FAQs

Can I get Internet when I order DIRECTV?

Yes, as a matter of fact, you can get Internet with DIRECTV television service. You can also get phone service, as well, when you choose to bundle other services with DIRECTV. Like many other television service providers, DIRECTV gives customers the choice to bundle. However, unlike some other providers, DIRECTV teams up with the best to give customers more of what they want.

Does DIRECTV provide the Internet service?

No, DIRECTV does not provide the actual Internet or phone service. DIRECTV partners with industry leaders to provide customers the very best in terms of phone and Internet through the option to bundle. Partners like Verizon and Windstream are just some of the names of partners that work with DIRECTV to give customers more for their money.

Is it more expensive to order Internet with DIRECTV?

While it’s true that the price can vary when tacking on Internet to DIRECTV, you’ll want to call for more information. More often than not, the value of combining these two services actually comes out cheaper than having two separate service providers for television and Internet. You could actually save money by ordering Internet with DIRECTV instead of doing it separate.

Bundling can also be more convenient in the long run. Having multiple service providers to cover TV, phone and Internet can be a real hassle. That’s three separate bills you have to keep track of and three separate checks you’re sending in the mail when it comes time to pay up. By bundling with DIRECTV, all of these services are consolidated into one simple bill. And, as stated earlier, you could actually save more money by bundling as opposed to subscribing to multiple services.

That means more money in the bank and greater peace of mind for you and your loved ones.

Do I really need Internet with DIRECTV?

That’s entirely up to you. As stated earlier, bundling the two services can save you some money, but additional Internet service could actually enhance your television viewing experience. Ever heard of the second screen experience? Lots of people are keeping their mobile devices handy when they watch programs like The Walking Dead or Hell on Wheels because of the added interactivity during the commercial breaks.

A reliable Internet service also allows you to take advantage of some of the more web-driven aspects of DIRECTV. Free apps allow you to interface with your DVR, organizing recording schedules and even streaming recorded shows stored on your device.

You don’t necessarily need to bundle Internet with DIRETV. However, DIRECTV provides Internet service through some of the biggest and most reliable names in the Internet service industry. You know you’re getting your money’s worth when you bundle.

How do I bundle Internet with DIRECTV?

If you’re already an existing DIRECTV customer, it shouldn’t be much of a hassle to tack on Internet or even phone, if you so choose. If you’re a new customer, ask a customer service representative about available bundle offers when you call.
