Cable, satellite, and streaming TV in Los Angeles, CA

Hello, current or prospective Los Angeles resident who likes TV as much as we do. Let’s cut to the chase and find you the best TV deal in town.

We’re looking at three main TV providers in Los Angeles: cable TV service Spectrum and satellite TV providers DIRECTV and DISH—plus live TV streaming services like YouTube TV.

Ready? Pretend we’re at a Lakers game and yell, “LET’S GOOOOOOO!” Or chill and keep reading.

Best TV providers in Los Angeles

  • DIRECTV—best for sports NFL SUNDAY TICKET free (current season)
  • DISH—best overall TV provider, best for kids
  • Spectrum—best value
  • YouTube TV—best live TV streaming service

Since DIRECTV and DISH are satellite services, you can get them almost anywhere in the city. Same goes for YouTube TV, which you can get anywhere as long as you also have a 25–50 Mbps internet connection. Spectrum, being a cable provider, is more location-dependent.

We recommend DISH as the best overall TV provider for its two-year price guarantee, high channel count, and excellent Hopper 3 DVR. It’s also our pick for the best TV provider for kids because of its many kids channels and superior parental controls. Unfortunately, DISH doesn’t have HBO®.

DIRECTV has tons of sports channels andgives new customers the current seasons of NBA League Pass and NFL SUNDAY TICKET free. You guessed it—DIRECTV is our best-for-sports pick. It also includes the Genie DVR free with all plans. But beware of its two-year contracts and second-year price hikes.

All Spectrum channels are in HD, and its top two packages include free premium channels, which makes it the best channel value. But Spectrum’s DVR storage is low (90 hours) and its price is high ($17.98 a month).

Finally, we named YouTube TV the best live TV streaming service for its reasonable pricing, 85 channels, 3 streams, and unlimited cloud DVR.

What is live TV streaming?

Live TV streaming services deliver live TV channels over the internet via a streaming device like an Amazon Fire TV Stick or Roku Ultra. You can also watch streaming services on your personal computer, smartphone, or tablet.

These services have fewer channels than cable or satellite TV, but the channel lineups tend to include more popular channels, which means lower prices. And streaming services don’t have lengthy contracts—month-to-month is how they roll.

At CableTV.com, we love the freedom and simplicity of streaming TV. Browse our guide to the Best TV Streaming Services to learn more about Hulu + Live TV, Sling TV, and our favorite, YouTube TV.

Cable TV and internet bundles in Los Angeles

Only two providers offer cable and internet bundles in Los Angeles: DIRECTV (with AT&T internet) and Spectrum. Let’s go over the best cable TV and internet bundle from each provider.

Best TV and internet bundles in Los Angeles

† for 12 months plus taxes & internet equip. fee w/ 24-mo. TV agmt & combined bill. Autopay & Paperless bill req’d. Prices higher in 2nd year. $10/mo. internet equip. fee applies

In Los Angeles, you have two excellent options for internet and TV bundles: DIRECTV or Spectrum. That’s because DISH and YouTube TV don’t offer internet service—you’ll have to find another internet provider if you choose either of those TV providers.

Usually we’d recommend DIRECTV’s CHOICETM All-Included + AT&T Internet ($104.99 a month), but we noticed that ULTIMATE is only $5 more per month—for an extra 65 channels. That’s a good value, especially with all the freebies (see deals section above).

But AT&T Internet is DSL. Spectrum’s Double Play Gold bundle ($139.98 a month for 12 months) offers cable Internet that’s four times faster—and its included premium channels are a permanent part of your package, not a limited-time promotion. That’s totally worth the extra 30 bucks.

At CableTV, we compare major TV and Internet Service Providers to help you decide on which is right for you. Here’s a quick look at our findings for Los Angeles:

DIRECTV review
DIRECTV has some finicky things we don’t like—autorenewing “free” perks and raising prices after it’s locked you into a contract. But its perks are pretty impressive, especially its sports programming and included Genie DVR.

DISH review
DISH’s channel packages have all the same essentials that DIRECTV’s do, minus much of the bloat. Admittedly, the lack of NFL SUNDAY TICKET and HBO channels stings, but we still like DISH’s streamlined, transparent pricing.

Los Angeles FAQs

How can I watch TV without cable?

You can pass on a cable subscription and still watch TV by hooking up a TV antenna or signing up for a streaming service.

Go for a TV antenna if you want local channels without ongoing payments. Streaming services have tons of cable TV channels, but they work best if you have fast, reliable internet.

Who has the fastest internet in Los Angeles?

AT&T Fiber is the way to go if you want the fastest download speeds in Los Angeles. No other major provider in the city can touch its gig speeds:

  • AT&T Fiber’s download speeds reach 1,000 Mbps.
  • Frontier’s download speeds reach 500 Mbps
  • Spectrum’s download speeds reach 400 Mbps.
  • Cox’s download speeds reach 300 Mbps.
  • Viasat’s download speeds reach 25 Mbps.
What is the best internet provider in Los Angeles?

Not only does AT&T have high speeds, but it also offers equipment for no extra charge. You’ll save a bunch of money on your modem and router—and you’ll have experts to help you if anything goes wrong.

In our 2019 customer satisfaction survey, participants ranked AT&T especially high in overall value. If you want to skip hours of research for an internet provider, AT&T will take care of you.

What cable companies are in Los Angeles?

Right now, Spectrum is the only cable company in Los Angeles—but satellite providers DIRECTV and DISH also provide TV service in the LA area. And you can always try live TV streaming services like YouTube TV, which are available wherever you can get a solid internet connection.

What cable companies are in California?

Cox, Spectrum, and Xfinity provide cable television in California. If you’re open to satellite TV, you can get DIRECTV and DISH throughout most of the state. And live TV streaming services like AT&T TV, fuboTV, Hulu + Live TV, Sling TV, and YouTube TV are available anywhere you can get a good internet connection.

Who has the cheapest cable TV?

In Los Angeles, Spectrum TV® Select has 125+ channels for $44.99 per month for 12 months. That’s the cheapest plan we can find, aside from basic cable plans (which we don’t recommend).

Paying monthly for a basic cable plan is outrageous when you can get all the same channels with an over-the-air (OTA) antenna for a one-time payment of about $30.

What are the best cable and internet bundles in Los Angeles?

Spectrum Double Play Gold ($139.98 a month for 12 months) has 200+ live TV channels—all in HD—including HBO MaxTM, NFL Network, SHOWTIME, STARZ, STARZENCORE, and TMC. You’ll also get 400 Mbps (wireless speeds may vary) Internet service. That’s a killer deal.

Alternatively, if you don’t mind slower internet, you can get 250+ channels plus 100 Mbps DSL internet with DIRECTV ULTIMATE All-Included + AT&T Internet for $109.99 a month.

Which is the best TV provider in Los Angeles?

DISH is our pick for the best overall TV provider—and the best TV provider for kids—and it’s available in Los Angeles. We recommend the America’s Top 200 plan, which has 240+ channels, 500 hours of HD storage, and 16 simultaneous recordings for $89.99 a month.
