Taylor Swift is set to have her own TV show on a new streaming service from US telecoms company AT&T.
It was announced back in October that the company had teamed up with Swift for “a major, exclusive multi-year, multi-faceted deal featuring performances and content”. The deal includes a AT&T-sponsored pre-Super Bowl gig in Houston, Texas next February. Reacting to the news on Twitter at the time, Swift said that “this is gonna be fun”.
Now AT&T has launched new streaming service DirecTV Now and teased a new show called Taylor Swift Now, promising “unique and never seen videos”. Watch a teaser clip below.

Swift recently extended her publishing deal with Sony/ATV, while it has also been reported that she is back in the studio.
Meanwhile, Taylor Swift has reportedly recruited Drake to help her create an “edgier” new album. The pair are said to be working together on “different” but “catchy” new music. The Sun claims to have been informed that their new music is inspired by hip-hop and R&B.
The tabloid quotes an unnamed source as saying: “Taylor is always looking at ways to grow as an artist and really wants to try something different and unexpected for the next album. She’s not afraid of experimenting so is working with a lot of different faces to see if she suits a new sound.”
The unnamed source is also quoted as saying: “The remix of her song ‘Bad Blood’ had a less pop vibe — especially once Kendrick Lamar featured on it — and was a big hit. So she thinks her fans will like her going in this direction.”
“Drake has been her friend for a while and it seemed a no-brainer that she would spend time in the studio with him. As well as writing with Taylor, he’s producing a few tracks and even lent his vocals to one song. It’s a real mix of edgier hip-hop and R&B sounds.”
