Weeks after receiving regulatory blessing of its $48.5 billion merger with the country's largest satellite television provider, the 2nd largest U.S. wireless carrier plans to offer combined TV and wireless service in a single bill, the company said in a release. The "all in one" plan will allow consumers to connect four televisions and smartphones, and will include 10GB of shareable data.
Companies such as Verizon are known to bundle Internet, cable and landlines, but AT&T is moving to become the first to combine cellular with other services—a fact that the wireless behemoth was not shy about pointing out in its announcement.
The plan, which will launch Aug. 10 and will cost $200 per month for 12 months, may save consumers at least $600 per year, AT&T said. "We're going to deliver more TV and entertainment choices to more screens – when and where our customers want it," said Brad Bentley, EVP and chief marketing officer of AT&T Entertainment and Internet Services, in a statement. "And we'll offer incredible value with more flexibility and convenience through our integrated packages that deliver a great experience."
