AT&T said existing DirecTV Now customers can keep their current lineup of channels if they want to, but the price of those plans will increase by $10 a month. Learn more on AT&T’s website.

These changes come shortly after Hulu with Live TV raised its base plan to $44.99 per month.

If you don’t want HBO, DirecTV Now’s new plans may not be the best for your wallet. In addition to Hulu with Live TV, plans from YouTube TV, Sling TV and PlayStation Vue are under $50 per month.

The great thing about streaming TV services is that there are no contracts. If you’re not happy with your provider, you can cancel whenever you want and switch to a competitor.
