Last weekend, in the aftermath of AT&T's purchase of Time Warner, the nation's second largest carrier announced that it will launch a new app called "WatchTV" that streams television content from AT&T owned cable networks. Actually, much of the content comes from the former Turner properties that were included in the $85 billion transaction. Today, AT&T officially revealed that the "WatchTV" app will be available for free to subscribers of the wireless provider's latest two unlimited plans. Those plans, AT&T Unlimited &More and AT&T Unlimited &More Premium, will both launch next week.

WatchTV will include content from:

  • A&E

After the app launches, ET, Comedy Central, MTV2, Nicktoons, Teen Nick and VH-1 will be added. WatchTV will be compatible with nearly every smartphone, tablet and web browser, and will include over 15,000 on-demand television shows and movies. The app will also be offered to non-AT&T customers for a price of $15 per month.

AT&T also revealed some of the features of the two new unlimited plans it will launch next week. AT&T Unlimited &More includes the option to add WatchTV, a $15 monthly credit toward the DirecTV Now app, and up to 4G LTE unlimited data.

AT&T Unlimited &More Premium includes all of the aforementioned features plus one premium streaming service for free. Subscribers will pick the free premium service from a list that includes HBO, Cinemax, Showtime, Starz, Amazon Music Unlimited, Pandora Premium and VRV. The plan also comes with 15GB of high-speed tethering, high-quality video, and a $15 monthly credit toward DirecTV, DirecTV Now, and U-verse TV.
