DirecTV for Business Gets an Upgrade

AT&T has introduced an upgraded version of DirecTV for business customers, including hotels, that features a large lineup of HD channels, 4K capabilities and multiscreen access.  

The third-gen platform, called COM3000, supports up to 138 HD channels (along with select programming in 4K and HDR formats), and lets business owners tack on their own in-house and OTT channels.  

In addition to TVs, COM3000 is also capable of supporting smartphones and tablets, select smart TVs and third-party set-top boxes. The service can also be delivered on a range of access infrastructures, including coax, Ethernet and WiFi, AT&T said.  

AT&T launched COM3000 at this week’s Hospitality Industry Technology Exposition & Conference, happening this week in Houston. Here’s a sampling of other announcements made HITEC:
