AT&T’s new Watch TV service is fully detailed

AT&T has been in the news a lot and last week the carrier fully unveiled its new Watch TV video streaming service. We heard about the service a few weeks ago in a prior report, but now we have a lot more information regarding what to make of it.

Like the other three US carriers, AT&T has expressed a lot of interest in video services. The carrier already has a TV service of its own thanks to its acquisition of DirecTV, and now Time Warner has been purchased for $85 billion to help with yet another service. Watch TV brings a lot under one roof and is AT&T’s new video service available starting this week.

Watch TV will exist alongside DirecTV Now. But unlike DirecTV Now, which has a ton of options and higher monthly price tag, Watch TV will be more compelling for those on a budget, having fewer channels and streaming options, even less than YouTube TV. AT&T Watch costs $15 per month, but is free for some customers of AT&T’s new unlimited data plans. In other words, you don’t need to be an AT&T subscriber to have Watch TV.

If you switch to an AT&T unlimited plan or sign up for the first time, you’ll receive perks which may include Watch TV. AT&T will make more information available soon regarding the deals and stance of HBO, and has laid out some details at the source link. The competition has been put on notice. What are your thoughts?
