    Directv Now to become AT&T TV NOW

    Yeah but that was true with cable/sat all too often too. That next level always seemed to have that one channel you really wanted. ATT TV w/Entertainment is missing Sundance and IFC, next level up that has them is $17/month more. So I found out that the shows on IFC I actually care about are on...

    Directv Now to become AT&T TV NOW

    I would have gone with ATT TV Now if it had BBCA and AMC in the mix, but they don’t.

    Directv Now to become AT&T TV NOW

    I use my Harmony remote too and it is better than Apple’s horrid little thing. I use it to bring everything up and switching between devices but often use the Roku Ultra and Amazon’s remote for most interaction. I can use the Harmony Elite with my FireTV Cube so don’t understand why you can’t...

    Directv Now to become AT&T TV NOW

    For me, if the Roku had HBO Max app, it would be my go to box. As it is I use the AppleTV with its horrid remote.

    Directv Now to become AT&T TV NOW

    Primarily the use of thumbnails during fast forwarding. Only the ATT Osprey box and Roku do that. On AppleTV and FireTV you only have the time bar. Otherwise you can get used to the differences in just a short while.

    Directv Now to become AT&T TV NOW

    It works the same as ATT TV, the differences are channel selections, pricing and contract. IOW, it works quite well. I like the app on the Roku better than on other platforms.

    The YouTube TV Thread

    I watch about that much time, well actually I’m streaming about that much every day even if I’m not actively watching. With a probably about an hour a day average of 4K content. I hit 1.2TB of data usage pretty much every month which means I need the 200Mbps tier because of its 2TB limit. If I...

    It is a fair thing to include any additional costs due to streaming and that includes paying for either faster speed, or in many cases to get around data caps.

    AT&T TV

    People with sound systems that don’t have rear speakers most likely wouldn’t really notice that 5.1 is not there. I’m still impatiently waiting for them to fix this issue. The box is nice and will be nicer when/if Hulu & Prime come to it. The dedicated remote is a real plus.

    streaming services raising rates dropping channels

    While reruns are the majority of content these days, that is an anomaly because of the shutdowns. There would normally be much more original programming otherwise. Of course, reruns will continue to dominate the daytime programming. IMO, these days, because of so little original programming it...

    AT&T TV

    AT&T TV (and Now) has 5.1 audio on many but not all stations. Currently the box is not doing 5.1 because of a screwup in an update. I’m assuming that will be fixed soon as I was assured by an advanced tech I talked to when reporting the issue. The app does do 5.1 on Roku, FireTV and AppleTV by...

    The YouTube TV Thread

    Yes, AT&T TV is the only one with all the sports channels, and is very flexible with channels but of course with a price and a contract. Oddly missing the NFL channel. And yes, you can record as many shows at the same time as you like, but the storage limit is there and from other posts, is a...

    The YouTube TV Thread

    It should be noted that ATT TV effectively just raised their prices for new subscribers in the last few days. And other providers are also making channel additions that probably will up their costs also. In the end I think the difference in advertised cost of the different services will end up...

    That’s not the link for ATT TV Now. Atttvnow.com is the correct one. I wonder what whiz kid owns the attnow.com address?
