DirecTV Stream price drop: Cost of streaming service cheaper for limited time



DirecTV Stream is the latest major player to enter the live TV streaming service game.

And, no, you do not need a satellite on your roof for the service.

With an unrivaled level of access to every major channel on TV, they’re sending a message to consumers: if you’re looking for one of the best deals in the business, you’ve come to the right place.

Even better, DirecTV Stream is offering a $15 discount on the first two months for a limited time. The base package, which normally costs $69.99, has been slashed to $54.99.

DirecTV Stream also provides hundreds of on-demand titles, the ability to stream through three devices at once and unlimited Cloud DVR storage.

Here is everything you need to know about DirecTV Stream:

How much does DirecTV Stream cost?

DirecTV Stream normally costs $69.99 per month, with a range of add-on options. A subscription can be canceled at any time.

With the current discount, all packages have had their prices slashed by $15. This ranges from the base Entertainment Package, which has been discounted from $69.99 to $54.99, to the Premier Package, which has fallen from $149.99 to $134.99.

While DirecTV Stream doesn’t offer the same low prices as Philo or Sling, it offers far more content than virtually any of its competitors. The service is closer in price to Fubo TV, though it doesn’t feature quite as many overall channels in the base package.

It does, however, rival Fubo’s sports content unlike any other contender in the streaming game.

What channels are on DirecTV Stream? What are the different packages?

First, the big one: Like Fubo, a subscription to DirecTV Stream gives you full access to ABC, making it one of the few places to watch a live stream of the massive network.

In addition, DirecTV Stream’s offerings include CBS, FOX, NBC, ESPN, ESPN2, AMC, BET, OWN, MTV, VH1, SHOWTIME, HGTV, MSNBC, FX, USA, Comedy Central, A&E, Food Network, E!, Hallmark, Discovery Channel, WE tv, Lifetime, and Disney Channel.

The list of all packages and 140+ total channels can be found here.

Does DirecTV Stream offer a free trial?

DirecTV Stream offers a free trial that doesn’t require much effort.

To sign up, enter a phone number, email address and credit card, and you’ll receive five days of the service without charge.

What shows can I watch on DirecTV Stream?

In addition to live TV, DirecTV Stream has a significant library of on-demand content. The selection and the length of availability varies widely, though.

The primary focus of the on-demand feature is for programming that has recently aired on the available channels.
