AT&T TV Streaming Service/Uverse & DirecTV replacement

AT&T appears to be moving full steam ahead with their streaming services to get prices more in line with YouTube.TV, Hulu Live and Sling. This will also be replacing Uverse and DirecTV as their primary TV product moving forward and runs off a dedicated Android device:

Apparently this is different from AT&T TV Now (formerly DirecTV Now), channels: https://www.att.com/channels/att-tv/

Their solution to the RSN problem is the same as it used to be - a $8.49 upcharge on top of the actual price as a tax/fee.

No thanks! 24 month commitment, locked to AT&T's hardware... As a replacement for DirecTV maybe but competing with YouTube TV/Hulu/Sling... it's DOA.

Agreed. The only aspect that's semi-appealing is that as a Fiber customer I'd get it for $40 and it has free HBO Max, but contracts that long are played out. But, they do also have every channel available ... at a cost.

Totally happy with Hulu and their services - at least for now. But it sounds like the AT&T struggle continues. An this new service won't help them.

Can't see it replacing DirecTV should DirecTV merge with Dish Network then I don't know what would happen.

It doesn’t have Sunday Ticket and it doesn’t have many RSNs.

If you’re on a tight budget for TV, this is not for you.

How much longer does DirecTV have Sunday Ticket? One more season?

Re: AT&T TV Streaming Service/Uverse & DirecTV replacement

Since Spectrum SportsNet LA and Spectrum SportsNet are scheduled to go to AT&T TV and Now, I might strongly consider switching from regular DirecTV to them. Both of those services will already save me money on what I'm paying now.

I have some promos that will expire early this summer and I'll re-evaluate then. I just make sure to look at both channel lineups and see if they offer everything I watch on a regular basis.

Yeah they are already there. SSNLA is on 690. SSN is 691

I'm just saying what's holding me back from switching to a live internet TV service was mainly SSN. It's mainly to save me some money from the what DirecTV charges.

I'll lose some channels, but if it saves me some cash I might do it.
