If you still have cable or are still watching Netflix by hooking your laptop up to your TV, WYD?
Yes, we get it — the world of cord cutting can be overwhelming. There are so many plans and channel options, wonky Wi-Fi connections, and weird people coming into your house to install the dish. With all of that, it might seem easier to just…not.
We’re just gonna leave this here: DirecTV NOW is only $35/month, and when you prepay for the first month, they’ll throw in a free Roku Streaming Stick. Problem solved.
DirecTV is the single most popular satellite TV provider, and DirectTV NOW is their no-dish-needed streaming service — and seriously, what sounds better than getting most everything DirecTV offers without the annoying satellite setup?
By combining the watch options of DirecTV and the Roku stick, your viewing possibilities are quite literally endless. Just stick the little chip in your TV and bam: Stream over 60 live channels with live sports, news, and TV shows right when they’re on — so you’ll never have to worry about spoilers again. You can also stream more than 25,000 on-demand shows and movies, and get access to all of your favorite apps including Netflix, Amazon Video, Hulu, and HBO. (Cough new season of Westworld cough.)
Roku also offers a smartphone app that basically turns your phone into a remote.
For an extra $5 each month, you can add HBO and Cinemax, and for an extra $8 each month, you can add STARZ and SHOWTIME. (And if you want even more live channels, like 100 more, you can always upgrade your plan.) Basically, there’s gonna be nothing you can’t watch.
