How Do New AT&T TV Plans Compare to Hulu, YouTube TV, fuboTV, Sling & Other Live TV Streaming Services

Jason Gurwin

AT&T is shutting down AT&T TV NOW to new subscribers. Instead, the company is offering a new “no-contract” option for their AT&T TV service. Just like AT&T TV NOW, it includes no extra fees (Broadcast or RSN Fee) and you can use your own streaming device like Apple TV, Roku, or Fire TV.

The “no contract” plans start at $69.99 with their Entertainment Plan with 65+ channels. If you want regional sports including Fox Sports RSNs, their Choice Plan begins at $84.99 without contract ($64.99 with two-year contract), which also include HBO Max. They also have an Ultimate ($94.99 for 130 channels) and Premier ($139.99 for 140 channels).

If you do choose the no contract option though, the service will only include a 20 Hour Cloud DVR (500 Hours for an additional $10). All plans include local channels and at least 34 of the Top 35 Cable Channels from AMC, A+E, Discovery, Disney, NBCU, WarnerMedia, ViacomCBS, and Crown Media (Hallmark).

For those that want Fox Sports RSN’s – it’s your only option. There are no other Live TV Streaming Services that offer them currently. At $84.99, it is $5 more expensive than the old AT&T TV NOW Max plan – but comes with many more channels and will include NBA League Pass Premium ($250 value) free for a year. You can learn more about the differences between AT&T TV and AT&T TV NOW here.
