DIRECTV will pair with any internet service available in your area, but DIRECTV doesn’t offer special TV and internet bundles. That means you can get internet service and DIRECTV service separately, but you can’t get them from the same provider with a discount.
DIRECTV is a great option if you have satellite internet because it won’t require internet data to watch TV. This can save you money, particularly if your internet options are limited or come with low data caps.
For heavy data users, we recommend Viasat satellite internet with DIRECTV. Viasat plans offer more data on average—up to 300 GB per month with the priciest Viasat plan.
For households with minimal data usage (checking email, browsing, etc.), or for people on a tight budget, HughesNet satellite internet is a better choice.
Satellite is more expensive than other internet services, so we don’t recommend it to people who live in big cities or suburbs or have other internet options available.
