What’s WatchTV?

 

WatchTV is our new streaming app that gives you 30+ live TV channels (channel list in the solution below), including 15,000+ on-demand titles. WatchTV can be purchased by itself for $15 a month. Simply download the app from your respective app stores, and dive into your entertainment.

  2. Click the “Start your free trial” button
  3. Create an account by entering a valid email address and password and setting up your User ID

How do the AT&T Wireless accounts play into this?

One WatchTV account can be added to an AT&T Unlimited &MoreSM or AT&T Unlimited &MoreSM Premium wireless plan for no extra charge. If you have one of these eligible wireless plans, start using WatchTV by verifying your AT&T phone number and creating an account. Then, download the WatchTV app and dive into your entertainment. Each WatchTV account can stream on one device at a time.

  • Note, with AT&T Unlimited &MoreSM Premium you have the option to get one of the following Premiums added to your account as well: HBO, Cinemax, Showtime, Starz, Pandora, Amazon Music, or VRV.
  • To learn how to add these, go to the WatchTV FAQs and check out the “How do I sign up for premium platforms included with the AT&T &MoreSM Premium plan?”

Note: At the moment, one WatchTV account can only be tied to one Wireless account. So, you may only stream on one device at a time – regardless of how many lines are on the unlimited account.

Want to upgrade your Wireless account? Select Manage my plan under the ‘My wireless’ section.

Re: Here's what to know about AT&T WatchTV and our two new unlimited plans

So let me get this straight, I have five lines and I can only stream one device at a time! Who came up with this crap and why did you think to use it as a selling point for a unlimited family plan. That is pure stupidity and false advertisement. I sure didnt see that in the small print. If I had I definitely would not have changed my plan. THIS IS USELESS!  I  have been with ATT since 2008 but I might be looking into a new carrier as others have unlimited plans as well so it isnt like you re offering anything new or innovative.

Yes, this is true. I wasted 4 hours today switching from my old ATT plan to the new unlimited premium plan only to find out that only 1or 4 phones could watch anything at the same time, AND only one account can access the "free" add-on. The customer service rep actually told me that if I wanted my  kids to be able to listen to Pandora premium I needed to give them my account info. Seriously? They wanted me to give them my att account number!

I upgraded my plan on 12/6/18, went through the attwatchtv.com/verify process.  It recognizes my number, then prompts me to play.  I kept doing it and finally it seemed to work.  But when I logged a few hours afterward back to square one.  Contacted the ATT WatchTV support was told 24 hours, called Dec 18 was told max 48 hours, rest assured it would be fixed, called again after the 48 hours still no go, was assured they would fix it.  They also changed my password to the ATTWATCHTV account, without my consent, I got the email message where they did it.  So obviously this is still and issue, I am paying for this service, it is part of the package, tomorrow I am calling and getting a refund on part of the package as long as I can not stream watch tv I'm NOT paying the full price.  I've been with you guys for decades, I can easily go elsewhere.

I am completely unable to login to Watch TV.  I have run through the forgot username and password only to be told after I request them and reset the password that it’s not correct.  I have checked to make sure I qualify for the service and it says yes, yet I still cannot login.   I see many others have this issue and yet I still have yet to find a solution.  HELP!!

Re: Here's what to know about AT&T WatchTV and our two new unlimited plans

This attwatch TV has been a nightmare from the beginning. I have chatted with at least 4 people online, insisted that a supervisor calls me and no resolution. they all speak the same words and all tell me to wait "5-7 business days"

 

Its now week 5 and i still can't access amazon unlimited music. Was escalate to a higher supervisor and guess what he told me ?................wait for it.............i assure you that this will be fixed in 5-7 business days.

 

How can a company like ATT have that poor level of customer support?

Same here. i have been with ATT for 12 years and have never witnessed such horrendous support.

 

i was told that my account would be deleted and I would have to sign back up. Account never got deleted. I can watch the TV but cannot access amazon unlimited. It worked for 3 days initially then stopped working.
