Directv Now

Directv Now
« on: February 16, 2018, 12:03:18 PM »
I recently dropped Spectrum for my cable needs and have gone to directv now which is a streaming option without contracts. It is a month to month service, I prepaid my first 3 months and got a free 4k apple tv. My previous cable bill was $55 a month, and an additional $15 for HBO now. With directv now I pay $35 for the cable plan which has all the channels I had with spectrum, I also added HBO for $5, Cinemax for $5 and Showtime for $8. So previously I was paying $70 a month for my cable needs, now I pay $53, have more movie channels and access to the service anywhere I go. If your looking for a cord cutting option I would suggest checking this out.

I looked at Direct TV and the offering did not look bad. If I was not getting such a good deal from our local company (cable and internet combined) I would consider using Direct TV.

I signed up for the promotion.   I look at it in reverse; I got an Apple TV 4K for just $105, and free Directv Now for three months.

I use Roku Ultra's. They are only $89 delivered. Seem to do a good job with streaming.
