AT&T CFO Touts Plans for $15 a Month Skinny-Bundle Streaming Service

The other planned streaming service will offer a skinny programming bundle and “will be based on getting the Time Warner deal done,” according to [CFO John Stephens]. He reiterated previous comments that the offer, dubbed AT&T Watch, will cost “in the $15 range” per month, compared with DirecTV Now, which starts at $35. He described it as a “very low-end, very thin collection of content.” Providing some detail on how the service could look, Stephens said it would, for example, take some of Time Warner’s Turner cable networks and “bundle that with a small number of other channels.” – Georg Szalai, The Hollywood Reporter
