SKY Pay TV customers can now access DirecTV Go for free. The IPTV platform has been updated and allows operator users to watch live channels and on-demand content at no additional cost and comes as an alternative to SKY Play.
SKY is apparently seeking to make the tradition of exclusive access, even for a specified period of time, to channels and services without any additions to customers’ subscription fees.
The partnership between SKY and DirecTV Go isn’t a huge surprise: The two companies belong to Vrio, AT&T’s former pay-TV division that recently It was sold to the Argentinian Werthein group.
The IPTV service is one aspect of the group that does not lose its relevance, as the pay-TV sector has lost millions of customers every year. In Brazil, the sector lost more than one million users in just one year.
Anyway, DirecTV Go is now another option for SKY customers to watch TV via broadcast. The operator will continue to maintain the SKY Play application, which also broadcasts paid channels and contains a selection of movies, series and other programs on demand.
Remember to file DirecTV Go has seen a price increase lately. Currently, the service is sold separately for R$69.90 per month or R$699 per year. The plan grants rights to about 70 channels, including Globo, Disney, WarnerMedia, Discovery, Paramount, and others.
