With DIRECTV STREAM, which makes its official debut today, you can enjoy Live TV, catch all your favorite sports and stay up-to-date on breaking news and On-Demand content in the same place, whether you are using a DIRECTV STREAM Device or on your own device. With DIRECTV STREAM, you can watch your favorite shows across all of your screens for one simple price with no term commitment.

The campaign features tennis champion and superstar Serena Williams mashed up with iconic films to bring to life the brand’s core features of having the best of both worlds - live and on-demand entertainment. The spot tackles the fragmented consumer experience today where they are left having to sacrifice either their live viewing experience or spend time browsing on-demand without enjoying their content.

Developed in partnership with creative agency TBWA\Chiat\Day LA, the creative platform is a call to consumers to un-complicate their entertainment lives. Over the rollout of the launch, the campaign will be supported by robust social, digital, OTT, connected TV, OOH, radio, an interactive game, and a comic book component, as well as traditional TV spots. Each element is designed to connect with fans in a new way to pay off the best of live and on-demand.
