Are the packages identical on streaming to the satellite?

Streaming only, just like slingtv

AT&T believes it can offer something more attractive. The company plans
to initially go after the 20 million households with no pay TV
subscription, Stephenson said.

When asked if DirecTV Now could threaten its DirecTV satellite business,
Stephenson (CEO) acknowledged some risk. But "that's a good sign," he said.

"If you don't see them threatening your legacy products, 99 percent of
the time they don't go anywhere," he said. "It means you found something
the market really wants."

Too lazy to go to the link.

Is this streaming only or do you have to be a satellite customer?
