I’ve not read of anyone doing it yet.
I expect that it will be explicitly restricted to certain devices. Different devices have differing DRM capabilities (HDCP) and they can't allow deployment on devices that don't implement the protocols used.
It is available on FireTV devices.
Yep, and that’s the only android based box it is on. It is also on Roku but that’s a different OS.
No worries, was just clarifying “though notably not the boxes” for others who may be following...
So I have had to re-activate my service in a quick pinch here.. We had some bad winds last weekend which appears to be the nail in the coffin on my pole mount for my dish... I noticed it moving a little too much and sure enough the pole rusted out and snapped about 6 inches in the ground.. So while i contemplate my next move.. I resigned up for ATT TV since I still have all my boxes.
ATT TV or Now?
To me, Now at the Max level is an excellent mix at a fair price though notably missing AMC and BBCA.
TV. Now is missing too many channels
In all honestly AT&T TV Now Max is perfect for me channel wise now that AMC launched their AMC+ service on Apple TV Channels & Prime Video Channels for $8.99/mo. Granted you can't DVR the linear AMC, BBCA, IFC, SundanceTV & AMC+ feeds but all the big programming is added on demand within 24 hours of airing on linear. It also includes Shudder, SundanceNow & IFC Films Unlimited which I find more value in than the missing A+E Networks & Discovery channels. If I ever need those missing two channel groups I'll just wait for TVision Vibe to be available nationwide lol.
I hope they gave you a discount or no commitment if you are paying full price. If they are charging you full price with no commitment for AT&T TV, if it were me, I would have just created an AT&T TV Now account and got the package I needed (instead of getting AT&T TV Choice you could get AT&T TV Now Choice). This way I could avoid paying the Regional Sports Fee since AT&T TV Now doesn't charge an RSN Fee on Choice - Premier.
They gave me full new customer pricing
So you’re now under a new 2 year contract deal with the new customer signup perks and such?
yup and another 2 week trial while i see if i can get this pole remounted
I had forgotten that 2 week trial. Hope you can get your pole issue fixed before then.
But to be fair while ATT TV’s rates are a bit on the high side and it is easy to look at 2nd year and say they are horribly high, it isn’t quite that bad. Here’s some math to contemplate...
All at Entertainment level -
1st year @$50/month = $600
Minus the $100 rebate at the time = -$100
2nd year @$108 ($93 f/ent., $15 f/HBO) = $1296
Average for 24 months = about $75/month
Compared to :
YTTV + HBO = $80/month
ATT TV Now Max = $80/month
SlingBlue+TotalTV+HBO = $65/month
Heck, even doing away with a live streamer and going with Netflix, Hulu no ads, CBS/Showtime Apple deal, AppleTV+, Peacock, HBO and AMC+ comes out to about $70/month.
I finally got the pole re installed and level but having a hell of a time getting it peaked this time Starting to wonder if it got bent I can only peak at 88 on 99CA TP9. I was 95 previous. I get glimmers of 91-92 but I can’t keep it locked It’s overcast so not sure if that is causing an issue. Will try again Tuesday. Supposed to be sunny
We’re heavily overcast today too and if yours is as heavy as mine, it probably will affect the signal by some unknown amount.
Go have a beer or three and wait for a bit of sunshine!
It doesn't take much at all. If the reflector or arm was bent any you will not get maximum signal.
Yeh I am going to keep messing on Tuesday. It is raining now and the signal barely dropped so possible the clouds were causing the issue and it may pop once it clears in which case I did good lol
Well the skies parted this morning.. Gained 2 points with the clearing. Got my 99 to low 90's/Upper 80's across and 103 is all 95+ I dont see messing with it anymore causing any major difference in rain.. Had no issues yesterday afternoon with the moderate rain.. I however have a dilemma.. I forgot how much i Liked ATT TV lol.. First let me say the picture is ever so crisper... the interface is just so much better and detailed on the Osprey vs the Genie software... The flip side is though the content is that much higher with Directv... gain PBS back and 4K channels... I dunno what to do lol
Glad to see you got it all fixed.
Yeah, ATT TV is really a good service. Great PQ and being the only live streaming service with DD5.1, great AQ too. And while I’m not as enamored of the Osprey box as some others, the UI is really good using the service.
Fortunately the app on other devices is very good too. The primary differences being with trickplay and having to use a more generic remote with the service.
Yeh I may stick with it this time.. The biggest thing holding me back is sports in 4K. But in all honesty.. I rarely watch them anyway in 4K.. Maybe 10 min here or there...
