AT&T today announced that it's reactivated a deal offering new DirecTV Now subscribers a 32GB fourth-generation Apple TV at no cost with the purchase of a 3-month prepaid DirecTV Now subscription.

A DirecTV NOW subscription starts at $35 per month for the most basic package, so subscribers will need to pay $105 up front to get the deal. AT&T offered a similar deal back when the service first launched, but the original promotion ended months ago.

To get the Apple TV at no cost, new subscribers will need to sign up for DirecTV now at an AT&T Retail or Authorized Retail Store, or through an AT&T Call Center. The deal is not available online.

While pricing for DirecTV Now starts at $35 for 60 channels, AT&T's other pricing plans include $50 per month for 80+ channels, $60 per month for 100+ channels, and $70 per month for 120+ channels. HBO and Cinemax are also available for an additional $5 each per month.

AT&T says the Apple TV deal will be available while supplies last.

And if AT&T is giving them away, they are getting them at a discount, so new hardware is coming soon.

What was their reason last time?

I'm not denying they are going to be releasing a new one but I just think this logic is flawed.

Just to chime in on my experience with DTV NOW, it sucks. The web app, Apple TV app, it all sucks. Constant freezing and bitrate drops. On-demand is non-existent and unplayable for the most part. iPhone app is somewhat bearable.

Why are people leaving Vue?
This is absolutely ridiculous and incorrect . I've had DTVN since the beginning with Apple TV -- I have my Apple TV wired with an Ethernet cable and I never have issues, and is the only steaming service that streams buttery smooth.

Maybe it's your internet that sucks .

I keep looking at direct tv now but these stories are scary
Trust me from someone who's had the service since the beginning. It def is better on a Apple TV rather than a "stick" , it's quicker and more responsive on a powerful streaming device. DTVN streams the smoothest and has the best value. I've tried them all.

Are there anybody that has DirecTV and does like it?
I love DTVN. 35 bucks a month for the go big package. Free Apple TV, free HBO and CBS coming soon. Beats $135 for cable.

With vudu coming next week and Amazon in a few months, have to say Apple TV is finally the de facto steaming box
