Feature Comparison of DIRECTV’s Top Plans
DIRECTV is the leading satellite TV provider largely due to its unique programming, pricing and entertainment options. That is, each of its five major plans target a specific type of consumer, making it quite easy for anyone to find their ideal package…at a very competitive price. In addition to a solid programming base, they’ve cornered the market on the NFL (with the SUNDAY TICKET) and, as a result, pulled way ahead in sports coverage (DISH has done a better job lately, but they’ll always be outgunned). So, if you have a sports junkie in your household, give DIRECTV a significant win in that category.
As for the rest of the important categories, check out the table below. We’ve filtered out all the marketing jargon to give you only the most important facts about each plan. Note that the prices and terms reflect the current promos so keep that in mind as you calculate your long-term costs. Once you’re done, you may want to compare DISH’s plans here.
