Cable TV and internet in Philadelphia, PA

Xfinity bases its headquarters in Philadelphia, and the city runs on some of the top internet speeds and best TV packages in the US. Let’s take a look at the highlights of the providers in your area:

What are the best TV and cable companies in Philadelphia?

  • Verizon Fios—Personalized TV plans
  • DISH—2-year price lock
  • DIRECTV—NFL SUNDAY TICKET
  • Xfinity—Cloud DVR

What are the best internet providers in {CITY}?

  • Verizon Fios—Matched upload/download speeds
  • Xfinity—xFi Gateway modem/router
  • Viasat—3-year price lock

If you’ve ever thought it’s a waste to pay for TV channels you don’t even like, check out Verizon Fios’s Your Fios TV plans. This plan lets you choose your top five channels, and then Verizon builds a personalized channel lineup with similar choices.

Goodbye weird channels you never watched—we won’t miss them. But if you prefer having a pre-designed selection, there’s more than one TV provider in the neighborhood.

DISH and DIRECTV are both satellite TV services, but DISH’s pricing is more straightforward thanks to its two-year price lock. DIRECTV’s prices rise in the second year of your contract, but it’s the best place to get extras like NFL SUNDAY TICKET on DIRECTV CHOICE and above for those out-of-market NFL games.

As for internet, Verizon Fios Home Internet has a lot to offer. With high speeds, excellent prices, and top-notch customer service in case something goes wrong, it’s one of the best broadband internet providers out there.

It’s always nice to have choices, though. Xfinity has fast download speeds and a powerful modem/router (the xFi Gateway) that makes regulating your family’s internet usage simple.

And if your home doesn’t connect to internet landlines, Viasat offers a satellite internet solution. Its prices are higher and the data allowance is lower compared to Philadelphia’s other ISPs, but it’s a last-ditch option to save you from never being able to stream Netflix. Some internet is better than no internet.

Cable TV and internet bundles in Philadelphia

When you want to fill your home with both TV chatter and the warm glow of a computer with open internet browsers, take a look at Verizon Fios and Xfinity.

Verizon Fios uses fiber-optic technology to get you fast internet and high-definition TV. And when you get both services, you can add on home phone for only $20 more per month.

Xfinity has perks for bundling internet and TV too—you can save up to $20 per month when you get two of its services. Xfinity also has home phone and security options, if you’re the type to be prepared for everything. The more services you combine, the more you’ll save.

Top TV and internet bundles in Philadelphia

  • Verizon Fios—Add home phone service for $20/mo.
  • Xfinity—Save up to $20/mo. on any two services

Most popular TV channels in Philadelphia

Philadelphians have some brotherly love for lifestyle and entertainment channels like BET and OWN, plus sports channels like FS1. Many sports fans in Philadelphia follow out-of-region soccer on beIN SPORTS and basketball on NBA TV.

And PHL17, Univision, and 69 News are some of the most popular places to keep up with local news and culture. No worries—you’ll be able to catch all of Philadelphia’s favorites and more with a plan from Verizon or DIRECTV.

    All these channels are hard to assemble into one package—beIN SPORTS is especially tricky to find. But if you want all these Philly favorites, go for Verizon Fios’s More Fios TV or The Most Fios TV packages. Or you can splurge on DIRECTV’s PREMIER™ package for NFL SUNDAY TICKET.

    Verizon’s More Fios TV package is a cost effective way to get Philadelphia’s favorite channels all in one place. It comes with over 300 channels, including specialized sports channels.

    DIRECTV’s PREMIER has a lot to offer in addition to your Philly favorites, including HBO® and CINEMAX®. But it costs about $45 per month more than Verizon’s The Most Fios TV. And DIRECTV requires a two-year contract—with prices jumping in the second year.

    We say pass on DIRECTV’s high prices unless you’re a die-hard football fan who has to have NFL SUNDAY TICKET.

    Philadelphia sports coverage

    If you want to keep up with Philadelphia’s sports teams, you’re going to need NBC Sports Philadelphia.
