TV and Internet Providers in Las Vegas, Nevada
Cable TV and internet in Las Vegas, NV
Welcome to Las Vegas! We know you’re eager to hit the jackpot and buy a tiger, but let’s get your internet and TV service sorted out first. Priorities, y’know?
What are the best TV and cable companies in Las Vegas?
CenturyLink and Cox internet in Las Vegas
Here’s the bad news first: it’s slim pickings for internet service in Las Vegas. CenturyLink provides DSL and fiber internet to 99.3% of the area, while Cox covers 74.9% of Vegas with cable connections.
Only two major internet service providers in Las Vegas? You’d think that more providers would be scrambling to service the popular tourist town’s permanent population. But that’s the awesome power of the telecom mafia.*
(*That’s a joke—but it’s still weird, right?)
But it’s not like you don’t have any alternatives. You can get fixed wireless from Rise Broadband or LV.Net, which is fast and reliable but possibly more expensive than DSL. Or you can try satellite internet with HughesNet or Viasat, but it’s gonna be slower and more expensive.
So use fixed wireless or satellite only as a last resort, like if you live in a desert trailer and can’t get anything else.
DISH, DIRECTV, and Cox TV in Las Vegas
You’ve got more options for TV service: Cox (cable) or CenturyLink, DIRECTV, and DISH (satellite).
You might be a bit confused that CenturyLink, a DSL and fiber internet provider, offers satellite TV. That’s because CenturyLink’s TV service is through DIRECTV.
You may also be confused because we basically slammed satellite internet, but now we’re talking about satellite TV like it’s a good thing. That’s because satellite TV and satellite internet are very different services.
Satellite TV is available in both the city and the country, and it works the same wherever you live. So you’re gonna be fine with any of these four Las Vegas–area TV providers.
Cable TV and internet bundles in Las Vegas
Both CenturyLink and Cox have internet, phone, and TV service in double-play or triple-play bundles.
An advantage of bundling with CenturyLink is that its DSL plans include its Price for Life guarantee. That means your rate won’t increase for as long as you have your plan. Price for Life, however, covers only the internet and phone part of your bundle—not DIRECTV service. But it’s still a decent deal.
These are our favorite internet-TV double-play bundles from CenturyLink and Cox. We recommend CenturyLink over Cox if you can get its fiber plans in your area. Fiber is just a faster, more reliable way to connect. And you gotta love its matching upload speeds.

Vegas Golden Knights fans have one choice for watching their favorite hockey team on TV: the regional sports network (RSN), AT&T SportsNet. Cox, DIRECTV, and DISH all charge an additional monthly fee for access to RSNs, including SportsNet.
For reasons stated above (channel count, shorter contract, CenturyLink bundling, and value)—plus its abundance of sportsball—DIRECTV’s CHOICETM wins again.
