This makes little sense to me. Isn't one of the key benefits to the other streaming services that you don't have a contract and that you can cancel anytime?

May as well get one of AT&T's cable and internet bundles if you're willing to pay $60/month for streaming.
I think At&t said they will stop selling Uverse in markets they sell At&t tv. Also there is rumors that At&t is trying to spin off or sell off DirecTV. They might see At&t tv as their new cable service going forward. Either way though I think it's pretty much doom to fail.

I think what they don't understand is people don't want contracts and being charged for every little thing.

Streaming services are becoming confusing. Not one single stream service offers everything I need like DTV does.
Luckily for me, DTV caved into my demands and I now have a $125 bundle for $40 for the next 12
Months and free Ticket Max.
Now, I can stop researching and just enjoy what I want all in one place and not worry about upgrading my cable speed.

I switched to Sling for the month. The last time I tried it about 2 years ago the picture quality was terrible. They seem to improved it alot. For me it looks just as good as YouTube TV now. There is a slight reduced quality when you start a channel but it bump up quickly and the initial quality isn't as bad as DirecTV now was, which was almost unwatchable until it bumped up like 30 second into watch that show or station.

The one ESPN stream is annoying and I tried to use the ESPN app as a work around for 2 stream but it kicks the other stream off after about 2 minutes. The user interface is decent, better than Directv now, but can be annoying from time to time. I wish the 3 day playback was on every channel, it was annoying that AMC doesn't have it.

Lastly I hope that they work out a deal to get the fox sport regional channels back. I could see myself switching to Sling blue for the couple months when football ends and just the NBA is on.
