As of now they have not listed any channel list yet.  They did say they are 
about 90% ready and want to start presale this fall.  One article mentioned 
might not launch until first part of 2017?

I just put this page up:

Tired of comparing packages.  It needs lots of work.  I would like to change 
the x marks out to some code reflecting which packages have that channel.  Like 
to make the table sortable etc.  Do we have a DTV channel lineup yet?

Featuring "very, very aggressive price points," the service is said to include 
more than 100 premium channels and will come in app form on smartphones, 
tablets, and set-top boxes, although the specifics of the launch were kept to a 
minimum.

Well if they can transition 90% of their people to streaming they can sell off 
their space segment.
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?
