Over the weekend DIRECTV NOW sent out emails to some subscribers about a November price hike. We quickly started to receive emails from readers letting us know of a second $5 price hike. The truth is though there is no second $5 price hike.
From looking at the emails what it looks like DIRECTV NOW subscribers who took the Apple TV deal are seeing, is that deal come to an end and they are now seeing their price go up. At the time of the DIRECTV NOW price hike in July, you could pre-pay for 4 months of DIRECTV NOW to get an Apple TV 4K. So if you prepaid for DIRECTV NOW to get that deal in July that deal is coming to an end in November.
Now there is truth to the idea that DIRECTV NOW may raise the price again. Recently AT&T’s Chief Executive Randall Stephenson said they are considering a second price hike but did not give a set date for when that might happen. For now though, there is no new DIRECTV NOW price hike. If that changes we will make sure to post about it.
Now it is important to note that most of the DIRECTV NOW deals have ended or are ending. If you see a deal on the market right now for DIRECTV NOW I wouldn’t wait because it could end at any time.
