US telecom giants AT&T have today announced that customers of U-verse and DIRECTV can now stream content using the updated DIRECTV app without it using your AT&T Wireless data allowence.
According to the press release:
The updated DIRECTV App gives you access to your live and recorded programming whether away from the living room in your home or on the go. That’s right: virtually anything you typically watch on your DIRECTV service at home will now be available anywhere you have either a mobile or Wi-Fi internet connection. That includes shows on live channels – even locals – as well as just about all of your DVR recorded programs. You can also download most of your DVR recordings to your device to watch offline – perfect for long plane flights.
Even better, you can stream video via your DIRECTV or U-verse App without using your mobile data when you’re on the go with Data Free TV on the AT&T mobile wireless network. It’s easy and automatic after registering and it doesn’t count against your AT&T mobile data allotment.
“Our customers want to take their TVs with them, and our new DIRECTV App allows just that,” said David Christopher, CMO, AT&T Entertainment Group. “You can get the content you want, when you want it…. your living room channels and your recorded content with you, anywhere you go.”
