AT&T is allowing its DirecTV customers to access and stream DirecTV video content without impacting their data bucket. Consumers who have both AT&T and DirecTV accounts can stream movies and television shows through the DirecTV over AT&T's wireless network anywhere in the U.S. AT&T warns that some "exclusions apply and may incur data usage." Moreover, free DirecTV video streaming will be subject to network management, including throttling. AT&T didn't specify what content might be excluded from free streaming, nor did it say if the content is streamed in high or standard definition. The app also allows people to watch live and recorded shows. DirecTV customers can download recorded shows from their DVR (via WiFi) to their device for offline watching. Last, the app adds dedicated buttons for live TV and DVR for quicker access to those features. The DirecTV app is free to download from the iTunes App Store. AT&T didn't say when this same functionality will reach its Android app.
