It’s the holiday season, and T-Mobile is ready to give gifts.
On Thursday, the Un-carrier announced a new way to spread some holiday cheer for those looking to switch allegiances in the new year. So if you’re an AT&T Wireless customer who thinks you might be happier elsewhere, T-Mobile has a gift for you — it comes in the form of a free year of DirecTV Now, all for switching to T-Mobile One. It’s a giveaway valued at $420, and it kicks off on Friday.
“AT&T wants you to think DirecTV is theirs exclusively, but that’s a load of crap. Both DirecTV Now and the DirecTV apps stream free on T-Mobile with a faster, more advanced network that covers nearly every American,” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. “AT&T is so distracted by their new businesses and DirecTV that they continue to ignore their 110 million wireless customers. Luckily, the Un-carrier’s here to show them how to actually take care of customers!”
To take advantage of T-Mobile’s offer, AT&T customers will need to activate two lines and bring their related phone number to T-Mobile One. From there, you’ll receive a $35 monthly bill credit (which is equal to the monthly cost of DirecTV Now) every month for a year, as long as your lines remain active.
Moreover, if you’re a Simple Choice customer, DirecTV Now has been added to T-Mobile’s Binge On video streaming feature, which means you can stream programs from DirecTV in addition to the other video apps included, like Netflix, Hulu, and HBO Now.
