AT&T's new plans replace its previous plans, though customers can remain on the plan they now have.
"We were the first wireless provider to bring entertainment and unlimited data together, and, once again, we're redefining what that means", David Christopher, president of AT&T Mobility and Entertainment, said in a statement. The AT&T Unlimited Choice plan starts at $65 for one line, gets DVD-quality streaming video, possible data slowdowns at ant busy time, free HBO, and a $15 credit towards AT&T's DirecTV Now service.
AT&T is introducing two new unlimited wireless plans in conjunction with a new online video service filled with channels from its just completed Time Warner acquisition.
The No. 2 U.S. wireless carrier is putting to use Time Warner's stable of content, including TV channels like TBS and CNN, to drive sales of the wireless plans at a time when carriers have struggled to find growth. You can also purchase a $4-a-month add-on pack with nine additional channels.
AT&T - the newly minted owner of Time Warner - today unveiled new wireless plans that include its new "WatchTV" skinny bundle. WatchTV will also include more than 15,000 TV shows and movies on demand. The service will cost less than a tradition cable or satellite service, the company said, because AT&T doesn't have to utilize service trucks traveling to customers' homes to install and fix home settop boxes or dishes.
AT&T says that this new WatchTV service will be available to watch on just about every mobile device and that it will also be available on "select" streaming set-top boxes in the future, too. It isn't clear when WatchTV will be available for anyone to sign up.
