Looking for a new TV service? It's important to pick the right provider for your needs.
Sports is an important part of LA life, so if you're looking for a package that offers coverage of the Rams, Chargers, Kings, Dodgers, Lakers, and more, we recommend DIRECTV. With DIRECTV, you can get any number of sports add-ons, like the vastly popular NFL SUNDAY TICKET, which gets you access to every game, every Sunday-including out-of-market games! DISH is also a strong contender in this category, with the most advanced DVR currently on the market (the Hopper® 3 Smart DVR). With the Hopper 3, you can record up to 16 shows at a time and enjoy free HD for Life.
If satellite isn't an option or you don't want to deal with the reliability issues that sometimes crop up with satellite service, AT&T U-verse, Frontier, Cox, and Spectrum are all available in the LA area. Of these options, Spectrum offers the most HD channels in addition to free DVR service in some areas. Cox, on the other hand, is the top-rated provider* in LA in terms of customer satisfaction. Meanwhile, AT&T U-verse offers an impressive selection of sports channels (over 40 of which are in HD), and Frontier customers get free professional installation when they sign up for service.
Overall, there are no wrong answers when it comes to choosing your TV provider, but it helps to choose the provider that offers the specific perks you need. So before selecting your new service, check out our table above to get a better idea of the benefits offered by each provider. You can also view plans for each provider to see the specific options available in your neighborhood.
