Earlier today, the Uncarrier announced that they will be offering DIRECTV NOW as a way to get more customers currently on AT&T to switch to T-Mobile. So, starting tomorrow December 16th, this offer will start. Cool thing is, that the DIRECTV NOW will be free for one year.
The deal is that you have a minimum of two lines (at least one being a voice line) with T-Mobile on the T-Mobile One rate plan, but only one phone number needs to be from AT&T. T-Mobile will then give you a $35 bill credit for 12 months, equaling up to $420 as long as the lines are active. A few things to keep in mind if you are an AT&T customer looking to possibly switch over… The $35 bill credit may take two to three billing cycles to kick in. You cannot combine this offer with carrier freedom, so don’t expect T-Mobile to pay off your ETF or lease fee, and you cannot combine this offer with the $200 port in or Google Pixel offer.
John Legere left a short note about DIRECTV
“AT&T wants you to think DIRECTV is theirs exclusively, but that’s a load of crap. Both DIRECTV NOW and the DIRECTV apps stream free on T-Mobile with a faster, more advanced network that covers nearly every American. AT&T is so distracted by their new businesses and DIRECTV that they continue to ignore their 110 million wireless customers. Luckily, the Un-carrier’s here to show them how to actually take care of customers!
DIRECTV NOW will also be added to the list of video streaming services for Binge On for those that are still on the Simple Choice rate plans, so don’t expect DIRECTV NOW to count against your data bucket. For further information feel free to visit T-Mobile’s website.
This is a limited time deal, so there is no end date at the moment, but what are your thoughts about T-Mobile offering DIRECTV and getting more AT&T customers to switch over? Let us know by dropping your comments down below, or on Google+, Facebook, or Twitter.Source: T-Mobile
