AT&T bundles unlimited data plan and DirecTV Now for as low as $70 a month

DirecTV Now is an app that allows you to stream more than 60 live channels. Priced at $35 a month, the app has not generated the kind of revenue that AT&T was hoping for. Now, AT&T is offering those who are subscribers to its $60 a month Unlimited Choice wireless plan, the opportunity to subscribe to DirecTV Now for just $10 month after a $25 a month coupon. This bundle gives you unlimited data and all of the "Live A Little" content from DirecTV Now for just $70 a month.

Here are some of the specifics of the $70 bundle:

  • On AT&T Unlimited Choice a single line starts at $60 a month after AutoPay and paperless bill discount.
  • The DIRECTV NOW Live a Little package is only $10 more after a $25 per month DIRECTV NOW video credit.
  • Live a Little includes 60+ top TV channels and over 10,000 on-demand shows and movies. On DIRECTV NOW users can stream from a phone or tablet, or watch in HD on a TV using a compatible device over your home internet. No annual contracts, no hardware.
  • AT&T Unlimited Choice customers get unlimited data with a max speed of 3Mbps and SD video streaming (about 480p) on our LTE network.

Some things we need to point out. AT&T's Unlimited Choice caps data speeds at 3Mbps and video streaming at 480p. Nothing spectacular about that. Keep in mind that those using 22GB of more of data in any given month could find their data speed throttled during periods of heavy cell traffic.

AT&T Unlimited Plus customers can use their $25 monthly credit toward video credit for DirecTV, DirecTV Now or U-verse TV. In addition, the premium Unlimited Plus plan, which costs $90 a month, includes the ability to stream HBO on your AT&T device, and receive 10GB of high speed data per line for tethering from a smartphone.

Both AT&T Unlimited Choice and Unlimited Choice Plus plans allow you to add a tablet or other connected device for $20 a month. You can also make unlimited calls and use your data in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. And texts can be sent from the states to over 120 countries.

If you love streaming video, this could be the package for you. Visit your local AT&T store or click on this link.

I tried direct TV now and it and honestly the app wasn't up to par for me buffered alot. I use PlayStation Vue now which doesn't have that problem but I'm going to try Hulu live stream and Google's here soon.

I wish I could set speed caps on my kids. Unlimited data at 56k! Now do your chores and we'll talk about megabytes.

I love directv now, on my tv it buffers a bit for the first 2 or 3 min then it plays flawlessly until you change the station, then it buffers for the first 2 or 3 min then ..... i used 12 gig of wifi date watching it all day which is well within my limits. Im watching monk now which i could find nowhere before except for poor youtube streams. Directtv now is a dream come true. if you had it before it might be time to give it another chance cause things improve when they get the bugs ironed out. I get 66 channels from the 60 channel tier and most of them offer what i want to watch. Its like christmas. * The bad part is i have to move back to my tmobile $30 plan cause it has directv on binge now so i can stream all i want on my phone without having it count against my data. * I am not affilliated with either directv or att.I dont get local channels but local channels here suck anyway.

If you have AT&T, then DirecTV Now doesn't count against your Data Limit either. Its part of the Data-Free TV along with DirecTV and Uverse.
