DIRECTV service FAQ
Does DIRECTV service my area?
Yes, DIRECTV service is available nationwide.
With the few exceptions of apartment buildings or houses without a south-facing mounting surface (for the satellite dish), you can get DIRECTV service from way down in the Bayou all the way up to the Northern Lights.
Can I install DIRECTV myself?
No, you can’t install DIRECTV yourself. A DIRECTV technician will be dispatched to install your satellite dish and get your DIRECTV service up and running.
During the new coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, technicians will be cleaning equipment and practicing social distancing.
How can I watch DIRECTV on the go?
Your DIRECTV service includes on-the-go viewing with the DIRECTV app. With your smartphone or tablet, you can download the DIRECTV app on the App Store or Google Play.
The app will hook you up with DIRECTV live stream TV, but you’ll need internet access. If you want to watch offline, you can download recordings from your cloud DVR ahead of time.
Heads up—DIRECTV has loads of positive reviews on the App Store, but Google Play users comment that a recent update ruined the functionality of the app. We’ll keep our fingers crossed for patches that fix the problem.
Does DIRECTV have a mobile app?
It certainly does. The DIRECTV app gives you a chance to watch live and on-demand programming anytime, anywhere. You can stream on five devices at once and choose from more than 45,000 movies and shows.
What is the cheapest DIRECTV package?
DIRECTV’s cheapest offering is the ENTERTAINMENT package. At $64.99 for the first year, it gives you 160+ channels, including multiple ESPN and Disney channels, along with FX and IFC. A group of premium channels—HBO Max included—are free for the first three months.
Does DIRECTV offer a discount for senior citizens?
No. DIRECTV does not currently offer any discounts for seniors.
