Below you'll find the best DirecTV deals so you can get the best mix of channels at the lowest price. DirecTV currently offers five packages – and the more you spend, the more channels you'll get. That could also mean more HD channels and more sport in 4K HDR.

To help you pay less to watch more, we've listed the best DirecTV deals below. And with Black Friday and Cyber Monday coming soon, the discounts are coming thick and fast...

What is DirecTV?

DirecTV is a satellite subscription TV service provider owned by AT&T. It's billed as 'The number one satellite service in the US', boasts over 26million subscribers and offers a mix of live and on demand TV.

All DirecTV packages come with a satellite dish and the company's Genie HD DVR, which allows users to record up to five shows at once and store over 200 hours of TV, so there should be less fighting over who can watch what, when.

You also get the DirecTV App, which means you can watch live and on-demand shows on mobile devices (over wi-fi). You can even download your DVR recordings to devices and watch offline.

How much does DirecTV cost?

DirecTV's top tier Premier package ($134.99 per month) includes a whopping 330+ channels, access to live, out-of-market NFL games, plus premium channels such as HBO.

Of course, you can enjoy DirecTV for much less. The budget-friendly Entertainment Package ($64.99 per month) gets you 160+ channels including ESPN and NBCSN.

Worth noting: all prices are based on a 24-month contract, and DirecTV reserves the right to make a small adjustment to the price of your chosen package after 12 months.

Also worth knowing: DirecTV is part of AT&T, so if you bundle your TV package with an  AT&T internet package, you could get up to $300 back in reward cards.
