Get Fire TV with 2 Months of DIRECTV NOW

$70.00
-1 Deal Score
2,984 Views
DirecTV Now is now giving away a Fire TV ($69.99 value) with 2-month pre-pay of service (New Customers Only).

Source: https://www.fomopop.com/guides/li...ee-devices

This is not as good as the Apple TV deal, but a much better device than the Free Roku they were giving before.

If you're not a new subscriber, the Fire TV is on sale for $54 on Amazon [amazon.com].

Yea Roku was a better deal...I'd rather not have my device loaded like advertisements like Amazon devices are. And the Roku interface is alot cleaner

so when you prepaid for 2 months that still comes out to 70 dollars for 2 months which is still quiet a bit, since this doesn't come with the BOA deal this is worthless

OP, put $70 in the title. Putting $0.00 makes it sound like 2 months of service is free.

any idea when this expires? I just started a month of Hulu Live, so I'd prefer to wait until 3/1 before starting a new month of TV service with DTV

Lolwut, having owned both I can definitely say that the Roku is a hell of a lot better than the ad laden Fire TV

It has 1 ad on a sidetab that you might never see if you use shortcuts, FireTV has 3 or 4 on the Homepage last time I used it. The Roku AD is also way less intrusive.

frankly I never notice ads on the FTV2 , maybe I'm programmed to ignore it. I notice on the Fire HD10 since it's a lock screen.

I don't get the down votes for this but I'm less impressed with the FTV3. The main thing is DTVN runs fine on my FTV2. True Amazon locks down things but so does Apple. At least Prime members get a cheap pass on movies, shipping and music.

Here is the CC article on this offer. https://www.cordcuttersnews.com/d...-2-months/

DIRECTV NOW you can get a third gen Fire TV.

There are a few rules you need to know. This deal is for new DIRECTV NOW customers only. You also must pre-pay for 2 months of DIRECTV upfront, so no 7-day free trial. You can find this deal by starting the signup process. There you will find an option for a Fire TV if you prepay.

Thanks for the link to all device and trial deals. It's frustrating when you post something very helpful but the majority of those that gather first are illiterate. Your post is good , Thank You OP

I just got the free Roku stick from DTV Now. This is my first Roku in years. It seems like they haven't changed a thing in the OS and the remote is super cheap/flimsy compared to my old Roku 2. I'll probably end up just using the fire TV most of the time.

I was thinking of signing up for this deal, but I think the $10/month offer for 3 months is a better deal.

Right now directv now seems broken for fire tv. Can't go to any channel in the guide. Only browse by pushing left or right. Happening on both my ftvs. Been this way for 2-3 weeks. No help when I called.

Anyone else?
