The service will have over 100 channels and includes unlimited mobile data on AT&T when using the service. DirecTV Now significantly undercuts rival services and is certainly cheaper than similar cable or satellite alternatives. For example, Sony's Vue service is $55 for 100 channels and Dish's Sling TV has just 50 channels for $40.
It is unclear what the channel catalog will look like, but AT&T said there will be channels from Time Warner, NBCUniversal, Fox and Disney.
AT&T recently bid $85 billion for Time Warner Inc., looking to create a massive ecosystem of wireless, broadband, satellite and media properties.
