AT&T’s unlimited options include the Unlimited Plus, a high end plan that comes with a price of $90, and Unlimited Choice, a more affordable plan at $60 (but with connection speeds limited to 3 mbps and video content streamed at 480p standard def). These options are not bad, but in the ongoing unlimited data wars, no deal ever remains the same for long, because one’s rivals will always try to one up the latest offer.
For those interested in signing up for AT&T’s DirecTV Now service, know that the major US wireless carrier is giving you a subscription to HBO, free of charge, for a whole year. But wait -- in order to avail of this freebie, you will have to subscribe to the 100 channel Go Big package for $60 per month, or sign up for the 120 channel Gotta Have It option for $70 per month. This deal is good until March 30th of this year.
Just a few days ago, Verizon Wirelessannounced that they would be offering a new unlimited data plan. Shortly after, T-Mobile responded by adjusting its unlimited plan so it could keep up with what Verizon was offering. Sprint didn't take too long to join in on the trend by improving the unlimited data plan it was already offering. So where does that leave AT&T?
T-Mobile is at it again. The third biggest wireless carrier in the United States is once again launching a new promotional deal that takes a dig at AT&T’s DirecTV Now service. This time around, T-Mobile is offering a whole year’s subscription to Hulu absolutely free of charge to former AT&T users who have switched to T-Mobile.
Wait, what? Isn’t DirecTV Now owned by AT&T, not T-Mobile? So what is going on here? Well, John Legere, the ever outspoken chief executive officer of T-Mobile, has said through an official statement that both DirecTV Now and the DirecTV apps stream free on T-Mobile, with Legere further adding that the streaming is done on a network that is more advanced and fast, and one that provides coverage for almost every mobile user based in the United States.
According to Randall Stephenson, the chairman and chief executive officer of AT&T, the initial demand for its newly launched DirecTV Now offering has been dramatic so far (despite a few issues). Stephenson went on to reveal that the second biggest wireless carrier in the United States has already managed to reach its December goal for the number of new subscribers to DirecTV Now, right on the day the service officially went live.
AT&T officially launched its new DirecTV Now service yesterday, debuting a service that brings over a hundred channels for a starting price of $35.

The mobile operator made a wise decision to launch DirecTV Now along with offers of free handsets and a free seven day trial, which resulted to thousands of new sign ups.
AT&T has officially launched its new DirecTV Now service. This latest offering from the second biggest wireless carrier in the United States offers a total of four programming tiers starting at $35 a month which already delivers 60 channels. Apart from setting up a new revenue stream for itself, the mobile operator is clearly looking to further expand its current wireless customer base by bringing them zero rated video content (delivered by way of DirecTV Now) by allowing its subscribers to view videos, shows, and other programs on smartphones, tablets, and other connected devices without ever having to worry about their data allowances getting affected.
AT&T held a high profile event recently in order to formally introduce DirecTV Now, which will be going live on Wednesday November 30th with a price of $35 a month for access to 60 channels.
