Learn About AT&T TV
What is AT&T TV? Before we simply spell out how this TV service is defined, let us step back into the meaning of “watching TV” expression.
Watching TV has always been a straightforward action. Some programming is delivered to a device that has a screen on which you watch news, movies, or basketball games.
AT&T TVThinking back, a single TV box with a black and white screen may come onto our mind. It’s receiving TV signals over an antenna or cable. We may or may not have a remote control.
Fast forward to the year 2020, and here we are with AT&T TV service that comes on top of other TV services like DIRECTV.
Not just that it comes after all of these, but it really sounds and looks like a result of all of the experiences AT&T had as a provider of all of them. It crowned its experience with this all-in-one entertainment solution.
So, what is AT&T TV?
AT&T TV is an Internet-based advanced TV service that uses a single device to combine Live TV, Cloud-based DVR storage, a huge On-Demand programming library, access to 5000+ TV and music apps, and voice control.
Wait, wait, wait… Let’s break this definition down a bit.
Live TV programming that you would have with any of the ordinary TV subscriptions. Movies, sports, shows, news, weather, local channels.
On-Demand Programming Library
Access to up to 55,000 on-demand titles to watch whenever you want.
Cloud-Based DVR Storage
Record up to 500 hours of shows which are kept for up to 90 days. Watch on any of your devices, not just the TV. Record unlimited shows simultaneously.
5000+ TV and Music Apps
Access any of the entertainment apps at Google Play™ Store. AT&T TV devices comes preloaded with such as Netflix and Pandora.
Use your voice instead of a remote-control device. Using voice remote with the built-in Google Assistant lets you exercise voice commands to find your favorite movies and shows, switch channels, or turn close captioning on and off. Check the traffic, weather, stocks, and news, or simply… dim the lights before your favorite game starts if you “employ” a smart home solution.
So, as we can see, AT&T TV has a lot to offer, but that is not all.
