AT&T Offers $39 U-Verse Bundle With TV, HBO, U-Verse Internet and Amazon Prime

The vast majority of three-piece bundles from cable companies include Internet, television channels, and landline phone service rolled into a single package. That's fine and dandy, but there are a growing number of cord cutters who have no interest in a landline, or even full blown cable or satellite TV service for the matter. Kudos to AT&T for partnering with HBO and Amazon to offer a different kind of package.

Starting at $39 per month, you can get AT&T U-verse high-speed Internet, U-verse TV, HBO, and a year of Amazon Prime service, the latter of which is a $99 value by itself. Yes, it's the full Amazon Prime experience, which means free 2-day shipping on millions of qualifying items, discounted 1-day shipping, unlimited streaming to its catalog of TV shows and movies, Prime music (unlimited streaming of over a million songs), and the right to borrow books from the Kindle Owners' Lending Library.

The caveat? You have to sign a one-year service agreement. However, that beats services like DirecTV, where you're on the hook for 2 years with discounted rates only applying to the first year. Granted, after your contract is up, the $39 price might go up, though you're free to bail at that point (if you leave early, there's a $180 early termination charge).

What you get for that $39/month plan is basic cable TV, HBO, HBO Go, Internet Max Plus (18Mbps), and Amazon Prime. You can tweak the package to include more cable TV channels or faster Internet access. For example, jumping to 24Mbps increases the cost to $49/month, while selecting the top-tier 45Mbps speed pushes the price to $59/month. All of those are pretty good deals for what you're getting in return, especially if you don't watch a lot of cable TV (prices rise a bit more rapidly when adding more channels).
