AT&T has this week launched a nationwide live TV service, known as AT&T TV, following a 13-market pilot, and designed for consumers to marry TV content with video streaming and apps. The service is powered by Android TV and includes live TV packages with preferred channels using one device and without having to switch inputs. Furthermore, the entire system can be controlled with voice over Google Assistant.

AT&T TV works with a compatible high-speed internet connection with customers able to bundle AT&T TV and 1 gigabit AT&T Internet for $39.99/month for video (and $39.99/month for internet for 12 months with a 24-month TV agreement where available). AT&T says that this deal amounts to getting triple the speed at no additional cost when bundling TV and internet services.

“Our customers told us what they want from their TV service and we built AT&T TV around that,” said Thaddeus Arroyo, CEO of AT&T Consumer. “AT&T TV is live TV made easy and when you add AT&T TV to our amazing 1 gigabit AT&T Internet you can’t go wrong.”

AT&T TV includes live TV packages, sports and access to 5,000+ apps from Google Play Store, such as HBO Max when it launches in May 2020. Customers will be able to switch between, say, a live basketball game, Netflix, YouTube or listen to music on Spotify without the need to use a different remote. As well as Google Assistant support, there is a cloud DVR with 500 hours of storage and an ability to streaming of shows from any location on a smartphone or tablet.

If this succeeds then AT&T's apparent desire to cannibalize their own subsidiary [Direct TV] will be nearly complete.

Yeah, I got a major decision once AT&T makes a decision to do away with DirecTV. I'm a big sports fan so my position is compromised a bit.
