AT&T TV NOW Supported Devices

AT&T TV NOW has fairly good device coverage:

  • TV streaming media players: Apple TV (4th gen and up, 5th gen and up for 4K), Amazon Fire TV (2nd gen and up, 1st gen for Cube), Chromecast (2nd gen and up), Roku (most models).

AT&T TV NOW Simultaneous Streams

Like Sling TV, AT&T TV NOW is somewhat stingy when it comes to account sharing. The default simultaneous stream limit is two screens. That means that you can let one friend or family member watch TV with you though your account at the same time as you. If you need more flexibility, you can get a $5/month simultaneous stream upgrade that expands that limit to three devices. 

To learn more about AT&T TV NOW’s streaming policy, click here.

AT&T TV NOW DVR

When AT&T TV NOW first came out, it lacked a DVR. A recent upgrade gave AT&T TV NOW subscribers the ability to record up to 20 hours of TV programming. While it is nice that AT&T decided against forcing their users to pay to get the DVR, the fact that there are no upgrades that give you more recording time is somewhat limiting.

AT&T TV NOW On-Demand Library

AT&T TV NOW has a bigger on-demand catalog than both Sling TV and fuboTV. According to the AT&T TV NOW website, the streaming service has over 40,000 titles. However, there is a downside to consider: commercials. You’ll see an ad every 15 minutes when you watch on-demand content through AT&T TV NOW. There are no paid upgrades that get rid of those ads, either.

MLB.TV

MLB.TV provides a great way to watch game replays, but its strict blackout policy may be too restrictive for some. Source: MLB.TV

If you don’t usually watch TV and all you want to do is make sure you can still catch San Francisco Giants games after you cut the cord, you may want to consider subscribing to MLB.TV. A single-team subscription to the service only costs $92 and gives you complete access to all regular season games.

Plans and coverage

As mentioned above, a single-team subscription to MLB.TV costs $92. If you want access to all the regular season games, you can upgrade to the $119 All Teams plan. If you don’t want to pay the full All Teams price up front, you can opt to pay $25 per month instead.

Blackout rules

One of the biggest downsides of the MLB.TV app is its restrictive blackout policy. Your geographic location determines which games you can watch.

One Des Moines-based MLB.TV subscriber recently complained that MLB.TV’s blackout policy prevented him from being able to watch six different teams. Additional restrictions will prevent you from watching pivotal games that affect the playoffs and some of the weekend games that ESPN broadcasts. Be sure to enter your zip code into the MLB.TV website and find out which games you can’t and can access before you join.

Features

MLB.TV is one of the few streaming services that are available on both Xbox and PlayStation consoles. TV devices from Apple, Amazon, Roku, Android and others also have MLB.TV apps.

  • Living room devices: MLB.TV app for Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV Sticks and Roku.
  • Smart TVs and Blu-ray players: MLB.TV app for certain Samsung televisions and devices based on certain versions of Amazon Fire TV, Android TV or Roku.
  • Mobile devices and tablets: At Bat app for Amazon Fire tablets, Android and iOS.
  • Game consoles: MLB.TV app for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
  • Desktop browsers: Most browsers.

One of MLB.TV’s most notable features is 60 frames-per-second video. Newer iPhones and iPads support the 60 FPS streams, as do most other TV devices. You can also watch several games at once using Multi-View or get a quick recap of a game’s major plays by using Catch-Up.
