DIRECTV NOW Starts Promoting a Third Stream on The Apple TV (If You Are Willing to Pay)




, , ,

This week AT&T updated their Apple TV app for DIRECTV NOW adding a new splash screen promoting the DVR and 3rd stream add-on.

Here is what the popup message that greats DIRECTV NOW beta users on the Apple TV says:

A few things that are interesting from that wording on this post. Pay attention to how the DVR is just listed as included. That seems to confirm what we reported before about DIRECTV NOW coming with a free 20 hours of DVR and more if you are willing to pay.

While the DVR is just listed as included, the third stream is clearly marked as an option. From the wording of this screen the third stream will not be included as part of the standard DIRECTV NOW subscription.

The questions now are how much will the third stream cost and what will the extra DVR storage costs. Although many would want the third stream included with the price of the subscription, it seems that DIRECTV NOW wants to keep the price down by offering these new features at an extra fee.

This splash screen was first seen on Roku players about a week ago. Now it looks like they are rolling it out to other devices as they get ready for an official launch.
