According to Wapo AT&T is about to launch “DIRECTV Now” at $35 per month. Quoting from the article:
“AT&T’s offering will come with roughly 100 TV channels in a “fat bundle” of both on-demand and live programming. In other words, customers will have access to what could become a robust stand-in for cable TV, for $35 a month.”
The article goes on to explain how this is a better deal than PlayStation VUE or Dish’s SLING.
What’s intriguing is that CBS won’t join the lineup. That indicates some real disruption going on.
Fierce Cable and others report a major launch event in NYC on Nov 28th. Does doing it on Cyber Monday mean they are taking orders? Also from the same Fierce Cable piece – what do you mean it won’t be availbe on Roku?
And DirecTV NOW has this skeletal website that is only taking names.
I hope that this is the beginning of a streaming Cable price war.
