What is AT&T TV? Here's what we know now

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.

Disney+/Hulu/ESPN+ Bundle to Cost $12.99/Month — But There's a Catch

https://tvline.com/2019/08/06/disney-plus-hulu-bundle-pricing/

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.

Yep, still, not gonna pay for a streaming service that makes me watch ads. You get to do one or the other, not both.

TV Streaming Service Guide: Disney+, Netflix, Apple TV+, Hulu and 21 Other Options

https://tvline.com/2019/08/30/streaming-tv-guide-shows-amazon-apple-netflix-disney-plus-hulu-hbo-max/

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?

... my head hurts

Could be that hulu's shows start showing up on Disney+ as well. Disney is a majority holder of Hulu.

I'll probably consider Disney+ when it became available, at least for some trial period. And HBO Max looks decent enough on paper.

Otherwise it's Netflix+Prime for me as well :)

Netflix is really the only option for me here. Besides HBO (which is not available anymore here), other streaming devices simply do not offer as much as netflix does that really interests me.
