AT&T announced earlier this month that it’s going to launch a standalone internet TV streaming of its own under the DirecTV brand. If you’ve been out of the loop, the telecommunications giant acquired DirecTV for over $48 billion not too long ago. The company hasn’t revealed everything about this service called DirecTV Now just yet, but AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson has revealed that DirecTV Now will be released next month.

The revelation was made by the CEO as part of a discussion on AT&T’s impending acquisition of Time Warner. CEO Randall Stephenson confirmed that DirecTV Now is going to be launched in November and that it’s going to be priced “radically lower” than its competitors.

Competitors include the likes of Sling TV and PlayStation Vue, not to mention HBO Now, but the latter would soon be an AT&T property anyway provided that regulators don’t throw a spanner in the works or Time Warner doesn’t receive a competing bid. Apple is believed to be keeping an eye on what’s cooking between AT&T and Time Warner.

It’s not known right now which channels and networks are going to be onboard when DirecTV Now is launched next month. We don’t even have an exact date yet so we’ll have to wait for the company to reveal more information before we can be sure if it’s worth subscribing to DirecTV Now over Sling TV and PlayStation Vue.
