How to Get All the DirecTV Channels

DirecTV is a satellite alternative to cable television. It offers more options than the typical cable service, though with one drawback -- the service is vulnerable to interruption in heavy weather. DirecTV offers hundreds of channels, with many different entertainment packages and tiers of service. For those who want all the DirecTV channels possible, they will need to select the top-tier package, as well as several add-ons.

Things You'll Need

  • DirecTV satellite service

Instructions

    • 1

      Go to the DirecTV website at www.directv.com and log in to your account.

    • 2

      View your current DirecTV package and click "Upgrade." This will bring up all the available packages.

    • 3

      Select the "265+ Digital Channels" package. This is the largest overall package available through DirecTV. This package will include all premium movie channels and sports channels.

    • 4

      Select "Premium," and this will bring up all of the other premium packages available. These include "BabyFirstTV," "Game Lounge" (which allows you to play games over your DirecTV service) and "Adult Entertainment." If you want every available channel, select all of these packages to add to your service. You can also add international packages. You will need to add every international package one at a time (to receive all possible DirecTV channels). For high-definition channels, you will need to add HD access, too. This will add all of the available HD channels for all packages.

      Click "Submit Changes" once you have finished making your selections. You will then be asked to confirm your changes. If your satellite dish needs to be realigned (for international services), you will be informed of this and asked to select a time and date for a technician to come out to your location and adjust the dish. Confirm this, and your new channels should be unlocked on your dish momentarily.
