As AT&T gets closer to a launch date for it's new OTT service, DIRECTV Now, a few more details about the planned service are leaking out. CLICK HERE to read an article from Variety that includes a list of some of the channels they plan to offer.
A glance at that list shows a limited package of channels that will be offered for $35 a month. Clearly AT&T does not want to make their offering too compelling, lest they cannibalize their own DIRECTV satellite customers who are paying over $100 a month in many cases. It looks closer to the Sling Television service launched by Dish Network a couple of years ago, and with an overall less robust lineup than what Sony offers on their PlayStation Vue service. Expect the final channel list to look a bit different.
