What Is the Cheapest AT&T® Package?

Update 4/6/20: AT&T has stopped selling its fiber and cable TV service, AT&T U-verse, and replaced it with a livestreaming service called AT&T TV. This new product comes with a set-top box that’s compatible with tons of apps and costs $39.99–$59.99 a month with a two-year contract (you know, the thing people usually get streaming services to avoid).

There are some nice deals available if you bundle AT&T Internet with AT&T TV, but otherwise, AT&T TV’s contract and higher expense aren’t really worth it. If you’re looking for another streaming provider, check out our best livestreaming guide.

From addictive dramas set in fantasy worlds to contemporary comedies that parody daily life, must-see shows premiere every season and provide abundant choices for quality entertainment. With a pay-TV package¹ from AT&T®, you can join millions of viewers eagerly awaiting the next episodes of “Outlander,” “Homeland,” and “Game of Thrones,” among others. AT&T U-verse TV offers hit networks, hundreds of movies, exciting sporting events, news coverage, lifestyle channels, and children’s programming — making it difficult to put down the remote.

Because DIRECTV® is now part of the AT&T family, DIRECTV is offered in areas where AT&T U-verse® is unavailable. If you’re searching for the cheapest AT&T TV package, take a closer look at the standalone TV and bundle options below. We highlight their prices, features, and channels, so you can choose the package that best fits your needs and budget.

Cheapest² AT&T U-verse TV Package: U-family

With over 200 channels, U-family offers something every member of your household will enjoy. This plan includes everything from Animal Planet to HGTV and from Food Network to National Geographic.

The U-family television package requires a 12-month contract in order to lock in the price of $50 per month. If you end your contract early, you may be charged up to $180.

Cheapest AT&T DIRECTV Package: SELECT

Standalone DIRECTV packages from AT&T offer a wide range of affordability — starting with the low-cost DIRECTV SELECT package.

Customers can upgrade their SELECT™ plan with the nine-channel DIRECTV HD Extra Pack — which offers networks such as MTV Live and Smithsonian HD — for $4.99 per month. Sports channel upgrades are also available and include FOX Soccer Plus, NFL Sunday Ticket, and MLB Extra Innings.


The SELECT™ plan includes the Genie® HD DVR and equipment for up to four rooms.

You’ll have access to movies and TV shows through the DIRECTV On Demand library — which holds more than 10,000 titles.


The SELECT™ plan is just $50 plus taxes per month for 12 months and requires a 24-month agreement. After 12 months, the price increases to $88 plus taxes per month. Early termination fees can reach up to $480.00 plus taxes if you disconnect your television service before the end of your agreement.
