AT&T continues to court its DirecTV customers with wireless offers.
The carrier this week announced an update to its DirecTV App that will allows customers to watch live TV on their mobile phones. The new app also allows users to watch content stored on their DVR.
The service works over a Wi-Fi or a cellular connection, and AT&T says content viewed through the app won’t count against the customer’s data cap if they’re an AT&T wireless customer.
The news follows on another promotion that offers new and existing DirecTV and Uverse customers a free smartphone, or $695 in monthly bill credits when they trade in their old device and activate the new phone with eligible service. .
An AT&T spokesman said the offer applies to the new Apple iPhone 7, and Samsung S7 and is limited to one free phone per account.
The free phone offer begins tomorrow, September 9.
