What types of TV services are available near me?

Although cable TV service is still the most popular connection type, your address may be eligible for fiber or satellite TV plans depending on where you’re located. Residents in rural areas, for example, can shop satellite TV providers which offer service in places that other providers do not. Take a look at some of the pros and cons of the TV connection types that may be available in your area.


AT&T TV is a new TV service that combines the convenience and savings of streaming with the channel variety, picture quality and DVR benefits of traditional television service. Initially offered only in select markets, AT&T TV is now available everywhere.


  • Availability – AT&T TV is available throughout the U.S.
  • Package options – Choose from four main TV packages ranging from 75+ to 140+ channels, including your local networks. A Spanish package is also available with 95+ channels.
  • On-demand titles – AT&T TV packages come with thousands of on-demand titles you can watch at home or on the go with the AT&T TV app.
  • Innovative equipment – AT&T TV features an exclusive new streaming box that offers direct access to 5,000+ apps, supports 4K resolution and lets you record an unlimited number of shows at once.


  • Broadband connection required – AT&T recommends download speeds of 25 Mbps or higher for service, especially if you plan to stream in HD or 4K resolution.
  • Major sports packs not available – Add-on sports packages such as NFL SUNDAY TICKET, MLB Extra Innings and NBA League Pass are not currently available for order with AT&T TV.

Cable TV services

Many people use “cable” in reference to TV services in general, but cable TV is a specific type of TV service that uses coaxial cables. Since coaxial cable networks are nearly as commonplace as phone lines, cable TV is readily available in many areas.


  • Availability – Cable TV is available to roughly 89% of U.S. residents.
  • Convenient bundling – Most cable TV companies also offer internet, home phone and home security services.
  • Reliability – Cable TV is less susceptible to service interruptions due to inclement weather.


  • Cost – Standalone TV packages may be higher priced than satellite TV packages with similar channel lineups.
  • Specialty channel options – Compared to satellite TV, cable often will not have as many regional sports networks, international channels or other add-on options.

Satellite TV services

Satellite TV service is one of the most popular and readily-available alternatives to cable TV. Satellite TV is available throughout all 50 states, but you will need a clear view of the southern sky and a place to mount a satellite dish to receive service.


  • Availability – Satellite TV is available nearly everywhere, making it an excellent TV option in suburban and rural areas.
  • Package options – Satellite TV gives you numerous base package options and lots of add-ons for premium channels, sports and more.
  • Picture quality – Satellite TV technology supports higher bandwidth than cable, which means you’re likely to get more HD and 4K programming with satellite TV.


  • Signal interference – Inclement weather, snow and heavy cloud cover can result in signal loss.
  • Contract obligations – Satellite TV is likely to come with a two-year service agreement, a longer commitment than most cable or fiber-optic TV providers require.

Fiber-optic TV services

Fiber-optic TV service is becoming more popular as fiber-optic networks become more available. Currently, fiber-optic TV is primarily available in metro areas and less than a third of U.S. residents are eligible for service.


  • Package options – Like satellite TV, fiber-optic TV has a high bandwidth that will support many channels and high picture quality.
  • Bundle options – If fiber-optic TV is available, it’s likely that you’ll be able to bundle with fiber-optic internet service, an emerging internet connection type.
  • Reliability – Fiber-optic cables are more durable and resistant to interference than coaxial cables, giving fiber-optic TV superb reliability.


  • Availability – Fiber-optic TV is currently one of the least-available types of TV service.
  • Cost – Standalone fiber-optic TV package may cost more than satellite or cable TV options. Plus, you may have to bundle with internet to qualify for certain TV packages or pricing.

Over-the-top streaming TV services

A cheap alternative to cable TV is to simply purchase a fast internet connection and stream your favorite shows. Here are a few TV streaming options that you might find to be good substitutes or complements to traditional TV service.


AT&T TV NOW (formerly DIRECTV NOW) is a subscription over-the-top service that lets you watch live TV and On Demand programming. It’s a cost-effective way to “cut the cord” and still get many of the live channels you get with regular TV service. DVR service is now available with DIRECTV NOW and offers up to 20 hours of cloud storage for shows.

Netflix, Hulu & Amazon Prime

Popular streaming services like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime feature movies, hit series and original shows. For the most part, these services feature On Demand streaming, which makes them a great supplement to TV service, but not the best substitute for live programming.

Roku and other devices

There are many devices, such as the Roku, that let you stream TV from a variety of sources. However, like Netflix and Hulu, available content is limited. Such devices are ideal for viewers who just watch a few TV series and On Demand movies.

Frequently asked questions about TV companies

What’s the difference between satellite and cable TV?

Cable service providers use a coaxial cable connection and a cable box, while satellite TV providers use a satellite dish to send the TV signal. With a satellite dish installed, satellite TV is available to most homes nationwide. Cable, on the other hand, is only available to homes connected to a cable network and may not be available in rural areas.

What TV companies are in my area?

Availability for TV companies varies nationwide. Satellite TV companies are the most widely available, followed by cable, fiber-optic and IPTV. Call to hear about available TV service providers and plans in your area.

What is 4K TV?

4K TV, also called “Ultra-HD”, is a picture resolution with 3840 x 2160 pixels, roughly four times the 1920 x 1080 you get with HD resolution. The result is a sharper image, but you need a 4K TV and a service that offers 4K programming to experience it.

Is TV service cheaper if I bundle?

Most TV companies offer discounts to customers who bundle services together. Because of increased competition between internet and TV companies, providers often give a discount for setting up all of your services through them rather than getting internet from one provider and TV from another.
