As expected, the streaming video service is available at no additional cost with the plans, set to debut next week. It will be $15/month as a stand-alone service, with premium add-ons costing extra.
Full details will come at launch, but "AT&T Unlimited &More" and "AT&T Unlimited &More Premium" will each come with a $15 monthly credit toward DirecTV Now. The premium plan will also allow for a no-cost premium video service add-on, for that $15 credit to be applied to DirecTV or U-verse TV, and 15 GB of high-speed tethering along with high-definition video.
As planned, WatchTV will have more than 30 live channels and more than 15,000 shows/movies on demand -- but no ESPN, pro league channels or regional sports nets, and no local broadcast.
