You’ve probably heard people talking about DirecTV Now, the new Internet streaming service that costs way less than a traditional cable or satellite package.

For a limited time, you can get about 100 channels for $35 a month.

Using your Internet connection, you can stream content using your smartphone, tablet or computer. There are also several ways to project DirecTV Now onto your TV.

‘DirecTV Now is the closest we’ve ever had to a replacement for traditional pay TV, but at a much lower price,’ Clark said.

As part of an introductory offer, DirecTV Now will send you a free 4th generation Apple TV if you prepay for three months. That’s a $149 value!

After paying $105 for three months of service, my Apple TV arrived in the mail a few days later.

I’m using a Google Chromecast device to stream DirecTV Now from my phone to my TV, so I decided to sell my free Apple TV for a quick profit.

There are many listings on Craigslist for up to $120, but I didn’t want to go that route.

Instead, I went to, a website that I’ve used in the past, and got an immediate $75 offer for the Apple TV. Just like that, I recouped all but $30 of what I paid to try out the service.


Like Clark has mentioned, DirecTV can be a little choppy. But there is a 7-day free trial. So you can always cancel the service if you don’t like it.
