DirecTV Now was released in 2016 and is a streaming television service by AT&T. It allows subscribers in the United States to stream programming from cable channels without the long term commitment. Currently, new DIRECTV NOW subscriptions include a free trial period. Customers may cancel before the free trial ends to avoid any charges. If you choose not to select a subscription package, your account allows you to demo the service with “FreeVIEW” status. Your account remains in FreeVIEW status until you add a package, which can be done at any time. There are no fees or charges for FreeVIEW.
