FREE HBO now comes with Unlimited Plus + Choice!

While AT&T only charges $5 for HBO with DirecTV Now, I think it's $15 pretty much anywhere else. But it looks as if you don't even need to have a regular DirecTV subscription to get this.

 

It seems pretty simple:

 

"AT&T Unlimited Plus customers will benefit from HBO included in their wireless plan as follows:

  • If you currently subscribe to HBO through an AT&T video service – DIRECTV, DIRECTV NOW or U-verse TV – HBO will now be included for no additional charge.
  • If you subscribe to an AT&T video service but not HBO, you’ll automatically receive access to the premium HBO channels as part of your wireless plan.
  • If you don’t subscribe to an AT&T video service, you can access your HBO content through the DIRECTV NOW and HBO Go apps"

See here for more details.

 

The biggest issue with this is you can probably have 10 people on your unlimited plan, but only 2 people can stream DirecTV Now, but the HBO Go app is probably a little more lenient on that (but it's not data free*).

 

And don't they look happy with free HBO?!?Screen Shot 2017-04-05 at 8.50.43 AM.png

 

 * = While all data is free on Unlimited, non-DirecTV Now data (such as HBO Go) does count towards your 22GB deprioritization limit.

After 4 hours of dealing with this issue on the phone with ATT, I have decided to cancel and move to T-Mobile with free Netflix ... ATT doesn't deserve my $400/month.


What issue? You haven't posted a problem.

The issue in the subject line.  Literally 4 hours without anyone able to help, at any level, with one agent dropping me to another agent without explanation, etc etc.  It even took 2 of those hours for them to determine that this rate plan/hBO offer is a real plan.  Crazy.

The subject line is "Re: FREE HBO now comes with Unlimited Plus + Choice!"

 

That's not a problem it's a statement. If you're like to be vague that's okay, but we don't know what your issue is.

 

 It even took 2 of those hours for them to determine that this rate plan/hBO offer is a real plan.  Crazy.

You've posted twice and haven't even told us what plan you are on. Crazy!

 

I'm guessing you had problems adding HBO? What did you try?

The promo is HBO® is now included for AT&T UNLIMITED CHOICE AND PLUS CUSTOMERS.  I have Unlimited Choice and I'm unable to sign up.  Every time I go through the prompt to text 2885 with a word, it sends me a message "Oh no! It looks like that mobile number isn’t eligible for our limited time offers. (Error code: 44703)" Any idea why?  Or is this strictly for PLUS customers?

are you going through DirecTV NOW ?  You have access to HBO GO sign up through the streaming service.  You do not have to sign up for Direct TV NOW

Does each line on the unlimited plus plan get 22GB of data before de-prioritization?

Forgot to ask this before but is the 10GB hotspot data in addition to the 22GB or is it part of the 22GB?

 

Thx.
