AT&T includes free HBO for some wireless customers

“Our customers want wireless entertainment on their terms, and we’re going to deliver,” said David Christopher, chief marketing officer, AT&T Entertainment Group. “We are now including HBO when a customer has AT&T Unlimited Plus ‘ giving you unlimited access to Game of Thrones, Silicon Valley, VEEP and more.”

Here’s how it works:

  • If you currently subscribe to HBO through an AT&T video service, 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 have an AT&T video service, you can access HBO through the DIRECTV Now and HBO Go apps.

In addition to free HBO, Unlimited Plus customers receive a $25 monthly credit if they have DIRECTV, DIRECTV Now or U-Verse TV service.

The wireless plan offers unlimited data, talk and text, plus 10 GB of Wi-Fi tethering per line.

Starting at $90 a month for a single line and $145 a month for two lines, AT&T’s Unlimited Plus plan is the most expensive of the big four wireless providers.

The company offers a $60 a month unlimited option, but speeds are limited to 3Mbps (which allows you to browse the internet, send emails and watch some video).

The addition of free HBO marks the second time that AT&T has tweaked its unlimited plan to better compete with Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint.
