AT&T signs up HBO for its DirecTV Now streaming service

Disney recently announced that its channels (including ESPN and ABC Television Network) would be a part of the subscription packages, and tonight AT&T announced it will offer HBO & Cinemax as well. The deal is part of a renewal of HBO’s agreement for the DIRECTV and AT&T U-verse services, which AT&T is calling historic because it is an “all-platform” deal covering both traditional and streaming options. There’s still no word on exactly how much DirecTV Now or DirecTV Mobile will cost[.] – Richard Lawler, Engadget
