Stream on with AT&T TV NOW, formerly DIRECTV NOW

DIRECTV NOW has a new name, AT&T TV NOW. For the most part, only the name has changed. How the service works, including channel lineups and features such as DVR, has largely stayed the same or improved.

From the start, DIRECTV NOW combined the convenience and savings of streaming services with the live viewing and DVR features of traditional TV. It’s perfect for cord cutters, apartment or dorm residents and anyone looking for a low-cost alternative to cable TV. The two main packages, PLUS and MAX, also include HBO® – a $15/mo. value on its own.

With AT&T TV NOW, you can:

  • Choose from seven packages ranging from 45 to 125+ channels
  • Stream live and recorded TV on up to three devices (two included, add a third starting at $5/mo.)
  • Record up to 20 hours of live TV and store it for up to 30 days
  • Add premium and international channels
  • Cancel anytime, no contract required

DIRECTV NOW never required bulky equipment or professional installation to get started, and the same is true with AT&T TV NOW. All you need is a compatible device, such as Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Google Chromecast or Roku and a screen to enjoy it on.

Were DIRECTV NOW plans different from AT&T TV NOW plans?

DIRECTV NOW offered seven TV streaming plans, including a plan centered on Spanish-language entertainment. These plans are now available with AT&T TV NOW, although channels and pricing may have changed since the initial DIRECTV NOW launch. All plans include your local channels and access to thousands of On Demand titles at no extra charge.

DIRECTV NOW frequently asked questions

DIRECTV NOW didn’t go anywhere, it just changed names to AT&T TV NOW. AT&T didn’t release a conclusive reason for the change, but it’s possible it was done in part to align their TV services: AT&T TV (a new TV streaming service with a box) and AT&T TV NOW.

They are. In August 2019, AT&T rebranded DIRECTV NOW as AT&T TV NOW. While the service has changed slightly since the rebrand, AT&T TV NOW offers the same channel packages, pricing and service features as DIRECTV NOW at this time.

Yes, AT&T transitioned existing DIRECTV NOW customers to the new AT&T TV NOW brand. It was intended to be a seamless transition, but some users may have needed to uninstall the DIRECTV NOW app and reinstall the new AT&T TV NOW app.
