  • AT&T's DirecTV Now live TV service launches a DVR, upgrades the app with new features

If you don't want to pay for DVR service, DIRECTV Now is now offering 20 hours of DVR recordings for free.

According to Stephenson, subscriber acquisition costs will be one-fourth that of what it is witnessing right now with DirecTV satellite service. However, AT&T announced today that DTV Now customers can now watch on a third device, or third stream, for an additional $5 a month. As it turns out, AT&T will make expanded storage a paid upgrade. You can record an entire series or just one episode on nearly all of the channels on DIRECTV NOW. The programs can be viewed for up to 30 days after the initial recording.

DIRECTV Now's base programming package now costs just $35 a month, which most analysts believe is too little to generate a profit by itself. While Donovan did not go into pricing details, he said that AT&T would be able to tackle parts of the market it can not get into because of present satellite signal sight issues or residences with landlords who prohibit the installation of satellite dishes. Sling TV, another live streamer, offers from one to three, depending upon your plan.

The DIRECTV NOW app that includes the DVR functionality is available on via the DIRECTVNOW.com website (for Google Chrome and Safari browsers), Apple iOS 10+, Apple TV (4th generation & higher running tvOS 10+), Chromecast (2nd generation & higher for iOS) and Chromecast Built-in TV.

Local Channels on the Road.

TechCrunch said that DirecTV Now is also revamping its app across platforms, allowing users to prioritize their most popular programs. There's also a new interface that rearranges things to work a bit better, and you'll be able to keep watching your current show while browsing other available shows. The new versions promise a new layout that puts your most-watched channels and shows "front and center".

What's interesting about this new service is that it will provide all of the channels and perks of the full-fledged DirecTV satellite service, but will be much more affordable for customers.
