AT&T TV is Now Available in 10 Test Markets Starting At $59.99 For ~70 Channels

AT&T has officially launched their streaming version of DirecTV, which is named AT&T TV. Customers in 10 markets can now sign-up for the service: Orange County, CA, Riverside, CA, West Palm Beach, CA, Topeka, KS, Wichita, KS, St. Louis, MO Springfield, MO, Corpus Christi, TX, El Paso TX, & Odessa, TX.

The service has four plans which start at $59.99 with a two-year contract:

  • Entertainment: $59.99 w/ 70 channels
  • Choice: $64.99 w/ 90 channels
  • Xtra: $74.99 w/ 120 channels
  • Ultimate: $79.99 w/ 125 channels

After your first year though, the pricing goes up to $93 (Entertainment), $110 (Choice), $124 (Xtra), and $135 (Ultimate) a month. For Choice, Xtra, and Ultimate, there is an additional $8.49 RSN Fee.

The service is powered by their custom Android TV streaming media player, which they had previously been testing with DIRECTV NOW.

Unlike DIRECTV NOW, which is in the process of being rebranded to AT&T TV NOW, the service includes a 500 Hour DVR (vs. 20 Hours) and 3 simultaneous streams (vs. 2 streams). While the DVR is much larger than that on DIRECTV NOW, the recording will only last for 90 days. Since the service will include a bigger bundle of channels, there will be over 55,000 on-demand titles at launch. You will also able to install other apps from Google Play like Netflix and Pandora and use it on the streaming box.
