AT&T's Throttled Unlimited Plan Scores HBO
AT&T today said customers who subscribe to its Unlimited Choice wireless plan will be given free access to HBO. There are three ways to watch HBO for free. First, customers who already subscribe to HBO through an AT&T video service (DirecTV, U-Verse) will now get HBO at no cost as long as they also subscribe to Unlimited Choice. HBO will refund the monthly fee directly on customers' bills. Second, AT&T video and wireless customers who don't already subscribe to HBO will automatically receive access to HBO's premium channels through that video service for free. Last, customers who have AT&T Unlimited Choice, but don't use an AT&T-branded video service, will be able to access HBO via DirecTV Now or the HBO Go apps at no cost. The AT&T Unlimited Choice plan includes a $25 monthly video credit that can be applied to any AT&T video service. Subscribers to this plan have access to unlimited data service, but at slower speeds. For example, LTE 4G data is capped at 3 Mbps and video streams are capped at 480p.
