Illinois-based Consolidated Communications is enhancing its video offerings by giving broadband customers across its 24 state footprint access to AT&T’s DirecTV Now streaming service.

Customers can get a free seven-day trial before signing up for packages that start at $35 per month. They may also be eligible for additional perks with a prepaid subscription, such as an Amazon Fire TV 4K stick.

“Our customers want the best in TV content including diverse programming choices and on-the-go flexibility at competitive rates,” Rob Koester, VP of product management, consumer services at Consolidated Communications, said in a statement. “DirecTV Now answers our customers’ call while supplementing our video offerings. We’re thrilled to be able to offer DirecTV Now to our customers.”

Since closing on its acquisition of FairPoint Communications last July, Consolidated now offers services across 24 states with a fiber network that spans more than 36,000 route miles.

Last year, Consolidated added HBO Now and fuboTV, offering broadband customers access to the services without the need for a traditional pay TV subscription.
