AT&T is preparing to launch another new streaming service called AT&T TV later this summer. Not to be confused with AT&T TV Now, formerly DirecTV Now, the new offering will allow users to stream content to the AT&T TV app on mobile devices and through a box on TVs.
At least, from the sound of it, this is just a provider app like DirecTV Now and Spectrum, or a specialized version of Sling.
All these services are just going to ruin everything though, people are going to get burnt out on them and hopefully all these studios and businesses will realize not everybody is worthy of their own service.
At a Television Critics Association event in Beverly Hills, Showtime president Gary Levine unveiled the network’s new addition to the growing plethora of subscription streaming services, named Showtime Maxi+ Plus.
Even the industry is making fun of the never ending number of services ...
The upcoming launch of the Disney+ streaming service just got a bit sweeter sounding, with the disclosure of a price point for a package that adds in Hulu as well as ESPN+.
When Disney+ launches on Tuesday, Nov. 12 (for U.S. subscribers; and then rolled out to the rest of the world over two years), the new service’s ad-free content will cost $6.99/month (or $69.99/year).
But Disney CEO Bob Iger announced during a Tuesday earnings call that a bundle that combines the well-stocked Disney+ with Hulu’s ad-supported basic service ($5.99/month) as well as ESPN+ ($4.99/month) will total just $12.99/month.
The Streaming TV Apocalypse (#PeakStream?) is nigh — and consumers will be forced to make some tough choices.
In the coming months, behemoths such as Apple, Disney and WarnerMedia will enter the marketplace with services to take on the new Big 3 (Netflix, Hulu and Amazon). It’s unlikely that consumers will subscribe to all six, on top of a smattering of niche SVODs offered — so what’s your plan?
Apple has finally revealed key details about its upcoming video subscription service: The company used a press event for the introduction of the new iPhone Tuesday to announce that its Apple TV Plus service is going to launch in 100 countries on Nov. 1.
The service will be priced at $4.99 per month, and Apple is granting loyal customers a long introductory period: Anyone who buys a new Apple device will receive a whole year of free Apple TV Plus.
