AT&T and StayCast bring Google Chromecast to more hotel rooms

Hotels are notorious for blocking guests' ability to connect their own devices to in-room TVs, and that includes streaming sticks and Google Chromecast devices. AT&T is helping change this alongside SONIFI Solutions' StayCast, allowing hotels with DirecTV service to order StayCast for their rooms. Hotels that take advantage of this will enable guests to cast content from their phone or tablet to their hotel room's television.

Galaxy S8 and S8+ red tint fix arrives on AT&T

The red tint fix for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ smartphones is rolling out now on AT&T. Galaxy S8 owners on the network should check for an update to see if it has arrived yet; once it does, users will be able to manually adjust the colors on their display, decreasing the amount of red on affected displays.

AT&T Galaxy S6, S6 edge, S6 Active get Android 7.0 Nougat

With all the attention being lavished on the Galaxy S8, you'd presume that Samsung and carriers have probably forgotten about older devices. That is especially true if said device is about 2 years old. Barely making it to the cut, the Galaxy S6 family, launched in 2015, got their Android Nougat update way back in March. That is, at least the European ones. Catching up before it forgets, AT&T is finally rolling out the same update to the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, and Galaxy S6 Active.

iPad owners on AT&T's related unlimited data plan -- the ones who are grandfathered in, that is -- are on the receiving end of some disappointing emails.

The throttling will go into effect starting on May 24, and it will only take place during 'periods of network congestion,' according to AT&T.

AT&T’s unlimited data plan now includes free HBO

When it comes to competition between the big four carriers in the US, AT&T's unlimited plan initially left a lot to be desired. Even after making some improvements, it was still difficult to call AT&T's plan the best. The company is looking to sweeten the pot even more today by tossing a free subscription to HBO into the mix.

ISPs promise not to sell customers’ personal browsing history

ISPs promise not to sell customers’ personal browsing history

As you've likely heard by now, Congress voted earlier this week to reverse FCC rules that prevented internet service providers from selling personal customer data like browsing history. Understandably, many Americans are upset by this. Now several ISPs like Comcast, AT&T, and Verizon are getting proactive in reassuring customers that their privacy matters, releasing statements that say they will not be selling users' internet browsing data.

AT&T extends DirecTV NOW’s free HBO perk to new customers

AT&T extends DirecTV NOW’s free HBO perk to new customers

Earlier this month, AT&T introduced a special perk for its existing DirecTV NOW subscribers: a bill credit or, depending on their subscription tier, a year of free HBO service. That was great for those who signed up before March 6, but not so much for those who were previously on the fence about signing up. Now the company has announced an extension of the perk, giving new customers the same year of access to that premium channel.
