AT&T customers will get an unexpected refund on their next bill

AT&T Refunds

Hell doesn't appear to be freezing over and it's definitely not April 1st, so I guess this story is actually true. More than 2.7 million AT&T customers will be getting refunds on their bill credits in the next two months, as the Federal Trade Commission settles an issue over AT&T billing for "premium text message services" without the consent of customers.

AT&T Is Full of Shit

AT&T and Time Warner Cable’s top brass met with a US Senate antitrust panel on Wednesday to argue that the proposed $85 billion merger of the two companies would help competition rather than hurt it. This sounds like a big, steamy pile of bullshit.

DirecTV Now CBS

AT&T's DirecTV Now online streaming service is one of the best deals in the industry, but without CBS, it still feels incomplete.

The FCC thinks the best feature of AT&T’s new streaming TV plan is illegal

DirecTV Now Launch

Ever since AT&T announced that it was launching a $35 TV plan with unlimited mobile streaming for AT&T customers, the FCC has been all over the company's case.

In a first letter, the FCC laid out its problems with AT&T's "zero rating" policy and how it violates the principle of net neutrality. In a response, AT&T said (paraphrasing a little here) "nah, we thought about it, but it's all good." The FCC's response? Not so fast.

AT&T now has a bad version of T-Mobile’s unlimited Netflix plan

AT&T Stream Saver
One of T-Mobile's headline features in its self-titled "war on cell carriers" is the Binge On feature, which allows you unlimited video streaming from most services like Netflix and YouTube. The tradeoff is that the video only streams in standard definition, rather than HD. AT&T has decided to copy Binge On with a new program called Stream Saver -- only, it's missing the most important (and alluring) part of the Binge On deal.

Netflix’s CEO is worried about what AT&T’s merger means for the internet

Netflix data usage
Netflix and AT&T/Time Warner are set to go to war. Fresh from its $80 billion takeover of Time Warner, AT&T has announced an internet-only streaming service, DirecTV, that is aimed squarely at Netflix subscribers. That would always be seen as a threat by Netflix CEO Reed Hastings. But after AT&T's takeover of Time Warner, the company now owns big-name content producers like HBO and CNN, and the internet pipes that deliver those to the consumer. That's a dangerous combination.

Galaxy Note 7 Explosions Fires
The Galaxy Note 7 is not cancelled, at least not yet. Samsung decided to suspend production to investigate new explosion reports further, but there’s no official decision to terminate the smartphone. However, US carriers confirmed they will not continue to sell the phone in stores, or offer “safe” replacements to customers for the time being. Galaxy Note 7 buyers can still exchange their phones, whether they’re faulty or “safe,” for a different device of their choosing.
