These Aren't the Droids You're Looking For

Data allowance is supposed to be waived for $10 or free if you have TV service.

Of course, having their AT&T TV (formerly known as "DirecTV NOW") doesnt count. They just dont disclose that.

Ive had AT&T TV Now since it was known as DirecTVNOW, and was grandfathered into a really good legacy package that offered channels I watch that their new packages dont include (like AMC, BBC America, etc).

This week that appears to have ended (at least for me) because it looks like they killed grandpa.

Cant log in, but it appears im still going to be billed.
Numerous chat Agents have walked me thru password reset after password reset, each promising it will work this time and in the end offering $5 credits and a follow-up email that never arrives.   

Its a shame because they finally got their cloud DVR working a bit closer to a TiVo (like being able to see what you are fast-forwarding thru) and a decent grid guide that lets you see ahead 2 hours withut having to scroll.

Initially it looked like an issue with Roku but with the runaround from at&t its not clear where the problem lay, and since at&t is overly-focused on hawking its overpriced HBO NOW, it looks like a sinking ship.

A follow-up:
Got rid of AT&T TV NOW and went with Sling for half the price AT&T was charging. 
Not as polished a DVR function and many channels dont allow pause, rewind or fast-forward.

Those credits the Agents promised? Never materialized. 
DirecTV was a good product, but there is no way I could recommend it now under the rule of Ma Bell.

That should help a lot!  AT&T is a big 'suck'.  Hope it happens soon.
