AT&T Will Share Details About Their Upcoming DirecTV Now Television Streaming Service on Nov. 28

Today, AT&T announced they will hold an invitation-only DirecTV Now event in New York City on Monday, November 28th. The communications company is expected to share all the details about its upcoming $35 per month 100 channel service during the event.

AT&T Will Share Details About Their Upcoming DirecTV Now Television Streaming Service on Nov. 28

AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson originally announced the new service in late September, saying it would start at $35 per month, and would include over 100 channels. Premium channels, such as HBO, Starz, and Showtime will be available for an additional fee.

Variety:

The DirecTV Now documents also revealed that many networks will support a 72-hour “catch-up window” to let users watch shows from the past three days; ESPN is among the networks excluded from the replay feature but customers can log in to WatchESPN to view select past programming. DirecTV Now also will include a video-on-demand library of up to 14,000 titles. (AT&T has declined to comment.)

While the price for DirecTV Now looks to be much lower than competing services, such as the offerings from Sling and PlayStation Vue, the service will likely be limited to a single stream per account, so no sharing with friends or family.

In addition to a low price, AT&T will reportedly sweeten the deal for subscribers by offering a free Amazon Fire TV Stick to customers who sign up for one month, and a free Apple TV to those who commit to three months of the DirecTV Now service. Both deals are excellent, as the amount you’ll be paying out is less than what the free device costs, and you’re getting the streaming television service too.

It isn’t known whether the new streaming service will launch immediately following the event, or later in the year. Hopefully all of those details will be announced at the November 28 shindig. We’ll be sure to share the details with you as we learn them.
