This morning AT&T TV officially rolled out in 10 markets and with this change, DIRECTV NOW was rebranded to AT&T TV NOW. Now the DIRECTV NOW app on the Apple TV, Fire TV, Android, and iOS have been updated to AT&T TV NOW. The Roku Channel for DIRECTV NOW still has not been updated.

What’s the Difference Between AT&T TV and AT&T TV NOW?
AT&T TV NOW will be the new version of DIRECTV NOW. If you’re currently subscribed to DIRECTV NOW, your app should automatically update to ATT&T NOW when the new version launches. You’ll get 20 hours of Cloud DVR storage with this service.
AT&T TV is an entirely new streaming service. AT&T TV will offer both live and on-demand content. The streaming service is coming soon to select cities, according to the new website. With AT&T TV, you’ll get 500 hours of Cloud DVR storage.
Both of these two streaming services will be available through the AT&T TV app. The content and features you’ll see will depend on which of the services you’ve subscribed to. (Note: AT&T employees have told Cord Cutters News that AT&T TV will require at least one AT&T TV set-top box.)
We are not yet sure exactly what will be different about these two streaming services, other than the points mentioned above.
