Excellent. Thank you for the info. However, it is a huge disappointment. I want to give AT&T my money to have the unlimited plan as I have a long commute and I do things such as YouTube and Netflix on the go. Now, if the DTV Now app had decent On Demand (which it doesn't), or the DVR that is supposed to come next year, then maybe this is a different conversation. Right now the DTV Now app is halfway to where it needs to be. Come put a dish on my house and just not hook it up. I just want to stream. lol

If you are using an AT&T hotspot and then tethering secondary devices streaming with DIRECTV NOW at this time are not data free. Be on the lookout for additional updates as we get additional information. We appreciate your patience and love for the DIRECTV NOW community.
UPDATE: If you’re a DIRECTV NOW and AT&T Mobile Wireless customer, streaming DIRECTV NOW movies and programs over the AT&T wireless network won't count against your data usage allowance. If you are streaming over your ATT Wireless service, it will not count, but if you are streaming over your Home Internet, it will. Check out more on Data Usage with DIRECTV NOW.

I have AT&T uverse internet with a 1T usage allowance. Will using Direct TV Now go against this cap or will it be free as it is for wireless users.

Thank you for the clarification.
But living in a rural area and using Directtv Now as my TV service through AT&T this would be really needed to create flexibilit to use the AT&T phone with hotspot functionality (not a sperate AT&T hotspot subscription) as a hotspot to execute the DirectTVNow app on another device.
Please let me know if you need anymore input.

I have done exactly what you have done and I do not see "sponsored data" in OLAM or the myAT&T app. Is there a trick?
Thanks for your help!
Nevemind, I found it.
myAT&T app > View usage details > Manage usage and scroll down to see sponsored data.

Check out my post here.
It sounds like you're seeing the same thing I was yesterday before I dug into it further. When you view your account on the myAT&T App, are you seeing the line item for sponsored data?
@webbuzz had a similar issue and provided a helpful guide to seeing the sponsored data line item.
"myAT&T app > View usage details > Manage usage and scroll down to see sponsored data."
Give that a shot and let me know if this helps!

Now according to this person, he is wrong because DTV Now customer service via chat told me and I have the picture the exact opposite. There is a lot of miscommunication in here, that someone needs to address.

Hello. Only using the App counts as no-data-use. If you use your phone as a hotspot, you will still use up data.

This reminds me of the Iraq invasion when Baghdad Bob kept saying there were no Americans in the city and there were U.S. tanks rolling by the building he was broadcasting from.
No issues here, people. Just restore your device to factory settings and reboot. Thanks for using DirecTV Now!
