DirecTV Now will raise prices and bundle in HBO starting next month
DirecTV Now is gearing up for a price hike that will see customers pay an additional $10 per month, but receive an HBO subscription in return.
AT&T is restructuring the current packages that DirecTV Now subscribers have access to, and replacing them with two new options, according to Cord Cutter News. The first package, DirecTV Now Plus, will offer more than 40 channels, including HBO, for $50 per month. The second package, DirecTV Now Max, boasts more than 50 channels (also including HBO) for $70 per month. Both price tiers are $10 more per month than what current DirecTV Now subscribers pay. DirecTV Now subscribers will be alerted to the price hike on March 12th, and the change will take effect on April 12th.
