AT&T has announced that it is planning to guarantee the price of a new DirecTV subscription for a couple of years for those subscribers who decide to combine it with any one of the wireless carrier’s new or current services, such as wireless or home Internet. In this deal, subscribers will be made to pay the regular $50 a month fee for DirecTV. Users who decide to bundle it with home Internet can enjoy connection speeds of up to 6 mbps, if they are game with paying an extra $30 each month.
Beginning April 14th of this year, the plans will start to become available with the pricing guaranteed for two years. Built into the costing of the plan are monthly fees for equipment, which include up to four TV receivers, plus a Wi-Fi gateway for those also getting home Internet. According to AT&T, subscribers will get to enjoy unlimited home Internet (upgraded from 250 gigabytes a month for most individual home Internet plans) if they opt to pay for both services via one bill.
It appears that AT&T is really making an effort to convince customers to sign up for DirecTV. This latest move makes sense especially when one considers how much the wireless carrier has invested in acquiring the TV service (bought in July of last year for a sum of $49 billion). The timing is also interesting, with the rising number of consumers ending their pay TV services or choosing not to subscribe at all.
With DirecTV part of its arsenal, AT&T has put itself in a really nice position to offer bundles of wireless services, home Internet, and home phone deals. But competition is tough, with industry leader Verizon Wireless also offering its own Fios Internet service to be bundled with its regular mobile services.
In January early this year, AT&T resurrected its unlimited data plans for users who also subscribe to its DirecTV or U-Verse TV service. But as made clear by the second biggest wireless carrier in the United States, the new plans mentioned earlier will have an effect on the revived unlimited data deal.
AT&T is also looking to decrease the price of its home voice service to $10 a month, for a couple of years, when bundled with two other services. Subscribers who take advantage of this offer will to enjoy savings of over 40 percent when bundling a trio of services (i.e. triple play).
