You may remember that AT&T launched its standalone TV streaming service called DirecTV Now a few months back. The launch didn’t go smoothly however, because early subscribers had to put up with a lot of glitches. But of course things have improved since then and AT&T finally appears to be ready to offer some sort of compensation to its subscribers.
Those early DirecTV Now subscribers will be compensated with a free year’s worth of access to premium cable network HBO, which is not a bad way to be compensated at all.
If you were an early DirecTV Now subscriber you should check your email. You will find an email that reads, “We want to thank you for being one of our most valuable customers and coming on this unprecedented journey with us,” Blah blah blah free HBO.
AT&T is rewarding subscribers by adding a free year of HBO to their channel package. It isn’t just being offered to those who signed up for DirecTV Now back when it was first announced either. AT&T has extended it to everyone who signed up for DirecTV Now before March 6th. That is mighty nice of them. HBO normally costs an additional $5 on top of whatever your plan costs. So this has a $60 value and it’s valid until March 7th, 2018. Nice.
