With the Ultimate package, you'll take home all the channels found in XTRA plus 15 new ones, including the Encore movie suite (8 channels), The Movie Channels (2), Lifetime Movie Network (LMN), Smithsonian Channel, UNIVERSO, American Heroes Channel, Cowboy Channel and more. Thanks to a solid combination of new and base programming, this is DIRECTV's most highly-rated plan three years running.

Ultimate is $20 more per month than XTRA, so if you want to boost your movie options or you watch a lot of live soccer (UNIVERSO), give this package a shot. If just a couple of the new channels make it on your must-watch list, it's probably worth the few extra bucks a month.

PERFECT FOR: folks that REALLY enjoy their movies, especially the indies and classics.

Frequently Asked Questions

What's the biggest reason people upgrade from Choice to Ultimate?

In a word, movies. Ultimate includes 15 additional movie channels, all of them full-time and premium. If you tend to rent a lot of On Demand movies, you might be better off upgrading.

If I switch, will my contract be reset?

No. Unlike some providers that reset your contract anytime you make a change to your plan, DIRECTV lets you upgrade or downgrade as many times as you like, no fees or contract resets, ever.
