When you need more custom or premium channels, DIRECTV lets you add a variety of add-on channel packs to your core plan. The nice part about add-on channels is you can add or remove them yourself - so, if there's a special event coming up, you can rent one for just a month. Finally, DIRECTV is now also offering a discount off your core plan if you get AMC+ or discovery+ (save $2/mo with each pack).

Add-on Channels

Netflix

Watch Netflix from DIRECTV's new Gemini device (no need to switch remotes or TV inputs).

AMC+

7 channels      $7.99/mo

Includes: AMC, BBC America, IFC, and Sundance TV

discovery+

7 channels      $4.99/mo

Most popular: HGTV, Food Network, TLC, ID, Animal Planet, Discovery Channel

Peacock Premium

Fox Nation

1 channel      $0.99/mo

How to get a plan:

You can order a DIRECTV plan either online or over the phone. The process tends to be about the same. In most cases, you can get more savings applied over the phone so we typically recommend that route first.
