    Hang on, is DirecTV now something other than a satellite TV provider?  I've pretty much ignored every story and mailer about DirecTV because I'm not interested in dropping FiOS.  Is it now a way to get TV programming over the internet even if you have some other ISP?

    Well, yeah. If you live in southern California or somewhere else locked in a bubble with actually fast Internet, you can get either Dish or DirecTV in an over-the-internet format now. I don’t think it’s the whole package they offer otherwise, but it’s something.

    Yep, DirecTV Now is their streaming service, so you don't need a satellite dish. The content can be streamed using the free Apple TV 4K included in this promo or even through a browser. There are four packages to choose from depending on the number of channels you'd like. I use it regularly and plan to cancel my regular TV service once DVR functionality is deployed, most likely later this year.

    I got the original Apple TV with the 3 months of service.  I still have the $35 per month Go Big account.  I just did a 2nd account to get the Apple 4K TV and it arrived to me in 4 days.  I was shocked because the original was like 3 weeks.  I already cancelled the account with the 4K TV.  I let my so use it for the 3 months so he can see how well it works and then he can decide rather he wants the service or not.  I got my 4K apple TV :)

    I was thinking the same thing. It must be a paid ad that's not labeled as one...

    WHY DOES THIS STORY KEEP GETTING BUMPED?

    AI, can you clarify if this is paid content? Doesn’t seem typical for promos.
