market only in 2016 when it launched its DirectTV NOW service. Initially, the service consisted of differently priced subscription plans but suffered from a loss of more than 1 million customers after subsequent rate hikes.

Eventually, the company reduced the plan options to only two by offering 45 channels for $50 a month and 60 channels for $70.

In the middle of 2019, the company decided to re-brand its offering to AT&T TV NOW and added other subscription plans to capture a more discerning viewer market. Aside from this, the company also offers other live TV streaming services

AT&T TV NOW

It is compatible with most popular devices such as the Amazon Firestick, which is perfect for cord-cutters. Overall, AT&T TV NOW is a great choice for cord-cutters who want to watch sports, movies, news, and children’s programming at a very competitive monthly fee.

It comes free for AT&T Unlimited & More plan subscribers. For those who aren’t subscribed yet, it may delight first-time cord-cutters because it is the cheapest non-discounted option available. It doesn’t come with DVR and doesn’t support multiple streaming on different devices though.

It requires a contract plus a set-top box and is available only in some cities in California, Florida, Kansas, Minnesota, Montana, New York, Texas, and Washington.

AT&T TV NOW Channel Line Up

Channel availability depends on the type of subscription plan. The Plus plan has 45+ channels while the Max plan offers 60+ channels plus wider sports coverage. HBO, which is a paid add-on channel in most IPTV services, is already included in all plans.

AT&T TV NOW claims that it offers new channels that are not covered by its competitors. These include Comedy Central, BET, Nickelodeon, Nick Jr., MTV, and VH1.

You can pay more for extra channels on its premium network lineup such as Cinemax ($11 but is already included on the Max plan), SHOWTIME ($11), STARZ ($11), Epix ($6), and its Movies Extra Pack ($5).
