YMMV : DIRECTV NOW possible $25 credit for 3 months for 1st Gen Amazon Fire TV Users

Just got an email from DirecTV that the new app for DIRECTV NOW will soon being available for Amazon devices and, unfortunately, it is not compatible with the 1st Generation Amazon Fire TV device. I'm using the 1st gen Fire Stick; they're offering $25 credit for the next 3 months so I can use that money towards a new Amazon Fire TV. I tried applying the unique promo code on my account but got the following error:

Quote :
34814 : You must already have this premium channel in your account to redeem the promotion. Once added, you will be charged a prorated amount covering the remainder of your bill cycle, with the discount starting on your next bill date
If anyone figures this out, please share. This is a YMMV (check your email). FYI, I have the original Go Big plan ($35/mo intro offer).


UPDATE: a few of the people in here got the promo code to apply without issues (maybe they fixed their system to accept it now) while a few have had DirecTv CSRs apply it for them. The only concern is whether AT&T may be shady and force us early $35/month Go Big plan adopters to the current $60/mo plan after the 3-month credit is up. PROCEED WITH CAUTION.

UPDATE 2: I just did a chat (https://www.att.com/contactus/ind...html?tab=3) and was able to get $75 credit directly without having them apply the code manually or do anything to my account that could risk kicking me off the grandfathered $35 Go Big plan. A few others have done this also, just do a chat. So if you're worried that applying the promo code kicks you off the grandfathered plan, do a chat and ask for $75 direct credit



Attached is a snapshot of the beginning of the email.

I got this as well and the same error.

I am going to chat with them tomorrow.

Awesome, please share your experience; I already got a new 4K Amazon TV for free for signing up for one $35 month service (the deal a month or so ago). $75 credit will come in handy Smilie

I just chatted. The rep said that because I pay $35/month for Go Big plan (since I am an early adopter) I cannot get this discount. BS

Darn that sucks. I'm in the same boat, that sucks. I'll post my promo code soon if this is the final answer so someone else can hopefully use it if they're paying the regular monthly price

Edit: I wonder if add a few premium channels (HBO, Showtime, etc) and apply the code it will work

DTVNow never worked with the first gen stick - it wouldn't even let me load the app.
Mine worked but it was very slow and would close by itself. Works great on Fire TV Stick 4k and Roku Stick.

Received the email overnight as well. Will use it towards the end of current 3 months for $10 a month offer. That way I can roll into almost a half yea of it for $10 a month. The email though specifically states 1st Generation Amazon Fire TV device.

I chatted with CS last night and was told the same thing that you can not have two promos since I get the $35 go big plan. I then copied the email into my chat and the woman said she would apply the discount. So she gave me the $25 off for the next three months.

I have seen the 3 months for $10 a month deal all over the place.. I had the free month with the $35 pendant offer that ended a month ago and just got the $32 CB incedently.. Today I got this email offer, I did have a first gen stick I used on the account, and I would guess they see that..

I had a lot of buffering issues with the pendant. I even paid $15 for the amazon ethernet adapter, with little if any improvement. I see that the IOS tv app now has DVR. Has there been any improvent over the last month I have been gone?

Does the offer expire if I go with the $10/month for 3 month offer if I reactivate the account?

Hmm. I'm running it on a 1st gen firestick at regular price and didn't get one. If anyone has a code they can't use I'd appreciate it
