DIRECTV announces price increases

You knew they were coming. Pay-TV prices go up every year and DIRECTV is no exception. Of course, every round of increases is met with cries of “that’s it – I’m going to Netflix” or whatever. I’m not saying cord-cutting is unimportant, and in fact at Solid Signal we think it’s an incredibly important trend. I just think that when you talk about real value, the number of channels you get and the online content that is opened to you just because you’re a DIRECTV subscriber — DIRECTV satellite service is still a great value.

But enough of that, let’s get to the nitty gritty. I got this information straight from DIRECTV’s page, and it’s accurate as of December 6, 2017. As far as what “Regional Sports Tier” you’re in, you can find that information on your DIRECTV bill or by calling us at 877.312.4547.


DIRECTV and DIRECTV Español package monthly price changes

Due to higher costs of programming, the monthly rate for the below services will increase on January 21, 2018, and the changes will appear in billing statements starting on that date.

If you are on a current DIRECTV® promotion, your discount will continue until it ends or expires. Once your promotional period ends, you will be charged at our new programming package prices.

Note: If you change your current base package, you may no longer be eligible for the promotional offer on your programming package.
