It’s a deal that the company has previously offered to customers on the $90 Unlimited Plus plan, which offers HD streaming, 10GB of tethering, free HBO, and no speed cap — unlike the cheaper Unlimited Choice plan.
The new $10 deal for Unlimited Choice customers comes in the form of a $25-per-month video credit that starts after three billing cycles. When applied to the base-level $35-a-month DirecTV Now plan, that credit works out to the promised $10-per-month price point. Unlimited Plus customers can also apply that credit to a pricier plan or AT&T’s DirecTV or U-verse TV services instead, should they prefer more conventional TV options.
The base $35-a-month “Live a Little” plan offers over 60 channels, including AMC, FX, SyFy, USA, CNN, Fox, ABC, NBC, TNT, and more. That isn’t a bad deal for $10 extra, assuming you’re looking for an over-the-top TV service.
Correction: Unlimited Choice customers can only use the $25-per-month video credit on DirecTV Now. Only Unlimited Plus customers can use the credit for other AT&T TV services instead of DirecTV Now.
