Frequently asked questions

The primary difference between DIRECTV STREAM and DIRECTV SATELLITE is how TV gets delivered into your home.

With DIRECTV STREAM, you stream content over Wi-Fi or other Internet connection. A strong Internet connection is required. You can purchase the DIRECTV STREAM Device (sold separately, for an additional cost) to watch, or you can use the DIRECTV STREAM app, which is available on a variety of streaming devices, phones, tablets, and more.

With DIRECTV SATELLITE, a professional technician sets up a satellite dish to receive signal, and that relays to an HD DVR box inside your home.

There are more differences between the two services, including channel availability, cost of packages, and more. Compare the two above on this page, or try answering a few questions in our quiz if you need more help.

DIRECTV offers DIRECTV STREAM and DIRECTV SATELLITE to give you the flexibility of choice in your TV service. One product or the other may not be best for everyone. For example, if you live in an apartment building and cannot have a satellite dish installed, you can have the option of DIRECTV STREAM. Or, if you live in an area where you’re unable to get consistent high-speed Internet, you can have the option of DIRECTV SATELLITE. Ultimately, most customers will prefer one service or the other, and you should choose whichever best fits your lifestyle.

Every DIRECTV STREAM and DIRECTV SATELLITE packages includes access to local channels, but local channel availability is based on your billing ZIP code. Visit our DIRECTV STREAM Channel Lineup and our DIRECTV SATELLITE Channel Lineup to get full details – tab over to the “Regional Sports & Local” tab, and type in your ZIP code to see availability in your area.

DIRECTV STREAM and DIRECTV SATELLITE both offer Regional Sports Networks with their CHOICETM Package and above. Both services also offer key national sports networks with all of their packages. You can learn more about sports on DIRECTV by shopping for DIRECTV STREAM or shopping for DIRECTV SATELLITE.
