The FCC is worried about AT&T DirecTV Now [telecom]

By Todd Haselton

AT&T's DirecTV Now service may seem pretty compelling on the surface, especially since it offers a solid bundle of more than 100 TV channels for $35 per month, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's good for consumers. In fact, the FCC is worried that the way AT&T has decided to handle DirecTV data on its network could be in violation of net neutrality regulations. There's good reason why.

A recent letter from FCC chief Jon Wilkins to AT&T's lawyers obtained by Ars Technica expresses the FCC's concerns that AT&T allows DirecTV content to stream on its network without affecting the data usage of its customers. While that's a benefit for folks on the network who subscribe to DirecTV, it's not good for competition.
