DIRECTV NOW has a brand new promotion for those that are looking to check out the service, and that is pre-paying for a month of service and you'll get a Roku Streaming Stick from DIRECTV NOW. That's a great deal, seeing as it is pretty much the same price as buying a Roku Streaming Stick on your own, but you are getting a month of DIRECTV NOW as well. The service starts at $35/month, so you can get the Roku Streaming Stick for as low as $35.
With DIRECTV NOW, you'll be able to watch all of the playoff games in the NBA and NHL, as they lead to the NBA Finals and the Stanley Cup Finals in June. All of the games are on ESPN/ABC networks and NBC networks respectively, all of which are available on DIRECTV NOW, so you can watch the games at home, or elsewhere. Seeing as you are able to watch DIRECTV NOW on your TV, or your smartphone, or even your tablet. You can really watch it from just about anywhere. DIRECTV NOW has a ton of channels available, starting with around 60 channels for $35/month and going up to 120 channels for $70/month, which is a great deal here. DIRECTV NOW also offers up some premium channels like HBO for just $5/month which is actually cheaper than anywhere else - including HBO's own streaming service.
The way that this deal works is, new users (unfortunately this doesn't work for current users) will need to sign up at the link below. Users will need to skip the seven day free trial, as that is not available with this promotion. You will pre-pay for one month of DIRECTV NOW, and then you are able to request your Roku Streaming Stick. Once DIRECTV NOW approves the request, your Roku Streaming Stick will be mailed out. This is said to take up to six weeks, but it usually takes around a week to 10 days - depending on how backed up DIRECTV NOW is. And if you don't want to continue with DIRECTV NOW, make sure to cancel your account before the 30 days are up. Then you have a free Roku Streaming Stick or a free month of DIRECTV NOW.
