Compare DIRECTV's Programming

Known for their variety and value, DIRECTV features a handful of industry-leading plans suitable to just about any taste... all at a reasonable price. For example, with the CHOICE™ programming package, you can get over 175 entertainment, movie and sports channels for just $60/mo; not surprisingly, it remains one of their most popular plans, 10 years running.

One of the major upsides of DIRECTV is the diversity of channels AND themes found in every pack. Whether you're looking for movie channels, locals, sports, HD or an international flair, you're sure to get the mix you want - and if not, you can easily add-on the programming you'd like for just a few extra bucks a month (compare the full line-up over to your right). Finally, keep in mind the pricing you see below is promotional - that is, that'll be your discounted price for 12 months (then a smaller discount in year two). After a couple years, it'll revert to the regular rate. If that ends up being a bit too costly, you can always downgrade your plan at no additional fee.

Specialty and Add-on Programming

Local Channels - Provided it's available in your area, every DIRECTV package now comes with a 100% free local channel package (ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, PBS, etc). Get local news, sports, and more all in HD digital quality.

Sports Programming - As discussed in our dish versus direct tv comparison, DIRECTV is at the cutting edge with the number and quality of sports channels (including being the exclusive provider of NFL SUNDAY TICKET).

Premium Movies - With free HBO, SHOWTIME and CINEMAX on most packages, many customers actually end up saving as they catch movies soon after they're out of theaters, instead of forking over $12 for a ticket. And if you're a fan of one of the original premium cable series (Boardwalk Empire, True Blood, How to make it in America, Dexter, Homeland, Weeds, etc.), you'll get the very most out of your entertainment dollar.

International Programming - DIRECT TV has you covered with a variety of foreign-language packages: Spanish, Chinese, Korean, Filipino, Vietnamese, Brazilian, South Asian, and Russian. Most of these channels feature fully-comprehensive, locally-immersive channels, not just simple dubbing or subtitles - you'll have hours of relevant, entertaining programming right at your fingertips.
