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.

Why it matters: The disconnect adds to the wealth gap. The richest 10% of households — who own 84% of stocks — are getting richer, while millions of out-of-work Americans cross their fingers that pandemic unemployment benefits will be extended.
