First of New Offers to Come Following AT&T and Time Warner Merger New "Unlimited &MoreSM Premium" Customers Will Receive a Choice of Another Entertainment Service Like HBO®, Amazon Music, Pandora Premium and More
DALLAS, June 21, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- We were the first wireless provider to pair entertainment and unlimited data. That's because unlimited is pretty limited without entertainment. So now we're taking it even further to give you more for your thing.
Days after closing the AT&T*-Time Warner merger, we're rolling out our newest video offering called WatchTV, available on the nation's best network for streaming video.i You can stream through the WatchTV app or on select browsers at no additional cost with our two latest unlimited wireless plans. The plans — AT&T Unlimited &MoreSM and AT&T Unlimited &MoreSM Premiumii — are scheduled to launch next week.
WatchTV features 30+ live channels, will be compatible on virtually every current smartphone, tablet, or web browser, and certain streaming devices. In addition to live programming, WatchTV includes over 15,000 TV shows and movies on demand.
More for Your Thing
With &More Premium, you'll also have the option to add one of several premium services for no extra charge. Premium services include HBO®, Cinemax, SHOWTIME® or STARZ® as well as music streaming services like Amazon Music Unlimited and Pandora Premium. If you're an anime/tech/gaming fan, you can choose VRV as your option.
In addition to that, you'll get 15GB of high-speed tethering, access to high definition video, and a $15 monthly credit toward DIRECTV, DIRECTV NOW or U-verse TViii for those customers wanting even more great entertainment.
"We were the first wireless provider to bring entertainment and unlimited data together, and, once again, we're redefining what that means," said David Christopher, president, AT&T Mobility and Entertainment. "This is no longer about including one channel or service with your wireless plan, but an incredible lineup of content that delivers more of what you care about – over 30 live TV channels and more than 15,000 TV shows and movies on demand, as well as premium movie channels, music streaming with more to come!"
