Bundling services together can save you money, but if you don't want a landline phone, you're just paying extra for something you don't use. What if you could bundle your wireless data service together with satellite TV?
We told you about the acquisition of DirecTV by AT&T just last week, and the massive telecommunications department is already rolling out the details about its proposed phone and Internet plans.
There are actually a few plans for you, depending on what you'd like to spend and what you need to have. With the first plan, you get basic TV service on up to four receivers and up to four phone lines with 10 gigabytes of shared data for $200 a month.
This promotional pricing for this plan only lasts for a year and is likely to change after AT&T gets settled into a groove with the acquisition.
The second plan is called the All in One, and there are several different pricing options to fit your needs. The prices range from $50 to $125 for a TV contract and an additional $160 if you want to add on a cellular service plan.
"We’re going to deliver more TV and entertainment choices to more screens – when and where our customers want it. And we’ll offer incredible value with more flexibility and convenience through our integrated packages that deliver a great experience," Brad Bentley, executive vice president and chief marketing officer of AT&T Entertainment and Internet Services, said in a press release about the integrated plans.
Even though these plans could save you up to $600 over the course of a year, the costs are likely to increase after. But who knows? It may be smooth sailing from here on out with AT&T and DirecTV.
We'll keep you up to date with any more information about this merger as it comes out, so stay tuned to what's Happening Now.
