Sign up for DirecTV Now and you’ll receive a brand new Apple TV 4K to enjoy it on.

Those who prepay for four months of service will receive Apple’s latest set-top box absolutely free. The offer is only available to new subscribers who join before April 30, 2019.

A 32GB Apple TV 4K will cost you $179 at the Apple Store, but every so often, DirecTV gives them away for free. The last time it ran this promotion was last May, so if you missed it then, now is the time to jump on it.

Get a free Apple TV with DirecTV Now

The offer is open to new DirecTV Now subscribers who subscribe to a plan priced at $50 a month or more and prepay for their first four months of service. So, you’re essentially getting $379 worth of value for $200.

With DirecTV Now, you’ll be able to enjoy movies, TV shows, news, sports, and more on your new Apple TV. And if you decide you no longer want the service after four months, you can cancel and keep your new set-top box for good.

Sadly, you won’t be able to enjoy DirecTV Now in 4K, but you will find 4K content on iTunes. It’s also available from other streaming services, including Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. You will also be able to enjoy Apple’s new TV+ streaming service when it launches this fall.

This promotion ends on April 30, 2019, so be sure to take advantage of it before then. DirecTV says you’ll need to wait 1-2 weeks for your Apple TV to arrive when you order online.
