Days after buying Time Warner, AT&T launches new TV service

AT&T is introducing two new unlimited wireless plans in conjunction with a new online video service filled with channels from its just completed Time Warner acquisition.

Not to be confused with DirecTV Now (AT&T's existing streaming service), WatchTV will come bundled with AT&T's two newest unlimited wireless plans - AT&T Unlimited &More and AT&T Unlimited &More Premium - scheduled to launch next week. WatchTV also includes over 15,000 TV shows and movies on demand.

AT&T made the bid for Time Warner in a changing media landscape in which traditional media, broadband and telecom companies are adjusting to fierce competition from internet-based rivals like Amazon, Netflix and Google. The Department of Justice sued to block the Time Warner deal on anticompetition concerns, but a federal judge sided with AT&T.

Channels that AT&T (T) doesn't own, like BBC World News and Food Network, are on the service, too. The new service will offer access to premium channels like HBO and Showtime as well as access to over 30 additional channels, including Cartoon Network, TBC, CNN, and others. Viacom channels like VH1, Comedy Central and BET will be joining the mix soon after launch, we're told.

DirecTV Now starts at $35 a month for more than 60 channels, including sports channels, with additional channels available at higher prices. You can stream through the WatchTV app or on select browsers at no extra cost with our 2 latest unlimited wireless plans. The first of which is called "AT&T Unlimited &More", which is priced at $70 per month for a single line with autopay and paperless billing. They would need to upgrade to a new plan, though, to get WatchTV for free. The AT&T Unlimited Choice plan starts at $65 for one line, gets DVD-quality streaming video, possible data slowdowns at ant busy time, free HBO, and a $15 credit towards AT&T's DirecTV Now service.
