Reports from several reliable sources indicate that the growth of the latest streaming of AT&T®, DirecTV Now® is getting a bit slow. However, we cannot count DirecTV Now® out yet because AT&T® is planning to implement a few steps to attract more customers towards the streaming service.
In a recent announcement, the officials from AT&T® announced that they would be expanding their distribution strategy for DirecTV Now® by bundling it with their Unlimited Choice plan for just $10 a month. Note that AT&T® is one of the best internet providers in the country, and this latest move from the telecom giant would entice subscribers to switch carriers for sure.
AT&T® has also been offering some of the best and cheap internet deals to their customers in order to prevent the loss of subscribers, and experts believe that the move might help the telecom company to boost their DirecTV Now® subscriber base. However, the promotion was originally offered only in the Unlimited Plus plan of AT&T®, which is the $90 each month package that provides unlimited talk and text, data, free HBO, high-def video and 10 GB of Wi-Fi tethering per phone. The downfall of this unlimited offering was that the internet speed was significantly reduced once customers exceed 22 GB of data usage per line.
The unlimited data plan offered by AT&T® is actually a step down from the $60 a month plan when we consider the account discounts for paperless billing and auto-pay. This package offers maximum internet speed of 3 Mbps, unlimited text, data, and talk, and offers standard definition video streaming. However, internet speed will still be reduced once the user consumes more than 22 GB in a month.
The newly proposed $10 deal for AT&T’s streaming service consists of a $25 video credit, which makes the cost of subscribing to the service just $10 a month on top of the wireless bill of users. However, customers could also check out the basic package offered by DirecTV Now®, “Live a Little” under the new deal.
“Live a Little” is actually a pretty much decent bundle offering and it offers customers access to over 60 channels including some broadcast networks like Fox, NBC, and ABC in select markets. In addition to that, there are also a number of popular cable channels such as CNN, CNBC, Bloomberg, A&E, AMC, BBC, and many others. This plan is available to customers for just $35 a month.
