You can bundle your DIRECTV service with AT&T Internet (as long as AT&T offers internet service in your area). Bundling AT&T Internet and satellite TV together can save you $10 per month. DIRECTV used to bundle with other internet providers, but now the only official bundles are with AT&T.
If AT&T Internet isn’t available where you live, you probably have other internet options as well. You can quickly find all available internet options available to you by typing your zip code into our search tool.
Some areas have half a dozen internet options to pair with your DIRECTV service, while others have just a few. And if you live in a rural or hard-to-reach area, you’ll probably be able to get internet from a satellite provider. In some locations, satellite internet is the only internet option.
There aren’t any satellite internet and TV bundles, since these services are offered by different companies, but getting both is still a good idea if you live in a remote or rural area.
You can get HughesNet or Viasat satellite internet service along with DIRECTV, but it isn’t technically a bundle. You’ll need to sign up with each service separately, but they complement each other well. Using satellite TV service along with satellite internet will cut down on the need for video streaming in your household, saving you a lot of money in internet data costs.
We recommend Viasat over HughesNet for most satellite internet users, since Viasat speeds are faster in many areas. Viasat also offers more data on average—up to 300 GB per month with the biggest Viasat plan. Of course, you can’t get faster speeds and more data without paying more—Viasat prices are slightly higher than HughesNet (with the exception of Viasat’s slow Liberty plans, which top out at 12 Mbps).
