The Entertainment Studios cable networks Comedy.TV and JusticeCentral.TV will be carried by the new DirecTV Now streaming service after Entertainment Studios founder, chairman and CEO Byron Allen signed a deal with DirecTV, TVNewsCheck reports.
The new service is due to launch later this month.
“DirecTV Now will offer more than 100 channels, including live and on-demand programming from top networks, as well as premium add-on options,” the report notes. “Customers will be able to access and stream the service over a wired or wireless Internet connection using a variety of connected devices without requiring additional hardware, satellites, annual contracts or credit checks.”
Said Allen: “We value our continued and expanding relationship with AT&T. DirecTV Now customers will be able to enjoy watching our networks wherever they are at their convenience.”
