AT&T’s upcoming video streaming service is taking different shape after the company reportedly abandoned plans to create a three-tiered service.

The service allegedly has a launch date slated for later this year and will compete directly with Netflix, Apple TV+, Disney+ and others. Instead of selling HBO, Cinemax and the Warner Bros. TV and movie library separately, AT&T’s will package them altogether. And the price point could be the best feature.
