DIRECTV At-A-Glance

Founded in 1990 and bought by AT&T in 2015, DIRECTV is a great company to pair with internet if your ISP imposes data caps (many satellite internet providers have data limits that reset each billing cycle). Streaming services take up a huge amount of internet bandwidth, accounting for over 50% of internet downloads in the world. DIRECTV can help you extend your data a little further each month.

Choosing DIRECTV as your TV and internet service provider is an excellent option for customers looking to save big while meeting their home entertainment needs. Part of the AT&T family, DIRECTV delivers both live and on-demand video entertainment using satellite and internet streaming technologies for residential and commercial customers. DIRECTV customers will enjoy instant access to the following unique benefits:

·   Premium Entertainment: Each of DIRECTV's service packages features three months of free access to premium networks. DIRECTV also offers the Movie Extra Pack and International Packages for customers who want endless movie channels or access to Brazilian, Chinese, Filipino, French, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Russian and Vietnamese programming.

·   Sports: The biggest sports fans will gain access to 40 regional and specialty sports networks with DIRECTV's sports package options.

·   Data-Free TV: When customers bundle wireless services with DIRECTV, they’ll enjoy instant access to their favorite shows on their phone, tablet or TV without using any of their data.

·   Bundle & Save: DIRECTV customers can bundle services with AT&T internet, home phone or wireless. They can also select bundles with internet services outside of AT&T in areas where AT&T internet service is not currently available.

DIRECTV Satellite TV Packages

DIRECTV internet packages depend on whether it has partnered with an internet service provider in your area. If it has, you may be able to bundle it with an internet package through that ISP. On its own, DIRECTV does, however, have satellite TV packages.

One Year of HBO Max™

Customers who select DIRECTV Choice or Ultimate packages with a 24-month agreement are eligible to receive one year of access to HBO Max™. They’ll also receive free access for three months to Cinemax, SHOWTIME, STARZ and EPIX.
