AT&T’s First TV-Phone Plan after DirecTV Acquisition

AT&T’s First TV-Phone Plan after DirecTV Acquisition

Barely weeks after receiving the FCC’s (Federal Communications Commission) approval of its $48.5 billion acquisition of DirecTV, AT &T has already launched its first plan from the deal – a TV-Phone wireless combo deal that will make your day!

Announcing the new plan, Brad Bentley, chief marketing officer of AT&T Entertainment and Internet Services said, “Today is the first of many planned moves to enable our customers to enjoy a premium entertainment experience almost anywhere. We’re going to deliver more TV and entertainment choices to more screens — when and where our customers want it.”


Under the new deal, AT&T has made it clear that users will be able to access TV from any device be it a TV, a PC, a smartphone or a tablet( with the companion app) as soon as they sign up for the service. The new promo plan costing $200 (for the first year) offers basic TV, both HD and DVR, for four receivers via DirecTV or U-verse and four phone lines with 10GB shared wireless data and unlimited talk time and sms.  The catch is, this plan requires the user to sign a one/two year contract between August 10th and November 14th, 2015. But considering the fact that it will save you a nice chunk of money in the initial one/two years, it is a steal at this price.

AT&T New Plan

For those of you who are not interested in a combo plan, you can opt for AT&T’s new All in One plans that cost between $50 to $125 for TV service via DirecTV or U-verse (your choice); and if you want a separate family phone plan, simple add $160. If you combine the TV and wireless services, you could get a $10 discount. The company is also offering a range of internet services between $30 to $50 per month for the initial year.


AT&T has also started selling DirecTV service in a vast majority of its retail stores alongside its U-Verse TV service. Additionally an AT&T smartphone could get you a $300 bill credit!
