AT&T joins the mobile OTT march alongside Verizon, T-Mobile

AT&T (NYSE: T) plans to launch a mobile video service in January, the carrier's CEO, Randall Stephenson, told attendees at the UBS Global Media and Communications Conference. That lines up the wireless provider against Verizon (NYSE: VZ), with its Go90 over-the-top service, and T-Mobile (NYSE:TMUS), which offers Binge On, a mobile OTT aggregation service.

The key to offering this service comes from its recent acquisition of DirecTV. Stephenson said that the deal included a combination of mobile and "stacking" rights which will enable AT&T to stream full seasons of current TV series, including the latest episodes.
