AT&T's new 'WatchTV' skinny bundle is available — here's what you need to know
AT&T — the newly minted owner of Time Warner — today unveiled new wireless plans that include its new "WatchTV" skinny bundle. Customers who choose two new unlimited plans, called "AT&T Unlimited & More" and "AT&T Unlimited & More Premium" will be available next week and come with access to the WatchTV app, which includes 31 live channels.
Unlimited & More is $70 per line. (Or $160 for a four-line bundle.) Premium runs $80 a line (or $190 for four lines) and also includes the option to add either HBO, Cinemax, Showtime, Start, VRV or Pandora Premium or Amazon Music Unlimited to the mix. A standalone version of WatchTV will be available at some point for $15 a month.
The Premium plan also include 15GB of tethering from your phone, and a $15 monthly credit that can be applied to a subscription to DirecTV, DirecTV Now or U-Verse (all of which, of course, are owned by AT&T). The regular "Unlimited & More" plan offers a $15 credit for DirecTV Now only.
The channels included in the new WatchTV skinny bundle are:
- Animal Planet
- BBC America
- BBC World News
- Cartoon Network
- Food Network
- Hallmark Channel
- Hallmark Movies & Mysteries
- Investigation Discovery
- Lifetime Movies
- Sundance TV
- Tru TV
And coming "soon" after launch, AT&T says, will be BET, Comedy Central, MTV2, Nicktoons, Teen Nick and VH1.
