Why choose the CHOICE package?

There’s a lot to like about the CHOICE package, especially if you’re a sports fan, but it isn’t for everyone. Get our take on the CHOICE package to help you decide if it’s the right TV package for your home.

What we like

  • Great channel selection – The CHOICE package comes with something for everybody across 185+ channels
  • Regional sports networks – This is the lowest DIRECTV package to include regional sports networks to watch your local MLB, NBA and NHL teams
  • NFL SUNDAY TICKET – The first season of NFL SUNDAY TICKET is included at no extra cost when you order the CHOICE package or above

Things to consider

  • Added fees – The regional sports channels included with the CHOICE package come with a regional sports fee, which could add another $10-$15/mo. to your bill.
  • Price increase after 12 mos. – At $69.99/mo., the CHOICE package is initially a great value, but after the first year that price jumps to $115/mo.*
