Problem with a deal? Let us know.

If you feel like your pay TV bill is too expensive, AT&T and DirecTV have a trio of new streaming services that can help you save money.

In fact, you could wind up paying as little as $5.99 a month or maybe even FREE for all the streaming content you want!

Introducing the future of TV…

DirecTV Now

Beginning November 30, you can sign up for a new service called DirecTV Now.

For just $35 a month, you’ll be able to stream 60+ channels of your favorite live sports, on demand programming, premium channels, popular shows and hit movies right to your mobile device.

And for a limited time only, the $35 monthly fee will get you access to an additional 40+ channels that would otherwise cost you extra each month!

DirectTV Now and the other two services listed below all work with Android devices and tablets, iPhone, iPad and Apple TV, Amazon Fire and Fire TV Stick, Chromecast (Android on launch, iOS 2017), Internet Explorer, Chrome and Safari browsers and more.

By next year, DirecTV Now reportedly will be compatible with Roku, Amazon Fire tablets and Smart TVs from Samsung and other popular brands.

Much like T-Mobile’s Binge On, DirecTV Now will allow AT&T Mobility customers to watch as much video as they want on their phones and not have it count against a data cap!


Is a $35 entry point too expensive for you?

If you’re on a tight budget, perhaps you’d like the FullScreen service instead.

For just $5.99 a month, you’ll have access to more than 1,500 hours of ad-free premium scripted and unscripted original series, TV shows and films licensed from studio partners.

While details on programming are still emerging, the FullScreen website shows screenshots of popular movies like “Kill Bill” and “The Blair Witch Project,” along with TV shows such as Dawson’s Creek, How I Met Your Mother, Chappelle’s Show, Shane and Friends, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and more.

And here’s a real bonus offer: AT&T Mobility customers can get Fullscreen at no charge for 12 months with eligible new and existing wireless plans with messaging service.

Just like with DirecTV Now, you’ll also be able to stream the Fullscreen App on the AT&T mobile network without using any data!


Maybe $5.99 is still too expensive for you. Well, how does FREE sound to your wallet?

Few details are available on this service, but a press release says FreeView will be a “highly curated, always-fresh, ad-supported video service” with on-demand content from AUDIENCE Network, Otter Media properties and other channels on DIRECTV NOW.

You just have to download the DirecTV Now app to access FreeView and start streaming for free. (Data charges may apply if you are not an eligible postpaid AT&T Mobility customer.)

Free—now that’s a price everybody likes!
