I got the same email, so I went to check my account and it showed next bill to be 215$!!! I tried to chat online but the estimated wait time was 21 minutes. So it seams instead of getting credited 5$/month for HBO, they are trying to get the cost of their Apple TVs back!
Got email yesterday, HBO is available NOW, and tomorrow's bill is for $35. Not a streamer, per se, but DTV Now is pretty good for $35/month. HBO included HBO East, HBO Family, and on demand.

For people who want to try DIRECTV NOW, I would advise to wait. The service is terrible right now. I can stream any other service without issues, but direct tv now buffers, freezes and has a weird robotic voice issue. Also they keep promising DVR, but that is still just a promise. I would probably pay $10 a month for the service, but at $35+, it is just not worth it yet.
Same here email yesterday HBO today - now if they add DVR and CBS and app for Samsung smart TVs I am happy camper as i can sell the apple tv which will pay for 3-4 months of service. I have no streaming issue whatsoever - because I have Uverse internet and am their postpaid mobile customer? I had the uverse TV+internet and changed to this - am saving $20 a month which allows me to buy sub to netflix and still come out $10 winner.
DirectvNow said: Your Go Big plan will automatically start on Apr 15, 2017 at 7 PM EST and you will be charged $215.00.
When I go to payment history, it shows I will be billed $215, however going to "Manage my Plan" shows my plan will renew at $40. I had HBO added before and also received e-mail about 1 year free offer. I should be charged $35 then, not $215 or even $40. What a messed up company! Where is promised Roku Channel?
According to FAQ on their website, subscribers who are already paying for HBO should receive monthly credit for the next year.~~Existing paid subscriber with HBO Since you're already enjoying HBO: •We've added the monthly discount in order to zero rate the monthly HBO charge.

Your discount is effective for exactly one year, at which time the discount will automatically drop and the monthly HBO programming charge resumes. You must keep your “Go Big” or “Gotta Have It” DIRECTV NOW package to keep your HBO discount.
Looks like I am not billed for month of March - I started on Nov 30 with Apple TV offer with the Go Big plan grandfathered in @ $35 which would have ended on Feb 28 and should have been charged for month of March but it says I will be billed on April 7th... As much dysfunctional this is - its helping me so am OK with it but worry that somewhere down the line i will end up on wrong side and will have to face that issue.... Still keeping it and hopefully this 'beta' stage gets over and DTVN gets its stuff together and offer DVR and CBS.
