    “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,” said John Stankey, CEO, AT&T Entertainment Group. “This is TV your way. Our new customer-centric offers show that mobility and entertainment are better together.”

    The services are zero-rated for AT&T Mobility customers.

    DIRECTV NOW offers between 60 and 120 live TV channels in four tiers, which range from $35 to $70 per month. Fans of HBO and Cinemax can add these channels for just $5 additional each per month.

Fullscreen will be included at no charge for one year with eligible new and existing wireless plans with messaging service
