This sounds either a) interesting or b) concerning

I know its not the same as TWC but interesting to see how they handle content

Time Warner Media. Not Time Warner Cable. Time Warner Cable doesn't exist anymore. It's now part of Charter and called Spectrum.

Ah but that's exactly what the OP said!

Imagine the debt AT&T would have to take on to finance this...they could have probably wired the country with fiber a few times over with the combined purchase price of DirecTV and possibly TW.

My bad.... I think. I don't recall the second line being there when I replied last night. Of course how would anyone know with the "edited" flag turned off.

No concern kd6ciz, I did edit my post right after I posted it due to catching the same thing you saw. Just depends on when you read it :D

"A lot of what's being described is theoretical at the moment. But one example involves DirecTV Now, a streaming service that AT&T is planning to launch later this month. DirecTV Now is a cable-like bundle of channels that will be sold via the Internet."

Would this be a good work around for us with HTPCs?
