DIRECTV NOW has taken one of its more recent promotions, and made it even better. For the past month, DIRECTV NOW has been giving out Amazon Fire TV's when you pre-pay for two months of the service. Now that promotion has expired, but it's back. Instead of pre-paying for two months to get an Amazon Fire TV, you only need to pre-pay for a single month of DIRECTV NOW to get an Amazon Fire TV on them.
The DIRECTV NOW service starts at $35 per month and goes all the way up to $70. It's a pretty great streaming TV service, though like many newer streaming services, it does have a few issues with its service. Especially when watching during popular programming times (like the Super Bowl), it does seem to have issues with buffering and such. But AT&T and DIRECTV have been working to fix those issues, as well as bring in some new features like DVR. For $35/month, you will get around 60 channels or so, for you to stream virtually anywhere. DIRECTV NOW is available on Android, iOS, Chromecast, Roku, Apple TV and Fire TV. Unfortunately, it doesn't yet work on Android TV, but it should in the very near future.
In order to get your Amazon Fire TV from DIRECTV NOW, you do need to be a new customer (you can always sign up with a different email address). You also cannot sign up for a free trial, but instead sign up like normal and pay for a month of the service. Once you have signed up, you can submit paperwork to get your Amazon Fire TV, which should arrive within about six weeks. DIRECTV NOW says it'll arrive within six weeks, but it'll typically arrive sooner, within a couple of weeks or less in most cases. Once your month of DIRECTV NOW service is up, you can cancel your service and still be eligible for the Amazon Fire TV. So essentially, you're getting an Amazon Fire TV for around $35. That's good for about half of its regular price tag, which makes it a really great deal, even if you do need to jump through a few hoops.
