DirecTV and AT&T are sitting in that proverbial tree, but that isn't going to stop any telecom competitors from throwing rocks their way. Case in point: Sprint is running a promo that gives DirecTV customers a year of free cell service by switching to the Now Network. Of course you need to either be a new customer or adding an additional line of service through the telco, and even then it has to be either a Sprint Lease, iPhone Forever, Easy Pay or you have to cough up full retail price for a phone to take advantage of this. If you qualify for this sweet action you'll need to upload your recent satellite bill to the carrier's website. A $36 activation fee applies as do taxes and service charges that accrue on a monthly basis. Should you want in on this deal it'd be wise to hurry as it ends September 30th.
The barbs don't stop with the deal itself, as even the PR quote's tossing a few at AT&T and DirecTV's way:
"DIRECTV customers love their TV service – but they shouldn't have to settle for AT&T wireless," said Kevin Crull, chief marketing officer, Sprint. "Why not build the perfect bundle by combining with Sprint wireless? We're winning awards across the country because our network has never been stronger, faster or more reliable, and our customers have never been more satisfied."
