AT&T intros combined wireless and TV service plans following DirecTV acquisition
Following its acquisition of DirecTV just a few days ago, AT&T is already starting to introduce combined plans that incorporate both wireless and TV service.
Starting Monday, August 10th, this new offer will include HD and DVR service for up to four television receivers (through DirecTV or U-verse), unlimited talk, text and 10GB of shared 4G LTE data for four wireless lines for a flat rate of $200 per month. This offer applies to new customers only, and you’ll need to sign up for a one or two-year contract between August 10th and November 14th in order to get the promotional pricing. Although this may seem a bit pricey for some, AT&T says this promo can save you $600 or more in the first 12 months of signing up.
If you’re not keen on taking advantage of that specific deal, the mobile carrier is also offering some decent promotions on select DirecTV plans. The new All in One plans listed below will get you access to television service only, with the option to choose between DirecTV or U-verse.
- DirecTV Select or U-verse U-Family, $50 per month
- DirecTV Xtra or U-verse U-200, $70
- DirecTV Ultimate or U-verse U-300, $75
- DirecTV Premiere or U-verse U-450, $125
If you’d like to add wireless service to any of the promo plans listed above, that will run you an additional $160 per month for unlimited talk, text and 10GB of 4G LTE data shared between four lines. Customers who combine television and wireless service will also be eligible for a $10 “combined bill discount”. Additionally, the carrier is also offering DirecTV and U-verse customers who switch from their current wireless service provider a $300 bill credit when they purchase a smartphone through AT&T’s Next program and trade in their current smartphone.
All in all, this can get pretty pricey when you combine your wireless and television services, though the added benefit of paying just one bill will likely attract some users to the program. For more information on these promotional plans, check out the source link below.
