If you previously signed up for DirecTV Now, there are some big changes you should be aware of. The service has transformed into AT&T TV NOW and, for bargain hunters, it isn’t necessarily good news.
Taking a brief look back at the history of the two companies, the satellite entertainment provider was acquired by AT&T in 2016 in an effort to diversify. Shortly after the acquisition, DirecTV Now entered the market and gained some traction thanks to a number of discounts and promotions. Unfortunately, the streaming service could not keep up with the likes of Netflix over the years, especially in terms of price.
With the change to AT&T TV NOW, you may be subject to future price increases, if the history of the phone service giant is any indication. And at $50 a month for the basic package and $70 for the premium one, other streaming services can look much more enticing. So if you want to get out before then, this is how to cancel your DirecTV Now subscription.

Affordable Alternatives for Streaming Live TV

So you’re a “cord-cutter 2.0” now, but what if you still have the itch to watch live TV? Well, two solid options are Sling TV and Hulu+Live TV.
Sling TV offers more channels than AT&T TV NOW and a lower cost for extra channels, which start at $3 per add-on. New subscribers can get 40% off the first month of service which brings it to a nice clean $15 (Reg. $25) for the basic Sling Orange or Blue options. Looking for even more? You can also get the Orange & Blue combo for $25 (Reg. $40) for the first month.
If you enjoy your local channels, you can also watch them at no cost with this current deal. For a limited time, Sling TV is offering a free AIRTV+RCA HDTV Indoor Antenna (Reg. $109.99) when you subscribe and pre-pay for three months of service.

For those looking to binge-watch shows and movies as well as live television, Hulu+Live TV provides the best of both worlds at a slightly cheaper rate than AT&T TV NOW. The service comes with more than 60 channels and grants full access to Hulu’s streaming library for $44.99 a month.
However, new and eligible subscribers can start a week-long trial free of charge. Unlike other services, getting started with Hulu+Live TV is extremely easy as it doesn’t require any equipment rentals or installation. Just sign up and you’re good to go.
