AT&T Internet customers + Direct TV Now. Unlimited data usage or not?
I am an AT&T Internet customer. My Internet plan usage allowance is 1TB per month. 1TB per month = 400 hrs of HD video streaming per month (= 13 hrs per day). If I use Direct TV Now for watching tv channels on top of my normal Internet use, it will result in my monthly usage allowance being exceeded. Q: Will I incur additional usage charges ($$$) for consuming more than 1 TB/month because I am also streaming tv with Direct TV Now? If AT&T Wireless customers get unlimited data usage with Direct TV Now -- do AT&T Internet customers also get unlimited data usage?
Re: AT&T Internet customers + Direct TV Now. Unlimited data usage or not?
No - right now a DirecTV Now subscription does not give ATT Internet subscribers unlimited (no data cap) service for free (unlike DirecTV or U-Verse, both of which, if bundled with ATT Internet do give you unlimited service). I am not sure how they bill for exceeding the cap - I do know that to get unlimited (without the service bundles) cost an additional $30/month in 2016 - no idea if this has changed. There were some rumors/reports last year that they were considering giving DTVN subscribers unlimited service also (and unlike DTV and U-Verse customers, DTVN customers would actually find it useful), but I haven't heard any more about that - it certainly hasn't happened yet.
