It took a little more than a year for AT&T's DirecTV Now streaming video service to reach its first million.

The Dallas telecommunications provider said Tuesday that more than 1 million consumers have subscribed to its service, which offers a mix of live television channels and on-demand content over the internet to your phone, tablet or TV box like a Roku or Amazon Fire Stick.

The figure marks solid progress for the upstart service, though it still lags behind Sling TV, which Comscore said in June had more than 2 million customers. DirecTV Now launched last November, while Sling TV launched in February of 2015.

Will AT&T be able to build a content pipeline that's robust enough?

    My ex also likes that Hallmark crap, but she's told me that Hallmark now has put all their stuff on YouTube and you can just watch it there for free. I haven't verified this of course.
