If you like NFL football, right now would be the time.
If you don't care, November or December would be your best bet.
Typically, January/February is the worst time to get a deal for multiple reasons. Many people just got a TV for Christmas (or a Thanksgiving Black Friday sale) and may be inclined to switch to a new provider. All companies tend to have sales pushes at the end of the year to work up their sales quota for the year, so you are probably going to get a better deal at the end of the year.
After the new year though, the push for new customers may not be as big, and with people buying new TV's they might switch in January or February without questions asked.
My completely uneducated guess is November, OR the last week of December (right after Christmas BUT still in this sales year) is the best bet for a good deal.
[Disclaimer] The definition of "soon" is based solely on DirecTV's interpretation of the word, and all similarities with dictionary definitions of the word "soon" are purely coincidental and should not be interpreted as a time frame that will come to pass within a reasonable amount of time.
