Advertisements As regulars here know, I've been trying to read the tea leaves for the past few years with regards to Comcast's long-range plans to switch to all-IP video. The transition is taking longer than some might have anticipated but Comcast continues to take baby steps in that direction. This year's baby steps (so far) are: making all-IPTV service (IP linear channels, IP cloud DVR, IP VOD) the default option for new TV customers (Comcast will still give new TV customers X1 boxes with QAM tuners and hard drives in them but you have to specifically ask for that. It's not even a listed option when you sign up online.) on June 25, apparently shutting down QAM-based VOD and moving to all-IP VOD for all TV customers Wow, I live in Comcast/AT&T country and I think you're the first person I've ever heard of (offline or online) who subscribes to Comcast TV but AT&T Internet. But, if you love your TiVo but don't love Comcast internet, that makes sense. As for Uverse TV...I might have some bad (or good?) news for you. It's been rumored for awhile by AT&T installers that Uverse TV will cease to be offered as an option to new customers around the time that AT&T introduces a new streaming subscription TV service that they've been working on for awhile now. Introduction of the new service keeps getting pushed back -- it was originally slated for last fall -- but signs are now pointing to this summer (3Q). This new service will become the default option that AT&T sells to their home internet customers, as opposed to DirecTV satellite (which will still be around for years) and Uverse TV (which will continue on for some time for existing customers but probably be unavailable for new sign-ups). There're are a lot of unknowns about AT&T's new TV service, including the branding, the channel packages, the pricing, whether there will be an initial contract, etc. We do know that it will use the same underlying tech platform and online distribution system that's already in place for their DirecTV Now service. We know that it will use a 4K HDR (HDR10 & HLG) AT&T-issued STB running their own customized version of Google Android TV with full access to Google Play Store apps (with Netflix and YouTube already pre-loaded) and a full-featured voice remote with Google Assistant. It will rely exclusively on cloud DVR (no hard drive inside the box). AT&T will almost certainly offer a bundle discount if it's packaged with their home internet service (currently they offer a $10 TV+internet bundling discount) and they'll almost certainly waive any data cap you might have on your home internet service if you subscribe to the streaming TV service too (since they already do this for their customers who have DirecTV Now). My hunch (could be wrong, of course) is that the upcoming service is basically going to be the same thing as DirecTV Now currently is, except it will come with the new AT&T STB. By the time it's all unveiled, I think AT&T will have added several popular cable channels that are currently missing from their Plus and Max channel packages (A&E, HGTV, History, Food, AMC, etc.) -- they're in the midst of renegotiating some of their carriage contracts lately. And when it comes out, they'll offer a long-rumored cloud DVR upgrade from the current 20 hours to 100 hours (probably for an extra $10/mo).
