You could get a 48-inch Samsung Smart TV for no charge, but only if you're willing to buy other expensive products and services first.

Is a new smart TV on your wish list? AT&T recently announced it’s giving away “free” 48-inch Samsung Smart TVs to qualifying customers. But the wireless carrier’s TV deal comes with conditions — you need to jump through some hoops and spend some money first.

Through the month of April, AT&T wireless and DirecTV customers can get their hands on a so-called free TV, but only if they buy a Samsung Galaxy S7 (approximately $695) or Galaxy S7 edge (approximately $795) on an AT&T Next plan and activate either a new AT&T wireless line or a new DirecTV service, then submit a claim form for the TV online.

Phew. That seems like a long – and expensive – checklist.

Remember, AT&T now owns DirecTV, so it’s no surprise that its pushing both its phone and television service package.

“We’re making wireless and entertainment better together every day,” said David Christopher, chief marketing officer, AT&T Entertainment Group.  “Our customers get the benefit of the Galaxy S7 on our fantastic 4G LTE network, plus this great Samsung Smart TV for our award-winning DirecTV.”

Perhaps DroidLife.com sums up AT&T’s “free” TV deal the best:

Bottom line, if you want to buy a Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge, but aren’t using an upgrade with existing DirecTV service in place, yet are willing to sign up for DirecTV service, you can probably get a free TV, assuming they aren’t already out of stock.
