The Dish Vs DirecTV debate has been going on for a long time – the two main companies offering satellite TV services. Both have an expansive list of channels which allow digital quality viewing in your home, broadcasting a variety of shows in such categories as sports, movies, TV programs, etc. We are not going into what makes one better than the other, and in what aspects. Instead, let us just take a good look at what one of them offers subscribers.
This satellite TV service offers six packages, each fitted to cater to a certain lifestyle and budget. At the base side, you have the SELECT™ Package, which starts at $19.99/month for a year, bringing upwards of 145 popular channels in your home. At the other end you have the PREMIER™, packed with 315 channels and including more than 45 premium channels such as HBO®, SHOWTIME®, etc.
All DirecTV packages come with the option to add select programming, including premium movie networks and sports packs like NFL SUNDAY TICKET. With the number of options they are giving out, it is almost impossible to go wrong.
One of the reasons why DirecTV is so big is the fact that they don’t compromise on selection. While the competition tries to figure out a generic offering that everyone can like, DirecTV sticks to specialized services, which prioritize viewer experience. Here are some of the special TV packages for specific audiences.
- DIRECTV Premium Packages: You can add to your base package benefits with a wide choice of premium movie networks. You have HBO®, ENCORE®, SHOWTIME®, Cinemax® and STARZ® to choose from, with several additional channels given over to particular themes, like ENCORE® Action and HBO® Family.
- DIRECTV Sports Packages: Out-of-market NFL games in the comfort of your home. Local network affiliates won’t have this on offer. Also available from DirecTV are packages covering baseball, basketball, hockey, golf, soccer and more.
- DIRECTV International Packages: You have access to international channels with DirecTV, reducing the limitations of being physically away from your area of focus. Offered are four Spanish-language packages, or programming add-ons to your base package from Brazil, China, Russia, Vietnam, Korea, or Philippines.
- DIRECTV Business Packages: This is the perfect programming setup for any business environment. The business packages from DirecTV lend a comfortable ambience while still upholding a professional feel. This is suited for the hotel, gym, or office, and is sure to have everything your customers want to watch.
These are some of the special packages offered by DirecTV. These are not to be confused with the basic split ranging from the SELECT™ Package to the PREMIER™ Package.
