With more than 20 million customers, DIRECTV currently holds the top spot among American satellite TV services. Although DIRECTV Internet service is not available as an individual product, DIRECTV does offer Internet and phone bundles through partnerships with HDBundles.com.
DIRECTV, Internet and Phone Bundling Options
By choosing DIRECTV bundles, consumers can get high-speed Internet and phone service along with satellite television.
DIRECTV offers two bundling options: the double play (DIRECTV + Internet) and triple play (DIRECTV + Internet + phone). The bundle offers are similar to those available from other types of providers, such as cable-Internet and cable-Internet-phone bundles.
DIRECTV Internet Service Partners
DIRECTV partners with some of the nation’s leading telecommunications providers, such as:
- Cincinnati Bell
Many of the DIRECTV partners offer both Internet and phone service, while others offer Internet only.
Available Features with DIRECTV Internet and Phone Bundles
DIRECTV service options include:
- A selection of several programming packages, with channel counts ranging from 130+ to 285+

Availability of TV and Internet features may vary with package selection, location and other factors. Be sure to review offer details for more information.
Benefits of Bundling
The widespread availability of bundled services suggests that consumers find a lot to like about bundle deals.
For example, many bundles come with discounts, special rate offers and other incentives. Bundles also offer the convenience of a one-stop shopping experience. The consumer doesn’t have to start over and begin a search for each individual provider at square one.
Benefits of bundling can also include consolidated billing, which allows customers to receive a single statement covering the charges from all providers instead of having to pay multiple bills separately.
The Satellite TV-Satellite Internet Connection
For residents of rural communities, satellite antennas may offer the most viable option for receiving TV, Internet or both. Coverage by cable Internet and DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) doesn’t always extend to remote areas. The slower connection speeds of dial-up Internet don’t provide the level of performance that many of today’s online experiences require.
Satellite Internet service is available with certain DIRECTV bundles. HughesNet and Exede, two of DIRECTV’s bundle partners, offer high-speed Internet via satellite dish. These services use equipment and technology similar to that of dishNET, DISH Network’s high-speed Internet product.
In terms of connection speeds, satellite Internet service is much faster than dial-up and compares favorably with DSL.
