DirecTV Now raising prices by $10 per month

:reallyangry Well...it sounds like they are digging their own grave if you ask me. It also gets worse
AT&T will also start to sell DIRECTV packages as a streaming-only version. You will now have the option in AT&T stores to get DIRECTV packages as a streaming package, but the pricing will reportedly be the same as the satellite version. AT&T will also stop selling the new Plus and Max packages in AT&T stores. Now if you want to signup for streaming in an AT&T store, you will have to pay the same price as DIRECTV satellite.

According to our sources, AT&T will be selling a 65+ channel streaming version of DIRECTV for $93 a month, an 85+ version of DIRECTV for $110 a month, a 105+ channel version of DIRECTV for $124, and a 125+ channel version of DIRECTV for $135 a month streaming online.
They are now admitting that streaming prices will be the same as satellite prices. :wtf It won't end well...

That's not gonna work in my area. Not enough internet, and when there is, its capped. I use to have their satellite service, and enjoyed it. But I got tired of paying it. They won't even let you buy your receiver out right. You have to keep sighing the contract, which gives them the right to withdraw, for equipment fees if you become default.

Sure is...

Directv Now is giving the boot to discovery, amc and viacom, channels which are included in the basic orby tv package.

That ought to help them stop losing customers to streaming and cord cutting. /snark

They think just like governments do. The only thing governments think of is how to raise taxes and give you less service and both Dave/Charlie do the same thing. People can move from high tax areas to lower ones and people can also tell the pay providers to 'stuff it where the sun doesn't shine'...and they are.

Orby is on to something here. Sell the receiver and dish outright. A decent package at a price point people can afford with half way watchable resolution and no contracts so they can get out of it at any time. And for those of us that already have dishes you risk a hundred bucks on a receiver and after a month or two if you don't like it your not out a fortune or stuck in a contract.
