DirecTV Now Deal Gives Prepayers A Free Apple TV 4K
AT&T has just announced an eye-catching deal designed to entice customers to DirecTV Now: A free Apple TV 4K box for anyone who prepays for four months of its TV streaming service.
Given that DirecTV Now costs $35 a month, pre-paying for four months of the service would cost you a grand total of $140. Which looks like a pretty attractive proposition when that $140 is not only bagging you four months’ worth of access to DirecTV Now’s 60-plus live channels and thousands of on-demand titles, but also a $179 Apple TV 4K box.
In fact, you could sign up for the deal, never watch DirecTV Now and still come away having scored a $39 discount on a 32GB Apple TV 4K.
The latest Apple TV is far and away Apple’s most exciting TV oriented product to date. In particular, as its name suggests it’s the first Apple TV to support both 4K-resolution and high dynamic range video. What’s more, it backs up this move to far better picture quality with a strong selection of 4K HDR movies on iTunes.
All this beautiful 4K HDR content is sold for the same price as iTunes’ mere high definition, standard dynamic range movies, too.
Obviously you’ll need a 4K, HDR-ready television if you want to get the best picture quality and value from both DirecTV Now and the Apple TV 4K box. But the deal is so good that even people with HD-only TVs will surely be tempted.
The new free Apple TV 4K deal from DirecTV Now joins a couple of other offers, too. With the platform’s first birthday right around the corner, for instance, AT&T is offering a special birthday deal that allows new customers to get $25 knocked off the first month’s payment for any DirecTV Now package, using the BDAY2017 promo code. Or you can opt to prepay for two months of any DirecTV Now package and get a free Roku Streaming Stick.
