The Samsung Galaxy View tablet will reportedly sell for $99.99 on AT&T beginning on Nov. 20.

Tech Times wrote that AT&T has become the first U.S. carrier to offer the 18.4-inch tablet.

"The Samsung Galaxy View is the best parts of a TV and tablet, designed with entertainment as its primary focus," said Jeff Bradley, senior vice president of Device Marketing and Developer Services for AT&T Mobility. "We know our customers are watching video in ways they never used to, and with this tablet you can shift where and when content is consumed. No other Samsung device provides this combination of integrated entertainment experience and value."

Those interested in purchasing Samsung's new device from the carrier need to sign up for new DirecTV service with a two-year contract, Tech Times added. For those who are already subscribed to DirecTV, AT&T is also offering the Galaxy View for $99.99 with a new two-year contract and a purchase of a new mobile device on AT&T Next.

If you do not wish to sign up for DirecTV, AT&T's Galaxy View can be purchased for $499.99 with a new two-year contract, the news outlet noted.

Android Headlines also reported that the Galaxy View will head to Canada, but will only be available on Bell for now. The tablet will be priced $699 in Canada's Bell, and will come with the carrier's Fiber TV app pre-installed, which means that Bell TV customers can watch live TV on the tablet through the app itself even without an extra set-top box made exclusively for the tablet.

Samsung Galaxy View -- Specifications & Features

Samsung's Galaxy View has a full HD 1920 x 1080 screen display. Powering the device is the tech giant's Exynos7580 Octa-core 1.6Ghz. Other notable specs are its 2GB RAM, 32GB ROM, Android 5.1 Lollipop, a Li-Ion 5,700 mAh battery, and 2.1-megapixel front camera, Samsung's official site listed. The device also supports the latest version of Bluetooth and a SIM card slot.

CNET wrote that despite the Galaxy View's mostly plastic body, the tablet is "too heavy to carry around for a long time." The built-in stand is functional, but it appears cheap and somewhat unstable.

The apps that are showcased on the tablet's home screen for U.S. users include Netflix, Hulu, MGo Premium Movies and TV, CNN for Samsung, History, CBS, Showtime Anytime, Lifetime, NBC Sports Live Extra, PBS Kids, Watch ESPN, YouTube, Crackle, Twitch, and AOL.On, CNET listed. The U.K. and Australian users will get apps specific to their countries.
