On Monday, AT&T celebrated some news and also a new art installation on their Atlanta AT&T campus. Created out of materials pulled from our recycling program, this tower is made of steel bars and old set-top boxes to spell out the word “NOW.” It stands 30-feet tall and weighs 25,000 lbs.
That was only part of their announcement that was carried on a live Monday afternoon webcast. Officials were online to officially announce the kickoff of new DirecTV Now – initially providing more than 100 live-streaming TV channels on any device at any time.
AT&T says your favorite TV networks and made-for-digital video content will be delivered with more choice and flexibility than ever.
This is rules-free TV for anyone in the U.S. who wants to stream shows and movies anytime, anywhere. For the more than 20 million U.S. households who have dropped cable or are flirting with cutting the cord, we’re now delivering video over a technology platform that will have multiple product capabilities, the first of which we’re unveiling today.
“We’re extending our entertainment portfolio for those who value premium content but also want more TV freedom suited for their lifestyle, whether watching at home or on their mobile devices. This is TV your way,” said John Stankey, CEO, AT&T Entertainment Group.
