Watching AT&T TV or AT&T TV NOW? Know which internet speeds and video options to use to make the most of your viewing experience.


Internet speed

Internet download speed can affect your viewing experience. We suggest these internet download speeds for each stream of AT&T TVSM:
  • Home Wi-Fi® or wired connection - Speeds of 8Mbps or more deliver the best quality. So, if you’re watching on your home internet on 3 devices, you should have at least 24Mbps of internet speed available. If you’re bundling with AT&T Internet, we recommend the Internet 25 plan or higher for watching on up to 3 streams.
  • Mobile data - 150Kbps to 2.5Mbps are ideal speeds for standard-definition streaming. 2.5 to 7.5Mbps are best for high-definition quality.

Not sure how much speed you have? Test your internet speed

Have AT&T TV NOWSM? Speeds of 12Mbps per stream (or higher) deliver the best quality.

Good to know: You may require higher speeds if you watch multiple streams and use 3rd party apps, surf the internet, or stream in 4K at the same time.
