There are two things that I love most about the holiday season: the food and enjoying my favorite holiday movies. The latter, unfortunately, can sometimes be interrupted due to the numerous holiday gatherings that end up stealing away my precious movie watching time–which may or may not make me extremely crabby. Trust me, nobody wants that. Lucky for me, and those around me, I’m a DIRECTV NOW subscriber.

Like many, I plan on traveling a lot to see family and friends this holiday season, so the DIRECTV NOW app will get a lot of use. Just yesterday, I was at the airport waiting to pickup my mom when I found out her flight was delayed by an hour. No worries, I said to myself, as I pulled out my phone and continued streaming the holiday classic featuring a hairy green menace. Needless to say my wait was quite enjoyable. I even got to share the moment with a little boy who couldn’t keep his eyes off my screen. Tis’ the season!

Special DIRECTV NOW Holiday Offers

If you’re ready to dive into the DIRECTV NOW experience yourself, well, it’s a great time to do so. Let’s just say that Christmas has come early. If you’re already a subscriber, I still highly recommend you continue reading on.

DIRECTV NOW is offering some pretty amazing holiday offers for new customers. Take a look:

  • Roku Streaming Stick: Free for new customers who prepay just 1 month of DIRECTV NOW (min. $35/mo).**
  • Birthday credit:In celebration of DIRECTV NOW’s first birthday, new customers can get $25 off their first month of service for any package using the “BDAY2017” promo code. Service auto-renews after 1 month (min. $35/mo.) unless canceled. ***

For those of you who have already joined DIRECTV NOW, I think these offers can still benefit you. They make excellent last minute gift ideas, especially for those on your nice list who have been wanting a Roku Streaming Stick.

I could go on and on about how much I’m loving my annual-contract-free subscription with DIRECTV NOW, but instead I’m going to go watch some holiday movies with my wife. I would love to hear what your all-time favorite holiday movies are, so please leave them in the comments below.
