The basic DirecTV Now package costs $35 per month, which means if you stop your DirecTV Now subscription after one month, you’re essentially getting the Fire TV Stick for $5 off. DirecTV Now offered a similar deal when it first launched in late 2016.
Five dollars off isn’t much of a deal by itself, but don’t forget you also get the DirecTV Now service for a month. The basic “Live a Little” package features channels such as AMC, Cartoon Network, Comedy Central, CNN, Disney, ESPN, FS1 and FX. There are three other higher-priced packages available too, as well as add-ons for additional costs such as Cinemax, HBO, and Starz.
As for the Fire TV Stick with the Alexa remote, it’s a nice little streaming device. It’s not quite as handy as Chromecast, which lets you send content from your phone to your TV, but as a cheap way to access streaming services in your living room, it’s a fine choice.
