  • Just Right – 80+ channels
  • Go Big – 100+ channels
  • Gotta Have It – 120+ channels

Chromecast is not the only support that DIRECTV NOW is adding. Responded to a frequent customer request for a recording option by coming up with a plan for a DVR beta. A select group of existing customers have gotten access to the feature while the company tests out the new feature.

The company is also working hard to make improvements on existing features by asking for customer input. AT&T has been looking for feedback about buffering via phone interviews and participants for an in depth study at their offices in El Segundo. This feedback should lead to more improvements and potentially more user-friendly features in the future.
