Plus you can still get a 4K Apple TV or Amazon Fire Stick.
Heads up: If you’ve been considering cutting your cable subscription and replacing it with a live TV streaming alternative, there are crazy good DirecTV Now promos going on now. The short version? You can get a $180 Apple TV 4K for just $105, and that price includes three months of DirecTV Now. If you don’t need a streaming box, you can also get the service for $10/month for the first three months, saving you $75. Finally, if you’re an Amazon household, there’s a good Amazon Fire TV promo going on now too.
For those not caught up, it’s been pretty painless to drop cable for some time now, replacing it with Netflix, Hulu, and so-on. But the one thing missing was watching TV live as it aired, which mattered for big sporting events and other key TV events. Services like DirecTV Now, Sling, and PlayStation Vue filled that gap by offering live TV streaming over the internet. The cost for one of these services + standalone services like Netflix + internet isn’t cheap, but it’s usually still considerably cheaper than a cable package, and has the added advantage of letting you watch on loads of devices, not just on a TV.
