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 ENTERTAINMENT 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 three free months of the HBO Max streaming service free with the ENTERTAINMENT package ($64.99*, 160+ channels) 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 CINEMAX®, EPIX, SHOWTIME®, and STARZ® with any DIRECTV package—a total monthly value of $56.98.

We recommend going with CHOICETM ($69.99 a month, 15+ channels) so you’ll get three months of free premium-channel action plus NFL SUNDAY TICKET free (see next deal for more info).

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 ($69.99 a month) plus HBO Max ($14.99 a month) plus paying for all those other premiums ($56.98 a month) and NFL SUNDAY TICKET ($395.94 a year, which is about $33.00 a month) will make your monthly payment $174.96.

* 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.
† HBO Max offer subject to change.


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 season of NFL SUNDAY TICKET free.

Do you realize how many out-of-market football 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 auto-renews, too. And, if forgetting to cancel the premium channels makes your payment an eyesore, imagine getting a monster $300 bill for this add-on. (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.

What DIRECTV packages include HBO Max?

Three DIRECTV packages include HBO Max, but only one of those doesn’t charge you to keep the channel after the first year of service.

DIRECTV’s ENTERTAINMENT package (and higher) include HBO Max free for three months. After that, it auto-renews for $14.99 a month.

PREMIER is DIRECTV’s most robust package—in cost and number of channels (330+). HBO Max is included in the $134.99 a month price for this package, there’s no upcharge for HBO Max after the first year. Check out our review for a deep dive into the HBO Max streaming service.
