Last Call: Deal for 3 Months of DirecTV Now and Apple TV 4K at No Cost Expires Today

by

As we've followed DirecTV Now's ongoing offer to get an Apple TV 4K at no extra cost when paying for three months of the live streaming TV service for $105, it's been somewhat unclear how long the deal would last. According to our affiliate, today's the last day to take advantage of the deal, as the three-month offer will expire later tonight.

Note: MacRumors is an affiliate partner with DirecTV Now. When you click a link and make a purchase, we may receive a small payment, which helps us keep the site running.

Afterward, the deal will return back to prepaying for four months of DirecTV Now at $140 to get the Apple TV 4K at no cost, which will last only for a few days through Tuesday, June 12. After that date, the offer -- which kicked off seven months ago in November 2017 -- appears to be ending for good.

The deal continues to provide the best savings for a 32GB Apple TV 4K online (regularly $179), so if you haven't used it yet -- or if you want another Apple TV 4K in your house -- check out the steps on how to redeem it below:

  • Visit DirecTVNow.com's landing page for the deal
  • Click "Redeem & Stream"
  • Select the "Live a Little" package to get the Apple TV at the lowest possible price
  • Choose if you want to add another stream and premium channels, or click "Skip for now"
  • Click "Add to plan" under the Apple TV 4K box in the Special offer section
  • Click "Continue" and go through the account creation and checkout processes

Although some users keep their DirecTV Now subscription after the three month period ends, many also choose to cancel the service before they're charged again. Even if you cancel, the Apple TV 4K will be yours to keep once you go through with the sale. DirecTV Now promotes the offer as one for new subscribers only, but existing subscribers can claim it by using an alternative email address from their original account, or by setting up an iCloud email alias.

Update: It appears AT&T is letting the three-month prepayment deal run just a bit longer than originally planned, so make sure to grab it before it's gone.

I'd rather just pay for the Apple TV. I can't see myself ever paying for the ability to watch live tv again. Way too many commercials.

You would rather pay $180 instead of $105?

Don’t do it. I have this service and the experience has been horrible. Especially the chat only customer service. The agents are nice, but don’t know how to resolve issues. Plus, the app drops connection very often. Not worth it.

Don’t do what? Is a $75 discount on an Apple TV. Nothing requires you to ever install the app or actually watch anything on the service.

It's basically like paying to watch commercials. And to keep profits up and compensate for cord cutters, networks have been cramming in even more commercials and cutting more off the shows .

Nah, dawg. I'm good. Go sell crazy someplace else.

I'd pay $500 if it meant no commercials. They could offer me cable TV for free and I'd turn it down .

...Just don’t use the service and keep the Apple TV.

Exactly. Cable and satellite companies have been bleeding tv subscribers. Yet, their profits remain the same. It's simple math.
I'm tryin' to keep my profits up! I couldn't care less about theirs.

This makes little sense at all. Especially if you're trying to keep your profits up. You're right, the math is simple which is why it so odd that you're getting it wrong. Get a ATV for $105 and cancel the sub. Buy an ATV outright. There's no math, simple or otherwise, where choosing the latter "keeps your profits up".

It's the same with gravage. You both seem to be willing to cut off your nose to spite your face. I don't think he got the reference though.

how does this work for 105? you pay 105, get tv, then unsubscribe after 3months?

Yep, pretty much. You can even unsubscribe immediately after the order is confirmed, although I usually tell people to wait until the ATV is in just as a confirmation thing.
