AT&T has just recently dropped Live TV as an added feature with all of its top tie-in bundles. Starting this week, AT&T is replacing its current two-tier plans with a new trio of plans, all of which include a live TV in addition to their bundled services. AT&T is also launching a new DirecTV deal that’s good for the entire family.
The first plan is AT&T DirecTV HD and it includes the popular High Definition programming. The second plan, the AT&T U-verse bundle, includes features like broadband internet access with faster upload speeds for video downloads, unlimited HD DVR, access to hundreds of pay channels including sports channels and HBO Go and a digital DVR recording device. The third plan, AT&T U-verse Plus, provides users with access to over 70 channels and free upgrades to High Definition programming on their HDTV’s, as well as pay-per-view movie rentals, and a HD DVR recorder. It is an excellent choice for both sports fans and people who have yet to upgrade from their regular satellite provider.
The new DirecTV deal from AT&T works out to a cost savings of between $50 and $60 per month. This includes the installation of the dish on the roof, which can take a few days or even a few weeks. You also need to remember that your bill must cover the cost of the dishes and installation. But this initial outlay is certainly worth it. It means that if you live in an area where AT&T has been building new homes and you don’t already have a High Definition system, you can get an HDTV and pay less than you would for a regular home system.
If you currently have a High Definition receiver, you are already paying more than you would if you were to upgrade to AT&T’s latest plan, but you might be interested in buying additional equipment. If you do so, you won’t have to purchase any extra equipment or add on the High Definition package if you are a customer with an existing contract. You can get the HDTV, a receiver and a DVR kit separately. for under the new DirecTV deal.
For those who are on a tighter budget, AT&T has two other plans that still allow you to watch TV. First, there’s the AT&T U-verse Extreme bundle that includes no HDTV but still includes the High Definition programming. and a DVR recorder and unlimited broadband internet access for a one-time charge. Second, there’s the AT&T U-Verse bundle that includes the HDTV and other special features, but no DVR recorder and no unlimited internet access.
If you’ve been tempted by the deals that the other two plans have to offer but can’t afford them at this time, you should consider the packages. That way, you’re getting the best value, without having to go overboard, and paying more than you want to spend.
If you’re already a U-Verse customer and you’re ready for a bigger bang for your buck, consider the new AT&T U-Verse bundles. You’ll get two hundred extra channels for the price of just one hundred and fifty, with more than twice as much high definition programming.
Don’t make the mistake of assuming that if you only want one or two programs to watch at a time that you need to cancel your service. Most people find that they have so much to watch that they’re able to fit a lot of shows and movies into their schedules and that the extra channels are well worth the extra expense. Even if you only watch one or two of the channels that you can afford, this package is well worth the price. So if you’re tired of missing your favorite shows and are tired of paying outrageous rates, then get yourself one of AT&T’s new packages and watch your favorite television shows and movies whenever you want.
