More and more people are choosing to ditch their expensive cable bill and move to cheaper and more flexible live streaming services like Hulu Live or PlayStation Vue. Another live TV streaming service from AT&T, DirecTV NOW, was recently rolled out to Roku devices this week. To help promote this, the company is offering a free one-month trial.
The live streaming TV service business is becoming a crowded place and a bit confusing. Not all services offer the same features or programming. Some have a better on-demand library. Access to some live events differs depending on your region. Also, not all services are supported on the devices. And finally, there is the matter of cost. Fortunately, each one offers a limited trial for you to try before you buy.
Free Month of DirecTV NOW for Roku
To get the free month offer, head to directvnow.com/roku and copy the promo code at the top of the page. Then click the Redeem & Stream button in the lower right corner and create your account.
Then select the plan you want. Since you’re getting this free for a month… might as well choose the “Gotta Have It” bundle as it offers the most channels. 😊
The most important thing to do when entering in your credit card info is to make sure you plug in the Promo Code. If you don’t, you will only get the 7-day trial.
Make sure to mark down the date the trial period ends if you want to cancel. Otherwise, you’ll automatically be charged the full amount on your credit card. Or… do like Jack and cancel the service right away after you sign-up. This way, you won’t get stuck with something you don’t want. If you like it, just renew it.
If you haven’t tried a live TV streaming service before, this is a good time to give one a try. Even if you end up canceling, it will give you an idea of what to expect and whether you would want to cut the cord. It’s also worth mentioning that, in addition to a Roku device, this free month trial works on all the devices DirecTV NOW supports.
I signed up for the free month and will be putting up a review of the service soon. But, after just a couple of days with it — I can’t say I’ve been too impressed.
