DirecTV Now Has 1 Million Reasons to Celebrate 1 Year of Service

EL SEGUNDO, Calif.(05 Dec 2017)

The party has started and over 1 million of you have joined. The AT&T over-the-top (OTT) streaming service, DirecTV Now, has officially surpassed 1 million subscribers while celebrating our first year.

We listened when customers said they wanted more flexible TV options. And DirecTV Now set out to bring TV lovers a new way to experience their favorite shows virtually anywhere at a great price.

"This milestone is an incredible testament to the thousands of hours many people spent working to bring this product online and continually improving it during the past year," said David Christopher, president, AT&T Entertainment Group. "We're thrilled so many customers have come to love DirecTV Now and can't wait to bring them a host of new features in 2018."

"To reach 1 million subscribers is an important benchmark for any OTT video service, but to go from zero to 1 million subscribers so quickly is quite an achievement," said Brett Sappington, senior director of Research, Parks Associates.

Features to come
