AT&T TV and its decommissioned AT&T TV Now sister officially become DirecTV Stream, a new unified service created from a deal between TPG Capital and AT&T for telecom giant streaming capabilities.
DirecTV began upgrading AT&T TV and AT&T TV Now customers on August 14th. On the home screens of the mobile apps for both services, notifying them that the change will officially take place on August 26, the spokesman confirmed Limit. DirectTV Stream is renewing the acquired AT&T services TPG Capital acquisition, which did not include HBO Max. (WarnerMedia with HBO Max is set merge into Discovery mid-2022.)
According to the company press release, “AT&T satellite, streaming or IP video customers automatically retain their video services, all wireless, Internet or HBO Max services and related discounts without action.”
AT&T TV launched last year as the company’s premium TV streaming experience. AT&T TV Now, the company’s lean streaming package, technically came AT&T TV earlier this year, and new customers could no longer sign up for Now. (Company said at the time However, AT&T TV Now customers can still use their accounts.)
If all this sounds unnecessarily confusing, that’s it. Fortunately, this is the last major brand change that AT & T’s current or future streaming customers will see for some time.
