AT&T is rebranding DirecTV Now as AT&T Now as the satellite brand it acquired in 2015 loses currency in the streaming era.
The telecom giant started notifying customers Tuesday morning of the change.
According to a company website, current DirecTV Now customers won’t need to do anything as the change takes effect.
Is DirecTV now getting rid of channels?
But with AT&T now marketing its two new DirecTV Now packages, we have a more comprehensive view of what channels aren’t coming back. The virtual MVPD is now offering 47 individual networks in its base tier, which it now calls “Plus.” AT&T and Viacom ended a brief carriage renewal impasse earlier this week.
Is DirecTV now losing customers?
AT&T’s streaming service, DirecTV Now, has lost nearly 20 percent of its subscribers in the last 6 months. On Wednesday, the company said DirecTV Now had lost 83,000 subscribers since January, leaving the service with roughly 1.5 million customers — almost precisely the number it had this time last year.
Do I get DirecTV now if I have directv?
Yes it does, but it isn’t DirecTV Now. If you have DirecTV, then you get whatever services (including streaming using a DirecTV app) your DirecTV subscription gives you. DirecTV Now is a completely unrelated service that (in a bad decision, in my opinion) ATT chose to brand with the DirecTV name.
What channels do I get with DirecTV now?
DIRECTV NOW offers the following sports channels:
- ESPN News.
- FOX Sports (FS1)
- FOX Sports 2 (FS2)
- MLB Network.
