DirecTV Now Passes 1 Million Customer Mark

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

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 [fiercecable.com]. 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?
