New Features and New Channels Heading to DIRECTV NOW

DIRECTV NOW is really ramping up its service. Recently, it’s been announced that the AT&T owned company is looking to add more channels to their lineup. We can officially confirm that QVC will be one of those networks.

Upon updating their Restart feature, which allows you to start over on any show that you would like, DIRECTV NOW posted a list of channels that will support this particular feature. On this list is where QVC’s name was discovered.

QVC may seem like a random choice to add to a streaming service lineup, but the network generates $9 billion annually. Its 24 hour of sales from kitchen appliances to collector’s coins has been a staple in home shopping since 1986 and shows little to no signs of slowing down.

Along with the Restart feature, DIRECTV NOW will also offer 72-hour rewind. This allows you to catch up with a show that you missed within three days of its initial airing.

Here’s a list of channels supporting this new feature:

&E  AUDIENCE™ Network    AXS TV BET
Cartoon Network East CMT CNN Comedy Central
Cooking Channel DIY Food Network FX
FXX FYI GalaVision Hallmark
Hallmark Movies & Mysteries HGTV History HLN (Headline News)
Lifetime MTV MTV2 National Geographic
Nat Geo Wild Nickelodeon East Spike TBS
TCM  TNT Travel Channel truTV
TV Land UniMas Univision East Viceland
 VH1
