Different Direct TV Programming Plans

Published on Author Dawn RosenthalLeave a comment

I already knew that I was going to get satellite TV service. What I did not know was what package I wanted. Money was not an issue because the prices for all of the DirecTV packages were already very low. I just wanted to make sure that I was getting the right plan. I did not want to get a plan that was missing channels that I really like, nor did I want to get a plan that had an excess of channels that I would never watch. I decided to go online and look at the different packages to see which one would be the best plan as well as the best deal.

There are so many packages, which did not make my choice easier at first. The Select package is the lowest priced one, and it as over 135 popular channels in it, including family programming as well as news, educational channels and locals as well. Moving up to the next package, the Entertainment is only five dollars more and it has additional channels like ESPN. The Choice is only five dollars more, and it has over 40 more channels than the Select plan.

Notice a trend yet? The XTRA is five dollars more, and there are over 220 channels in it. The Ultimate plan has over 240 channels, and the Premier has every channel in addition to premium movie channels. See why my choice was so hard to make? I finally decided to go with the Choice plan since it was in the middle of the pack. I knew that I could always downgrade or upgrade if I needed to, but it turned out that the Choice is the perfect one for me. Having so many choices available means that a person is going to get exactly what they want, which is the best way a company can put the customer first.
