AT&T already has a standalone online TV streaming service called DirecTV and today it’s launching another one merely days after completing its acquisition of Time Warner. The new service is called WatchTV and it has been launched at an aggressive price point of $15 per month. The service comes with 31 channels at launch and will get 6 networks from Viacom in the near future, according to AT&T.

WatchTV obviously includes many Time Warner networks such as Cartoon Network, CNN, TBS, TCM, and TNT. Other networks such as HGTV and AMC are included as well. Aside from the 30+ live channels that the service offers, it also includes more than 15,000 TV shows and movies on-demand.

The service will be available through the WatchTV app free for subscribers on its AT&T Unlimited &More and AT&T Unlimited &More Premium plans. It’s also going to be available on its own for $15 per month which is cheaper than the $20 per month that Dish charges for Sling TV.

WatchTV is going to be “compatible on virtually every current smartphone, tablet, or web browser,” AT&T says, adding that it will also be compatible with some streaming devices. It hasn’t specified those devices as yet but will likely do so in the coming days.
