AT&T isn't waiting long to take advantage of its DirecTV acquisition. The telecom giant is introducing its first plans that incorporate the satellite TV provider, including a promo plan that could save you money if you need to get both cellphone and TV service at the same time. The offering gives you basic TV service for four receivers (through either DirecTV or U-verse) and four phone lines with 10GB of shared data for $200 per month over the first year. You'll need to agree to a 1- or 2-year TV contract and sign up between August 10th and November 14th, but you could save up to $600 in those initial 12 months -- no small amount, even though the rate is likely to change in the long run.

If you're not taking advantage of that specific promo, you'll still have some options that include DirecTV. AT&T's new All in One plans range between $50 to $125 for TV alone, and again let you pick whether you're on DirecTV or U-verse. If you need phone service for your family, you tack on $160 to get the same cell service from the promo. And yes, you can bolt on internet access -- promo pricing for that ranges between $30 to $50 per month for the first year. This could ultimately prove to be expensive if you're getting everything at once, but it's not often that you can spring for a single promo that theoretically covers all your needs.
