DIRECTV NOW also confirmed that they added several new affiliates last week including Birmingham, AL (NBC); Oklahoma City, OK (CBS) and Tulsa, OK (CBS).

DIRECTV NOW also added POP to their lineup for subscribers who have the “Just Right” or above packages will now see POP appear in the channel guide nationwide.

For now, what we do not know the exact date the new DVR will be released, but all signs are pointing to AT&T missing their goal of a fall 2017 release. Now that should not be a surprise. As with all new technology bumps in the road happen and can delay software.
