Sprint is making a time-limited offer of one year of free wireless service to DirecTV subscribers who switch over to them. The move is seen as a direct response to AT&T's bundled service offering that combines the cable TV service with its voice and data plans following the company's acquisition of DirectTV.

DIRECTV customers switching to Sprint need to upload copies of their bills on Sprint’s website to get 12 months of unlimited talk, text and a full 2GB of data per line (up to five lines). To qualify, an existing Sprint customer must add a new line of service and both new and existing customers must buy or lease a new phone through Sprint - and that's the catch!

Kevin Crull, chief marketing officer, Sprint
DIRECTV customers love their TV service – but they shouldn’t have to settle for AT&T wireless,” said . “Why not build the perfect bundle by combining with Sprint wireless? We’re winning awards across the country because our network has never been stronger, faster or more reliable, and our customers have never been more satisfied.
