AT&T held a high profile event recently in order to formally introduce DirecTV Now, which will be going live on Wednesday November 30th with a price of $35 a month for access to 60 channels. The DirecTV Now service will be made available to view on a wide range of connected devices and platforms, most especially mobile devices like smartphones and tablets.
With the official unveiling of its newest feature, Stream Saver, it appears that the second biggest wireless carrier in America is looking to allow its subscribers to reduce their data consumption by watching video content in 480p on mobile devices.
Even though it is just a startup, Gfycat recently managed to raise a remarkable $10 million in funding for its user generated content platform, which basically allows users to create audio-less, looping animated images and video content. And now, the company is launching its first ever mobile app. The Gfycat mobile app is designed specifically to be used for iMessage.
AT&T has recently announced that the pricing for its DirecTV Now online video service is now at only $35 per month. A little more than a month ago, we reported that DirecTV Now will be debuting before the start of 2017, and many industry watchers fully expect the service to launch by November. The $35 a month pricing will cover the cost of the video streaming, as well as the 100 channels of programming.
As revealed by Randall Stephenson, the chief executive officer of AT&T, the major US wireless carrier is planning to officially launch DirecTV Now, its online video streaming service, some time in the last quarter of 2016. He also took the opportunity to hint that the feature will come with over a hundred premium channels and aggressive price points.
T-Mobile's Binge On service is on a roll right now. The video streaming feature has recently added 16 new video content providers, which means that as of latest count, the service now has over a hundred partners delivering zero rated video content to subscribers of the third biggest wireless carrier in the United States.
During this year’s VidCon (an event focusing on the online video market) held in the city of Anaheim, California, YouTube took the opportunity to reveal that it has added a live streaming feature to its mobile app. It appears that live streaming features have become the rage right now, with Facebook touting its Live feature while Twitter has its Periscope, and YouTube would do well to join in on the program.
Here we go again. T-Mobile’s Binge On feature has once again found itself the target of a particular group criticizing its service. According to a team of researchers from the Northeastern University from Boston, Massachusetts, not only does the Binge On service break net neutrality rules set by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), it also apparently delivers video content of inferior quality compared to what T-Mobile has promised.
