DirecTV Now, AT&T’s live streaming TV competitor to Sling TV and PS Vue, was introduced with a promotional $35 monthly “Go Big” plan that includes more than 100 channels. That pricing is about to change.
AT&T only knocked down the price of the premium plan in an effort to attract new subscribers but, beginning January 9, it’ll move back up to its originally planned pricing. It’s a bizarre move because, in my own experience with the service, AT&T DirecTV Now is still very unreliable. I can hardly watch TV during primetime without it cutting out and sending me an error, for example. You’d think AT&T would have the bugs worked out before it boosted the price.
Just get PS Vue
In any case, you have until January 9 to sign up for the “Go Big” plan at the $35 monthly price before AT&T bumps it up to its standard $60/month price. I can’t really recommend the service right now given how unreliable it is, but if you trust that AT&T will work out the kinks and want the better price, then grab it while you can.
If pricing isn’t much of a concern to you, go check out PS Vue. It’s much more reliable, offers CBS for live sports in some markets, is supported on more platforms, features a great UI and has recording functions.
