  • Expensive packages

DIRECTV is an immensely popular service; it can be found not only in homes but in a variety of establishments like businesses and restaurants. This may be because of their unique sports packages. Because of the growing popularity of streaming services like Netflix and Hulu, live programming, like sports, keep television service relevant. That’s why DIRECTV packages like the NFL Sunday Ticket remain in high demand.

DIRECTV is not the most cost-effective option on the table. When you subscribe to anything beyond the  basic service, you’ll likely pay well over $30 a month. However, you won’t find a service that offers exactly the same things that it does for much cheaper.

According to customer reviews, DIRECTV is susceptible to frequent but brief losses of signal, which is typical of satellite.

Verdict – Excellent

Despite the fact that DIRECTV is expensive compared to other top providers, it offers some of the best features and packages. You’d be hard-pressed to find a service that offers the same features and as many channels.
