Compare DIRECTV and DISH
As the only two major satellite TV providers in the nation, DIRECTV and DISH have a lot in common. However, their prices and features vary in a few important instances that could really affect your satellite TV service.
Price versus Features
Overall, DIRECTV seems to be the more expensive of the two providers. However, DIRECTV always offers some extra features. It is up to you to decide if the extra features are worth the extra cost.

Satellite Television Channels and Extra Features
However, DIRECTV has a couple of features that DISH doesn’t have. With the Entertainment Plan, you can watch 4000 On Demand shows and movies at no extra cost. On the other hand, DISH includes a 3 month subscription to the DISH Movie Pack™ program which allows you to stream movies for free.
You also don’t get some channels with DISH that you do get with DIRECTV. DIRECTV channels include Bravo, Animal Planet, BET, and Nick Jr. To get these features with DISH, you have to upgrade to a better DISH package like the America’s Top 200™ or America’s Top 250™ plans.
DISH also includes 3 free months Showtime while DIRECTV offers 3 free months of HBO and Showtime for the Select and Entertainment packages.
