It was confirmed by AT&T earlier this year that it’s going to soon launch a standalone TV streaming service under the DirecTV brand. The company confirmed recently that the service will be introduced in November and now we have a precise date. AT&T’s DirecTV Now standalone online TV streaming service is going to be unveiled on November 28th.
AT&T has sent invites for an event on November 28th in New York City. It’s going to provide all of the details about the new service at this event. While it’s unclear right now precisely when the service is going to be launched, at least we now know when AT&T is going to provide all of the information about it.
The company has confirmed two crucial bits of information about this service. DirecTV Now is going to cost $35 per month and it’s going to provide access to more than 100 channels. Since it’s a standalone streaming service no contracts are required. Subscribers can choose to end their subscription whenever they want without any hassles.
DirecTV Now’s $35 per month price point makes it a very competitive rival to the likes of PlayStation Vue which starts at $30 per month with 45 channels and Sling TV at $20 per month and even fewer channels.
The complete list of channels will likely be presented on November 28th aside from information about free trials and supported platforms.
