Price drop on DirecTV Stream: The cost of streaming service cheaper for a limited time
DirecTV Stream is the latest major player to enter the live TV streaming service game.
And no, you do not need a satellite on the roof for the service.
With an unmatched level of access to all major TV channels, they are sending a message to consumers: If you are looking for one of the best deals in the industry, you have come to the right place.
Even better, DirecTV Stream is offering a $ 15 discount for the first two months for a limited time. The basic package, which normally costs $ 69.99, has been cut to $ 54.99.
DirecTV Stream also offers hundreds of on-demand titles, the ability to stream through three devices simultaneously and unlimited Cloud DVR storage.
Here’s everything you need to know about DirecTV Stream:
How much does DirecTV Stream cost?
DirecTV Stream typically costs $ 69.99 per month, with a number of additional options. A subscription can be canceled at any time.
With the current discount, all packages have had their prices cut by $ 15. This ranges from the basic entertainment package, which has been discounted from $ 69.99 to $ 54.99, to the Premier package, which has dropped from $ 149.99 to $ 134.99.
While DirecTV Stream does not offer the same low prices as Philo or Sling, it does offer far more content than virtually any of its competitors. The service is closer to Fubo TV in price, although it does not have quite as many general channels in the basic package.
However, it competes with Fubo’s sports content unlike any other competitor in the streaming game.
