AT&T is now giving away HBO to all Unlimited customers

AT&T free HBO

The competition to see how many freebies wireless carriers can cram into a single plan is heating up. Just days after T-Mobile announced it's giving Netflix to some customers on its unlimited plan, AT&T is upping the ante.

Starting on Friday, all AT&T customers on one of the company's unlimited plans will get access to HBO for free. If you're already subscribed to HBO through an AT&T cable or streaming service, you'll get a rebate for the extra $15 a month, and everyone else just gets access to HBO through the HBO Go app.

‘Gaping security holes’ in millions of AT&T modems, researchers claim

AT&T modem security U-Verse

A security research firm claims to have found "gaping security flaws" in most AT&T U-verse cable modems -- you know, the type used by most every AT&T customer to get online. The flaws could potentially allow a remote attacker to access the modem that serves as the gateway to the internet for an entire household. With that kind of access, the kind of havoc that could be wreaked is really just limited to the hacker's imagination.

Federal commission wants AT&T to pay $4 billion in fines for misleading DirecTV ads

AT&T DirecTV complaint, fine

The Federal Trade Commission has claimed during court proceedings that AT&T should pay $3.95 billion to settle a false-advertising lawsuit filed against DirecTV, the satellite TV subsidiary, back in 2015. The FTC says that DirecTV pulled a common trick, advertising one rate without making it clear that consumers were signing up for a two-year contract, with significant price hikes in the second year.

AT&T might start charging customers to keep their data private

AT&T Internet Privacy Charge

“Nice internet privacy you’ve got there! It'd be a shame if something bad were to happen to it.”

That’s the kind of line you’d expect in a mob movie from a thug looking for his weekly fee for protecting your privacy. In real life, AT&T can't be quite so conspicuous, but that's basically what the mobile carrier is considering doing, based on a recent interview with one of the executives on C-SPAN.

AT&T promises massive broadband investment if Trump gives it tax breaks

AT&T broadband investment Trump meeting

There's a tired old trick for internet service providers that want a tax break to continue gouging customers. The ISP will make some vague promise of future broadband investment, in return for immediate tax breaks or approval of an industry deal. On the surface, it sounds good: delivering broadband to rural areas is often uneconomic, so government often wants to cut a deal with private industry to deliver it.

But the problem is that internet providers seem to have a really tricky time keeping to their promises, and unexpected roadblocks just happen to always spring up right around the time the investment is meant to happen.

That's why AT&T's promise to President Trump that it ill invest $22 billion in new infrastructure -- in return for immediate tax cuts -- is so terribly worrying.

AT&T is basically giving away cable TV to wireless customers

AT&T DirecTV Now Deals

Late last year, AT&T launched DirecTV Now, a $35 streaming alternative to regular cable TV. In many ways, it's a standard cable TV package, but you watch it on a phone or a Chromecast, rather than a cable TV box.

Even though $35 is less than most cheap cable packages, it's still a whole bunch more money than avocado-eating millennials are used to spending on their Netflix subscription. Signups for the service clearly haven't been as high as AT&T would like, as it's been pushing promotions like free Apple TVs and a year of complimentary HBO ever since launch. Starting today there's a new promotion for AT&T's wireless customers, and it's pretty hard to beat.
