What is DirecTV Now? How’s it different from AT&T TV Now?
DirecTV Now is the old name, and AT&T TV Now is the new name. Both refer to the same service: an online-only streaming platform that allows subscribers to access live and on-demand programming over the internet for a monthly fee. It offers popular channels like HBO, Showtime, and ESPN, plus exclusive sports packages like NFL Sunday Ticket.
It’s meant for people who cannot install a satellite dish or cord-cutters who simply don’t want the hassle of a long-term satellite or cable contract.
How is DirecTV Now different from plain old DirecTV?
DirecTV is still the name of AT&T’s traditional satellite TV service. You do not need to install DirecTV in order to get DirecTV Now/AT&T TV Now. However, if you are already a DirecTV satellite subscriber, online streaming is available through that service at no extra charge.
Both forms of DirecTV—the satellite-based and online-only Now versions—offer a cloud DVR service and access to local channels in major markets.
