DirecTV Now Review
The new DirecTV Now is a streaming television service designed to compete with Sling TV and PlayStation Vue. It cost starts at $35 per month for their basic package which includes over 60 channels. However, for a limited time only, because of their launch, they are also offering more than 100-channel packet for the same price until January 9, 2017.
Also, according to Streaming Observer, you will be granted that same rate for as long as you keep the service on your gadget. And while it is slightly more expensive than its streaming counterparts, it is significantly more affordable than the other usual cable subscriptions.
According to Digital Trends, there’s no guarantee how long the reduced rate will stay at $35. Remember that anytime, AT&T reserves the right to change the rate, the number of channels, the specific channels available as well as the services itself. You can expect rates will go up in the future, although you may be able to keep the same rate but access fewer channels, or go down lower than they are offering now.

- Google-cast enabled LeEco TVs
- Vizio SmarrtCast displays
- iOS devices (iPhone/iPad)
- Android devices (phones/tablets)

According to Henry T. Casey, a reliable staff writer from Yahoo News, they were generally disappointed with DirecTV Now in the full review. It is due to the buggy performance, limited platform availability, and inconsistent video quality. "We did praise its wide channel selection, however, and now's the best time to take advantage of that selection for a decent price."
