Today DIRECTV NOW updated their website to promote that some Viacom channels like Nick, MTV, BET, and Comedy Central will be coming to DIRECTV NOW next month.
DIRECTV NOW already had Viacom channels in its old grandfathered packages but when the new Plus and Max packages launched earlier this month they did not include Viacom channels. Now about a week after Viacom and AT&T struck a new deal DIRECTV NOW announced that Viacom channels are coming back for new subscribers.
We do not know which DIRECTV NOW packages will be getting the new channels. Will they all come to the $50 a month Plus package or will they be in the $70 a month Max package. For now, we will have to wait and see what AT&T says.
This was first spotted by Rich Greenfield from BTIG Research.
