AT&T and CBS Corp. have reached a new agreement to carry CBS, Showtime, The CW, Pop and CBS Sports Network on AT&T's DirectTV Now live TV streaming service, according to a press release from CBS.

All networks in the deal will be available to stream live, with much of their programming available on demand as well, the press release stated. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

"For any bundle to be truly successful, CBS is must-have content, and we are happy that AT&T will bring our hit programming to their DirecTV Now offering,” Ray Hopkins, president of Television Networks Distribution at CBS Corp., said in a statement. “This agreement fits perfectly into our strategy to deliver industry-leading content to viewers across multiple platforms and screens."

DirecTV Now will feature live streaming of CBS-owned local television stations in many of the largest U.S. markets at launch, according to the release, with all affiliates of CBS and The CW having the opportunity to participate going forward.
