Here Are The DIRECTV NOW Launch Deals

directv-now-logo-blkAs 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).

    Update: Internet Explorer works in Directv Now if you you like an old grainy VHS video tape quality picture. AT&T must have some of the worse engineers in the business or they
    actually want the service to fail.

    You are being reserved in your comments about Directv Now. The problems I have encountered are horrific and I am not exaggerating. I signed up for the free Apple TV offer and 3 months of service. The first thing I learned after signing up was I could expect to get the Apple TV in 2 – 3 weeks! So what do I do in the meantime? There is no Roku app, so I would have to use my computer. It will not run on Mac 10.7 so I thought I would use one of my Windows PC’s . The first thing I discovered was I could not run it in Firefox and I would need to use Internet Explorer or Chrome. I installed Chrome and after doing multiple system updates I was able to get a fairly decent picture, albeit with frequent mini freezes of the audio and or video. Then today Directv Now pulled the rug from under me . Something they did overnight caused Chrome to stop working . I got into a chat with the so called tech support and when I mentioned the error code, the guy said Wow you must be using Chrome , I thought they would have gotten that fixed by now. He then said try Internet Explorer I understand that is working now. Paying to be a beta tester no matter what kind of “free” deals they offer is no good if you can’t watch the service!
