AT&T TV is sold like traditional cable/satellite TV, with contracts, too many plans, high prices, second-year price hikes, and other things that live TV streaming services aren’t supposed to have.
To be fair, you can get a no-contract plan with AT&T TV, but it’ll cost an additional $10.00–$20.00 per month. It promises “no big price jump at month 13.” But it’s worth mentioning that this doesn’t say that your payment will never increase—just that it won’t happen at month 13.
AT&T TV does have some good introductory promotions, though: a free year of HBO Max, a free season of NBA League Pass, and three free months of CINEMAX®, SHOWTIME®, STARZ®, and EPIX®. These promos are, in fact, stackable—but they all require choosing AT&T TV’s CHOICETM plan ($84.99 a month for the no-contract version, 90+ channels) or higher.
So, if you’re okay signing up for AT&T TV just to ditch it after four months when your promos expire, do it—but remember to choose a no-contract plan. But we’d suggest trying DIRECTV’s satellite TV service, or a different streamer, to save yourself the hassle.
