Days after finalizing its deal to acquire Time Warner, one of the largest content companies in the country, AT&T has unveiled is newest video package called WatchTV, which includes 31 channels for $15 — significantly cheaper than its offering with DirectTV Now.

Why it matters: The company has wasted no time integrating Time Warner's assets into its new package, which will include channels like HLN, CNN, Cartoon Network, TNT and more. In fact, roughly 20% of the channels offered in the new bundle currently come from Turner, the cable subsidiary of Time Warner.

  • In addition to 31 channels of live programming, WatchTV has over 15,000 TV shows and movies on demand. It plans to integrate a few more Viacom channels, like VH1, BET and Comedy Central in the coming weeks.

How to get it: WatchTV is available to AT&T subscribers cross-platform via a WatchTV app or on select browsers. The service comes at no additional cost with AT&T's two new unlimited data plans, unveiled Thursday — AT&T Unlimited and AT&T Unlimited Premium — which launch next week.

Go deeper: AT&T's merger will change how we watch TV.

Texas authorities have issued a warning amid concerns that the water supply in the southeast of the state may contain the brain-eating amoeba naegleria fowleri following the death of a 6-year-old boy.

Details: The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality issued a "do not use" water alert Friday for eight cities, along with the Clemens and Wayne Scott Texas Department of Criminal Justice corrections centers and the Dow Chemical plant in Freeport. This was later lifted for all places except for Lake Jackson, which issued a disaster declaration Saturday.
