“AT&T is prepared to go all out on behalf of its new DirecTV Now service: The company is looking to give away Apple TV and Fire TV Stick devices to consumers who sign up for its TV streaming service, according to customer-support documents Variety discovered after they were inadvertently released by the company online,” Janko Roettgers reports for Variety.

“The documents also shed light on which channels are part of the service that they haven’t yet announced, as well as further details about its VOD library and other key features,” Roettgers reports. “The leaked documents detail that consumers who are willing to commit to at least three months of paid service will be able to get a free Apple TV as part of a device promotion.
