Fox Networks Group Inks AT&T Deal, Including Rights for DirecTV Now Streaming Service

Fox Networks Group reached an agreement to extend its carriage deal across AT&T and DirecTV’s services, including the telco’s new DirecTV Now over-the-top streaming service set to launch Nov. 28.

At this point, CBS is the only notable programmer AT&T hasn’t announced a programming deal with for DirecTV Now.

Fox programming available to DirecTV Now customers will include Fox News Channel, Fox Business Network, FX and FXX, as well as FXM, FS 1, FS 2, Big Ten Network, 18 of Fox’s regional sports networks, National Geographic and Nat Geo Wild.

In addition, Fox and AT&T said they have agreed on a “framework” for Fox Broadcasting programming to be delivered to DirecTV Now customers nationwide.

DirecTV Now will be priced starting at $35 for a bundle that includes live and on-demand programming for more than 100 channels, AT&T execs have said. Other media companies AT&T has signed on for the OTT service include Disney/ESPN, NBCUniversal, HBO, Turner, AMC Networks, Viacom, Scripps, Starz, A+E Networks and Univision Communications.

AT&T will unveil more details of DirecTV Now at its launch event next Monday in New York City. For now, the telco has said customers will be able to stream the service over wired and wireless internet connections using “a variety of connected devices.”

DirecTV Now will include up to 14,000 VOD selections, and subscribers will be offered a free Apple TV if they sign up for a three-month commitment, or a free Amazon Fire TV Stick if they pay for on month, Variety reported last month, citing leaked documents.

Also under the Fox Networks Group-AT&T deal, customers of DirecTV and AT&T U-Verse will continue to receive Fox broadcast stations, cable and regional sports networks through linear TV, online, and TV Everywhere apps.  In addition, DirecTV customers will have access to 4K Ultra HD content from Fox sports properties including MLB regular season and playoff games, top college football and basketball games, NASCAR races and FIFA World Cup games.
