It looks as though AT&T is rushing to finish up some final deals as they get ready for launch. Now it seems DirecTV Now has deals with almost every major provider except CBS.
Rumor is DirecTV Now will have locals in many markets but will only have access to Fox, NBC, and ABC—and not in all markets.
This information comes from MoffettNathanson Analyst Craig Moffett: DirecTV Now has reached agreements with all major content suppliers except CBS Corp.
“There is some contention over whether or not a Fox agreement has been reached—some reports citing AT&T suggest that it has; Fox itself said that it had not formally reached an agreement,” Moffett added in a report they published late last week.
We do know that there will be multiple packages starting at $35; however, we do not know what package will offer what channels. Reports are that Fox and NBC will be in the $35 package but ABC is likely to be in a higher-priced bundle.
For now all we have are rumors and reports from people close to the negotiations. Hopefully in the next few days we will have a full and detailed report.
