Are you considering signing up for DIRECTV satellite TV service? Before you pick a package, check out these deals on DIRECTV bundles, premium channels, and sports add-ons. And you can get all of these deals with DIRECTV’s CHOICE package (or higher).

DIRECTV bundle deals

Bundling is when you sign up for multiple services from the same company to enjoy convenience and a discount. If you can get AT&T internet in your area, you can save up to $10 a month by bundling DIRECTV with AT&T internet, phone service, or both.

DIRECTV with HBO Max and other premium channels

How many times have you signed up for cable or satellite TV only to find that you can’t afford the good stuff—premium channels like HBO®? Well, with DIRECTV you can get a full year of the HBO Max streaming service free with the CHOICETM package ($64.99*, 185+ channel) and above.

HBO Max doesn’t include the live HBO channels, but that’s a pro, not a con. For $14.99 per month, you can stream all HBO movies and shows, plus “Max Originals,” whenever you want. So no more living on someone else’s clock!

DIRECTV also offers three free months of HBO Max, CINEMAX®, EPIX, SHOWTIME®, and STARZ® with any DIRECTV package—a total monthly value of $56.98.

That means you could go save $5 a month with ENTERTAINMENT ($59.99 a month*, 160+ channels) instead of CHOICE. But you’d miss out on nine free months of HBO Max.

We recommend going with CHOICE. You’ll get the full year of HBO Max free, plus all of the other premium channels free for three months (a $56.98 value).

Just don’t forget to cancel your premium channels before the promo period ends or your monthly payment will get ugly. How ugly? Check this out: CHOICE ($64.99) plus HBO Max ($14.99) plus paying for all those other premiums.

* for 12 mos. plus taxes and Regional Sports Fee w/24-mo. agmt. Autopay & Paperless bill req’d. Prices higher in 2nd year. Regional Sports Fee up to $8.49/mo. is extra & applies.

DIRECTV with NFL SUNDAY TICKET and NBA League Pass

Do you enjoy fine sportsball action? Well, you’ll be thrilled to learn that, for a limited time, new DIRECTV customers who order CHOICE or above get the current seasons of both NFL SUNDAY TICKET and NBA League Pass free (a combined value of $595.89).

Do you realize how many out-of-market football and basketball games you can watch with that offer? A lot. You’re gonna be so popular. For a year, anyway.

Again, remember to cancel on time because NFL SUNDAY TICKET and NBA League Pass auto-renew, too. And, if forgetting to cancel the premium channels makes your payment an eyesore, imagine getting a monster $600 bill for these add-ons. (Avert your eyes! It’s hideous!)

DIRECTV with a $200 AT&T Visa® Reward Card

You know what makes signing a two-year DIRECTV contract easier? Getting a $200 AT&T Visa® Reward Card for ordering DIRECTV online.

You can apply your reward card to your first two to three months of DIRECTV service or, I dunno, see how many ribs you can buy to enjoy with your NFL SUNDAY TICKET couch sessions.

It gets better: Until March 31, 2021, DIRECTV offers an extra $50 AT&T Visa Reward Card at checkout with a “qualifying TV product” (psssst—CHOICE package and above). Watch for the prompt during checkout.

If you don’t see it, you may have chosen an ineligible package. But try using the DIRECTV promo code GETNOW anyway. If it works? Great. If not, you at least scored a bunch of free premium channels, two heavy-duty sports add-ons, and 200 bucks worth of ribs.

Can I lower my DIRECTV bill?

Call 1-800-DIRECTV and ask for customer retention to see if you can lower your bill. Politely explain that your payment is too high and you want to see if DIRECTV could do anything to lower it. It doesn’t hurt to tell DIRECTV that you’re researching other providers, either.
