DIRECTV’s four satellite TV plans are loaded with entertainment, sports, and news channels. But not all of them will give you every viewing choice you might want. As with any service, you pay more to get more.

You also get a trickier contract with DIRECTV than with DISH, meaning your monthly bill will nearly double in 12 months instead of 24. That’s something to consider for your budget.

We’ve compiled a side-by-side pricing and channels comparison below, and listed over 25 available add-on packages, to enhance any DIRECTV channel lineup (even PREMIER, which is already hefty at over 330 channels).

Which DIRECTV plan is the best?

DIRECTV’s satellite plans range from semi-basic to super-loaded. Of its four channel lineups, we like CHOICE because it offers a great mix of sports, entertainment, and news channels at a reasonable price. However, if you’re looking to pay more (or less), DIRECTV’s other plans are worth checking out.

ENTERTAINMENT: Best budget option

With over 160 channels, DIRECTV’s ENTERTAINMENT plan is comparable to a basic cable package: you get local channels and a smattering of popular entertainment and news networks. It’s good for casual viewers, but if you’re a sports fan, you’ll probably find ENTERTAINMENT lacking.

CHOICE: Best overall

As mentioned above, CHOICE gives you plenty of channels (185+) for your buck, including a wider array of sports networks than ENTERTAINMENT (including ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNEWS, ESPNU, NBA TV, and DIRECTV’s own Sportsmax). CHOICE is a good choice to keep your household entertained.

ULTIMATE: Best for sports fans

ULTIMATE, with over 250 channels, carries nearly every sports channel DIRECTV has to offer, including FS1, FS2, NFL Network, NHL Network, and others not included with CHOICE. It also features eight STARZ ENCORE movie channels, should you feel the need to take a break from the sports action.

PREMIER: Best for TV power-viewers

Even the most hardcore TV fanatics might never get through all of its 330 channels, but DIRECTV’s Premier plan almost guarantees you’ll never be at a loss for something to watch. In addition to a complete sports lineup, PREMIER also includes full HBO, CINEMAX, SHOWTIME, and STARZ suites.
