Looks like you have the same 1TB limit that I do. I made it through the month without going over. I found some fine print on AT&T’s billing page that said I’d be billed after the third time I’d exceeded the cap (which I haven’t yet).
Still ... once I get the time to pre-wire my living room TV for satellite service, and pre-run a fiber optic line to my network rack I’ll cancel DTVnow and switch over to regular DTV (plus Hulu and Netflix).
I can’t say much more about AT&T’s offerings other than that they are sometimes different in different markets and sometimes even within the same market area.
In my area the big ISP choices are AT&T (FTTP or FTTN) and Comcast (DOCSIS). AT&T has a 1TB cap for customers with less than their fastest 1Gbps. Comcast, per Dentman’s posts, also have a 1TB cap but I’m not sure if they drop the cap based on other contract terms. My guess is that they do.
Something strange is happening with my DTVNOW app. I have two TV's both with a ROKU, one in the basement and one in the living room. I use the basement one about 90% of the time. When I turned on the LR TV last night the DTVNOW logo was white instead of the usual black. I had to sign in again and realized they updated/changed the app. It was a bit of a hassle to setup my favories list, a process that used to invlove 1-2 clicks now takes 4-5.
I figuredd today when I urned on the basement system I would have to do the same thing but the basement TV is still using the "old" app/UI.
The updated app does have a DVR function though in small print I had to get within 6" to read saw it was a beta version.
Great news for DirecTV Now users. I read that all 2017 and newer model Samsung TVs now have the DirecTV app.
Sure enough I checked my TV and there it was. I can now officially nix my Roku box. 2 more wires now gone!
First I've heard of it. Honestly expected it. I would imagine many customers are like me with the AT&T shoephone plan that brings the cost to $20.00 per month with HBO. That doesn't seem like a price they could keep for very long. Not a problem for me.
Just got an email about DirecTV NOW being changed to AT&T TV NOW.
" In an effort to deliver the best service possible across our products, we will soon be reintroducing the DIRECTV NOW experience as AT&T TV NOW.
In the coming weeks, your DIRECTV NOW app will change to AT&T TV, but will continue to deliver the same great streaming entertainment. As an existing customer, your service will carry on as usual without any interruptions.

I had heard there some changes coming will see how this change effects things if at all.
