Consumers benefitting from increased competition between streaming services
One of the major benefits of the battle between streaming companies to win customers in the United States is that the consumers are the ones that are being offered special deals to entice them to sign up.
As of press time, here are the latest deals to encourage you to sign up:
• Sling TV: Get a free Roku Streaming Stick when you prepay for 1 month. Or get an Apple TV for $89 or 50% off a Roku Premiere+ when you prepay 3 months of Sling TV. First, get the 7-day free trial to Sling Orange/Blue to get started.
• Sling World Sports: Sign up for one-year of Sling World Sports for $80 instead of $120 per year. That brings the monthly cost to just $6.66 per month. Plus you get beIN SPORTS, beIN SPORTS en Español, Willow TV (for cricket) and other sports networks. To find it, click on the Sling World Sports link and then click on the ‘World Sports Annual’ tab. You’ll then see a blue ‘Sign up now’ button on the right.
• DIRECTV NOW: Prepay for 3 months of DIRECTV NOW and get an Apple TV for free. Or pay for 1 month and get an Amazon Fire TV Stick free. Sign up for the 7-day free trial first and then, if you like what you see, you can prepay to get either offer.
If you haven’t cut the cord yet, now’s the time to consider signing up for one of the streaming services listed above and then cancel your satellite or TV subscription.
