Why choose the SELECT package?

As DIRECTV’s lowest-priced package, the SELECT package is perfect for budget shoppers, but it isn’t for everyone. Here’s our take on what we like about the SELECT package, as well as some reasons why you may want to upgrade to a different DIRECTV package.

What we like

  • Low cost for what you get – With 155+ channels, the SELECT package comes with lots of entertainment options to choose from
  • Lots of on-demand content – In addition to your live channels, you’ll also have thousands of on-demand titles to watch whenever you want
  • HD included – Many of the channels included with the SELECT package are available in HD at no extra cost

Things to consider

  • Lack of sports – ESPN, FOX Sports 1 and your regional sports networks are not included with the SELECT package
  • Price increase after one year – The monthly price raises to $85 after the first year, and DIRECTV requires a two-year contract
  • Upgrading is only $5 more – The ENTERTAINMENT package has many of the same channels, plus ESPN and FOX Sports 1, for only $5/mo. more the first year

What channels are in the SELECT package?

Along with your local channels – including ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC – the DIRECTV SELECT package comes with many popular national networks, family-fun channels, news outlets, digital music and more. Check out our DIRECTV channel guide for a full list of channels included with the SELECT package.

What popular channels are missing?

While the SELECT package offers a decent mix of entertainment for the price, there are some noticeable exclusions that may have you wanting to upgrade to a larger package.

  • ESPN
  • DIY Network
  • FOX Sports 1
  • FX Movie Channel
  • Regional sports networks
  • NBC Sports Network
  • The Weather Channel
  • Travel Channel
  • WGN America

Without the inclusion of ESPN, FOX Sports 1 and regional sports networks, sports programming is the biggest block of entertainment left out of the SELECT package. 

That’s not to say all sports are missing from the SELECT package. You can find many sports broadcasts, including NFL games and MLB playoffs on your local channels and NBA fans can watch plenty of games on TNT.

What else is included with the SELECT package?

There’s a lot of live entertainment to enjoy with the SELECT package, but it also gives you access to On Demand viewing and on-the-go streaming, plus a free trial period of the top premium networks.
