AT&T and Roku decided to let their contract lapse as both companies are unable to agree to new terms. This means that Roku users now have limited access to AT&T TV, the live streaming service of AT&T.
On January 1, the Dallas-based telecom giant AT&T pulled its two streaming TV apps — AT&T TV and AT&T TV Now (formerly DirecTV Now) — from Roku’s application store.
Existing users can still access the AT&T streaming apps on the various Roku platforms, but any new AT&T TV subscribers will not be able to use the app on their Roku.
Heads up: Starting January 1, 2020, you won’t be able to add the AT&T TV channel to your Roku device. Already have AT&T TV on your Roku device? You can keep using it as long as you don’t delete the app. We’re actively working on a new agreement with Roku and hope to resolve this soon.AT&T Support
AT&T TV Now is still available on iOS, Android, Android TV and Amazon Fire TV, while AT&T TV is available through the company’s own line of Android TV boxes.
