As you may have heard AT&T launched DIRECTV NOW, a new internet TV service that doesn’t require a long term contract, a service agreement with a cable company, or any fancy equipment. All it requires is a decent internet connection and device to view on.
Starting at $35 per month for over 60 channels, the new service has several deals we thought you should know about. If you’re thinking about jumping aboard, now is the best time.
A Free 7-Day Trial
Want to just try out DIRECTV NOW before buying? AT&T is offering a free 7-day trial. All you need is an email address and credit card on file. After the 7 days, you’ll be billed $35 per month (a special for their 100+ channel plan). By the way, you can also try out HBO and Cinemax for 7 days, and if you decide to keep each network they cost $5 each per month.
Free Apple TV 4th Generation
Been thinking about upgrading your Apple TV device? Those who sign up for DIRECTV NOW and pre-pay 3 months will get a free 4th Generation Apple TV (32GB model). The deal expires March 31, 2017.
