DirecTV has extended its popular free Apple TV 4K promotion with three months of prepaid DirecTV Now service. Plans start at $35 per month, making the 32GB Apple TV 4K with service as low as $105.

Proving to be a popular deal, DirecTV has extended the promotion, which offers new users a free Apple TV 4K with three months of prepaid DirecTV Now service. Plan start at $35 per month, making the total out of pocket cost as low as $105 plus tax for both the Apple TV 4K and three months of programming.

Considering the 32 gigabyte Apple TV 4K retails for $179 alone, this deal is $75 cheaper than paying retail, without even factoring in the included programming. Back in November, DirecTV required four months of service to secure the free Apple TV 4K, making this offer $35 cheaper than the previous holiday deal.

The streaming platform provides users with a variety of popular cable channels, including properties owned by AMC, Discovery, Disney, NBCUniversal and Viacom, among others. In November 2017, AT&T struck a deal with CBS to carry streaming and on-demand content from CBS News, CBS Sports Network, The CW, Pop and Showtime.

Along with Apple TV, DirecTV Now supports a wide variety of internet-connected devices including Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick, iPhone, iPad, Android hardware, Chromecast, and Google Cast-enabled LeEco ecotvs and VIZIO SmartCast Displays. Subscribers can also access programming through web browsers.

AT&T's offer is available throughout April (while supplies last), and devices ship out within two to three weeks of placing an order.
