AT&T Eyes ‘Wireless-Centric’ Video Offering for 2018 | Multichannel The news today from AT&T's CEO is that they will begin beta testing next quarter a "wireless-centric direct-to-home video offering built off of DirecTV Now". Which sounds to me like a managed IPTV version of DirecTV (rather than OTT, like DirecTV Now) that will be delivered via AT&T's upcoming 5G fixed wireless broadband internet service. I imagine that, like traditional fuller-featured TV services, it will come with a dedicated (although maybe optional) STB and remote. All of AT&T's video services are moving toward the same new software-based cloud-virtualized back-end platform. I would bet this same upcoming managed IPTV platform eventually gets rolled out to AT&T's wired home broadband customers too (AT&T Fiber, AT&T Internet), replacing Uverse TV.
