These days, we’re starting to see more companies get into the subscription business. This is because the subscription business is a lot more sustainable compared to ala carte purchases, whether it be for games, music, movies, and so on. In fact, a report from The Wall Street Journal has revealed that AT&T could be considering getting into the business of video streaming.
According to the report, it seems that carrier is mulling launching their own video streaming bundle in which it will bundle a variety of services into one. This includes the likes of HBO, Cinemax, and also a bunch of other films and TV shows by Warner Bros. It will also reportedly be more expensive than the competition at $16 a month, but considering that it will offer up a variety of services, perhaps it might be worth it for some.
Also, when you consider the fact that HBO Go is priced at $14.99 a month, for customers to fork out an extra couple of bucks to gain access to an even wider selection doesn’t seem too outrageous. However, at the same time there are streaming services offered by the likes of Netflix and Hulu that are cheaper, and let’s not forget that Disney+ is also launching at the end of the year.
In any case, take it with a grain of salt for now, but the report claims that the service is expected to launch in March 2020, so we’ll just have to wait and see.
