It’s that time of the year again.

No, not Christmas in the summer but Back to School!

This time, I’m focusing on the college folks and streamers.

While I’m not far removed from swiping my meal card at the end of the week for TOSTITOS® Hint of Lime Flavored Tortilla Chips and cramming all night in the library downtown because my university’s library closed at 9 PM.

I remember the days when staying up till 3 AM watching my rented television shows was life. But that is no longer the case. But for the folks in the audience who can – I recommend you check out AT&T’s DirecTV Now.

AT&T launched its internet TV streaming service, DirecTV Now late last year and has since grown in subscribers and content offerings.  I for one enjoy the opportunity of watching Desus and Mero (the brand is too strong) on Viceland.

With channels like HBO for Insecure, AT&T branded content and the option to view local channels live, the possibilities are endless for your viewing pleasure.

They have about four plans available for users, which starts at just $35/month which will get you around 60 channels. And it goes up to $70/month for the full 120.
