DIRECTV Entertainment Package

The Starter

A solid all-around plan, this is the package we suggest former cable subscribers look at first. With an impressive mix of genres and networks (all packed into 160 all-digital channels), the ENTERTAINMENT plan stacks up quite favorably against cable's most popular line-ups. And since cost is the top reason folks leave cable, it'll maximize your savings, both short and long-term. The ENTERTAINMENT package has approximately 25 less channels than Choice (see below for that list), so provided those channels aren't on your must-have list, give this plan some serious consideration.

For 12 months after instant savings with 24 mo. agreement. Plus add'l fees. Auto Bill Pay required.
Regular: $90
You'll get...
  • Over 160 Channels
  • Free Genie DVR System1
  • No HD or DVR monthly fees
  • Free Local Channels
  • Free Installation
  • Free movie channels (details at the bottom of the page)
  • SonicTap Music channels
  • Access to DIRECTV on Demand

Plan:



As mentioned, ENTERTAINMENT is essentially the Choice plan minus ~30 channels. Some of the channels you won't get:
Sports: ESPNews, ESPNU, MLB Network, NFL Network
Movies: Independent Film Channel (IFC), Lifetime Movie Network
Educational: Science Channel, Cooking Channel
Other: CNBC World, Comedy TV, Fox Business, Fuse TV, GSN, Science and SEC Network
NFL SUNDAY TICKET: along with Select, they're the ONLY plans that don't include the Ticket free at sign-up (Choice and up, all new subscribers qualify for the offer)

So, die-hard sports fans aren't likely to dig this plan. Otherwise, it doesn't skimp on family, news and other general-interest programming.

PERFECT FOR: the non-sports fan looking to dramatically slash their bill.

Check out the table below for a complete list of all the channels included:
