What channels are on AT&T TV Now?

Live TV streaming services all offer live streaming television channels, but not all of them offer the same channels. The omissions can be glaring; at various points, one or more major skinny bundles have been missing AMC, CBS, and ESPN, to name just a few big-name channels. That's part of why it's so important to consider a service's channel lineup when shopping around for a good live TV solution.

AT&T TV Now's lineup looks pretty darn good. Big-name channels abount, and AT&T's robust bundles are rounded out with lots of more minor networks (including a few that most viewers are unlikely to recognize). Let's take a look at some of the highlights:

  • ABC
  • CBS
  • CNN
  • Comedy Central
  • ESPN
  • Fox
  • Fox News
  • FS1
  • FX
  • HBO
  • NBC
  • NBCSN
  • Nickelodeon
  • TBS
  • TNT
  • And many more

AT&T TV Now offers a ton of channels — more than 125 of them, as of this writing — but which ones you'll get will depend on which bundle you opt for. To get a more detailed look at which channels are available with which bundles, you should take a look at our AT&T TV Now channel list.

What devices can I use to watch AT&T TV Now?

One of the best things about live TV streaming services is the fact that you can enjoy them on so many different devices and from anywhere with an internet or wireless connection. That freedom is a huge perk of cutting the cord. But your freedom will only be as great as the platform support offered by the service in question. How does AT&T TV Now measure up? Let's take a look at the platforms that AT&T TV Now offers apps for as of this writing.

Streaming platforms and devices

  • Apple TV
  • Chromecast
  • Fire TV
  • Roku

Mobile devices

  • Android
  • iOS

Other

  • In-browser app (Mac, Windows, and more)

AT&T TV Now works on several major connected TV platforms, which means that you can easily enjoy live TV on your favorite TV screen using a supported smart TV or HDMI-connected streaming device. Unfortunately, the platform support isn't completely comprehensive. AT&T TV Now doesn't have an app for the Android TV platform. And, as of this writing, AT&T TV Now's Roku channel is not being supported. That means that you won't be able to find the app in Roku's channel store. If you already have it, you can keep using it — just don't delete it, because you won't be able to get it back! Hopefully, the Roku issue is a temporary one. Roku and AT&T are reportedly wrangling over the terms of their next deal as of this writing.

AT&T TV Now also works on plenty of mobile devices, which makes it easy to enjoy live TV on AT&T TV Now on the go.

How much does AT&T TV Now cost?

AT&T TV Now offers several bundles at different price points. The offerings tend to be a bit larger than is typical for so-called “skinny bundles” — you shouldn't expect anything all that “skinny” from AT&T TV Now. That means that AT&T TV Now's prices trend a bit higher than the competition's, too, but that won't bother customers who are looking for robust solutions with lots of channels on board — on a per-channel basis, AT&T's live streaming service is a great deal.

  • Plus (45+ channels): $65 per month
  • Max (60+ channels): $80 per month
  • Entertainment (65+ channels): $93 per month
  • Choice (85+ channels): $110 per month
  • Xtra (105+ channels): $124 per month
  • Ultimate (125+ channels): $135 per month
  • Optimo Más (90+ channels): $86 per month

Take a close look at our AT&T TV Now channel list for more information on which channels are included in these bundles. It's important to know (for example) that Plus includes a subscription to AT&T-owned HBO. HBO on its own costs $15 a month, so that goes a long way toward making the price of Plus look more appealing.

AT&T TV Now contracts

AT&T TV Now and the rest of the live TV streaming gang are supposed to be offering a better deal than pricey and outdated cable, and one of the worst things about cable is that restrictive contract. That begs the question: How does AT&T TV Now's contract work?

That means that you can cancel at any time. If you do choose to cancel, you'll lose access to AT&T TV Now at the end of the current “pay period.” In other words, if you cancel a day after you pay for the next month of service, you'll have service until the end of the month. The drawback, of course, is that you won't get that month's payment back. If you do decide to cancel AT&T TV Now, you should do so before the next recurring charge hits.

If you cancel during AT&T TV Now's free trial period, your cancellation will take effect immediately and you won't be charged anything at all.
