    To get all the Hallmark channels with ATT TV Now, You have to got to the Ultimate Bundle to get 1 HM channel with the others as an add-on ($5/month). It does include HBOMax (only a year) which is a nice perk. Geez. $120 to get a 2nd TV box! Still, overall price drops $90/month over DISH, at least for a year. There's also the 2 year commitment and they don't tell you what it jumps to after the first year.
    Evidently the app is available on some devices. When ordering you have no option to NOT get a set top box. Not convinced...

    You're looking at ATT TV, which requires a 24 month contract, price increases in the 2nd year, and has RSN fees tacked onto packages that include those channels.

    AT&T TV NOW - Stream Live TV & On Demand, HBO Included is the no contract service without all the extra fees. (but it's missing a bunch of networks)

    For AT&T TV when you click the small "See other details" link it has the full price of the packages.

    To get all three Hallmark channels with AT&T TV Now you can get any base package including Plus ($55/mo) then add on Movies Extra Pack ($5/mo). The main Hallmark Channel comes in the following:
    • Featured Packages: Plus ($55/mo), Max with HBO Max and Cinemax ($80/mo) [Max also includes access to RSNs, other sports channels, CMT, Paramount Network & TV Land]
    • Other Packages: Entertainment ($90/mo), Choice ($110/mo), Xtra ($124/mo), Ultimate ($135/mo), Premier ($183/mo)
      • Entertainment & Premier also includes Hallmark Movies & Mysteries without having to get the Movies Extra Pack add-on.
    AT&T TV Now offers the AT&T TV packages under the "Other Packages" tab. You pay full price and must BYOD however the benefit here is no 24-month contract and no RSN fee.

    New customers who get Plus, Optimo Mas, Entertainment - Ultimate are eligible for a 30 day trial of HBO Max. All base packages (except Premier) are eligible for a 30 day trial of Showtime.

    See this post for a full breakdown of all AT&T video services including regular price, 12 month pricing, equipment, etc.

    Be nicer if you could pick what you want and not pay for 2 additional services you don't need. Personally the only feature I'd want is the 4K. They seem to be going the Netflix pricing route by bundling 4K with additional streams.

    Yeah. But at least they're offering a way to get that select 4K content *somehow*. Hulu with Live TV offers an upgrade to get unlimited in-home simultaneous streams and that feature alone costs an extra $9.99/mo. And they're not as generous as YTTV to begin with, only offering 2 (anywhere) simultaneous streams in the base live TV plan while YTTV offers 3.

    Given that Hulu Live and YTTV both have a base plan cost of $65/mo, my guess is that YTTV will also charge about an extra $10 for the unlimited screens (plus 4K and offline downloads) add-on. These services are keenly aware of what their competitors are charging as there's zero friction to quit one and switch to the other.

    For $10 they need sufficient 4K content to make it worthwhile. I can get the Fox Sports 4K content through the app. Remains to be seen what other 4K content they will be provide.

    My guess is that YTTV will offer about the same content in 4K that Fubo TV already offers (basically just select live sports from the Fox and NBC groups). YTTV's move will put pressure on Hulu Live to also include live 4K content. They may well put it in their existing Unlimited Screens add-on as YTTV will do. Shouldn't be a big deal for Hulu to implement given that they already offers a small amount of 4K in their on-demand library (mainly just some of the Hulu Originals, I think), so their apps already support 4K.

    Assuming the Tokyo Olympics proceed this year, that should be a high-profile event that will offer a decent amount of 4K (and hopefully 4K HDR) to cable TV services that can support it. So I bet we see Hulu Live and AT&T TV get on board with 4K before then.
