Default get a load of this!

CABLE

OK, so my buddy at work told me about DIRECTV NOW, not more than 2 weeks after my boss told me he switched from optimum to directv and he hated it! but, he has satellite and what he hates is how he loses tv during storms.
OK, what is DIRECTV NOW, it is all the bells and whistles of directv but streaming. Everything. Live tv, etc.
So, I cancelled my cable triple play ($191 a month) and subscribed to 200 mbps internet ($64 a month)
And I got the directv plus which is $50 a month for 80 channels including all live TV stuff.
Plus, because I paid 2 months in advance ($100) they sent me a free Fire TV.

If I understood any of that I'd think it sounds pretty good. Still doing the old style tv and just regular old cable. No netflix or none of that stuff.

I still have cable. When we moved last year we were going to get DirecTV, but when the installer came out he said our neighbors trees blocked the satellite. So, I had to stay with cable.

now you can get all the bells and whistles of directv without the satellite. Just keep your cable as an ISP (internet only) and all your TV on the directv app (smart tv or firestick)

and no more cable box! On as many TVs as you want... each additional tv cost you..... NOTHING!
