VIAB CHTR

Charter Communications said it plans to launch an over-the-top streaming video service at the end of March dubbed TV Essentials to its broadband-only customers without a video service, in the cable industry’s latest effort to recapture pay TV subscribers. TV Essentials will be available to Charter broadband customers for $14.99 per month and will include about 60 live TV channels and on-demand content from programmers like Viacom, AMC Networks, A+E Networks, Discovery and Hallmark. AT&T, which already has streaming service DirecTV Now and a lower-cost sports-free service AT&T Watch, is planning a direct-to-consumer offering later this year. And then there are the existing streaming services like Sling TV, Hulu with Live TV, Sony PlayStation Vue, fubo TV, YouTube TV, Philo TV and others. "Spectrum TV Essentials is an OTT offering designed to provide Spectrum Internet-only customers a new low-price, high-value video option," Charter chairman and CEO Tom Rutledge said in a press release.
