AT&T TV combines the best of over-the-top (OTT) and traditional TV services for an all-new streaming experience. Customers can enjoy the value and versatility of OTT service, plus the picture quality, equipment and channel variety you’d expect from a cable or satellite TV service.
Why choose AT&T TV?

Things to consider

Two-year contract required – Be sure you’re ready to make a commitment if you want to get AT&T TV. Early termination fee (ETF) is $15/mo. for each month remaining on your contract.
Lacking in sports – You’ll only find regional sports networks (RSNs) in AT&T TV’s higher-priced plans. Plus, you’ll pay up to $8.49/mo. extra for a Regional Sports fee.
