AT&T DirecTV Channel Lineup and Directory in 2022

Over four packages of channels, AT&T offers users a lot of content with DirecTV. Not only can users select which of those four they like, but they can add extra channels for a further cost.

To find out what’s on offer, I did some homework. As a result of that, I’ve put together a guide to all the DirecTV channels. 

We’re going to be covering the following subjects today:

How to Stay Up to Date With DirecTV

AT&T doesn’t change its channel lineup very much, so by the time you come to read this article, it should be pretty up to date. However, there are switches from time to time, so check out our tips on how to find out what’s available when you need it. 

If you’re already a DirecTV customer, you can check out the channels any time by going into the menu. For DirecTV Stream, you simply go to the home screen then press the “guide” button.

For satellite users, there is a guide button on the remote control that will have been sent out to you. Just press that and start to scroll.

If you’re still thinking about subscribing to DirecTV, you can check out the current line up for DirecTV Stream here and for the satellite service here. This is updated every time a channel is added or removed. 

DirecTV Packages

You can choose from one of four packages to start your DirecTV experience. Each of these has a different variety of channels, and you get more of them as you go through. Of course, the price goes up as this happens as well. 

Here’s a quick look at the packages.

DirecTV Channel Lineup

We’re about to look through all the channels that can be found on each package of DirecTV [1]. These are the channels for DirecTV Stream, as the satellite service is a little different. It has a lot of local channels that vary from area to area. 

Before we break down each of the packages further, let’s take a quick look at a full list of the channels alongside which package hosts them.

Bolt-On Channels for DirecTV

If you like the look of one of those lineups but you feel like it’s missing something, don’t worry. There are a few extra channels you can add on for an additional fee. 

Of course, some of these will not apply to the top package, Premier. That’s because Premier already has some of these channels. So, it’s a good idea to bear that in mind when you’re deciding how much you want to spend and which package to start with. 

Here’s a list of the additional channels you can add on.

ChannelPrice per month
HBO Max$14.99
SHOWTIME$10.99
Cinemax$10.99
STARZ$10.99
EPIX$5.99
AMC+$6.99
Hallmark Movies Now$5.99

A&E Crime Central$4.99
ALLBLK$4.99
Fox Nation$5.99
HISTORY Vault$4.99
Pantaya$5.99
UP Faith & Family$5.99
Revry$6.99
DOGTV$4.99

In addition, you can choose to bolt on the Movies Extra Pack. It contains some great channels for just $4.99 per month [2]. They are:

  • Hallmark Drama (Ch. 564)
  • Hallmark Movies & Mysteries (Ch. 565)
  • HDNet Movies (Ch. 566)
  • MGM HD (Ch. 567)
  • Sony Movies (Ch. 568)
  • Smithsonian Channel (C. 570)
  • Crime + Investigation (Ch. 571)
  • MTV Live (Ch. 572)
  • ShortsTV (Ch. 573)

DirecTV HD and 4K

If you have a smart TV, you might be able to enjoy some of the DirecTV channels in the most premium of quality. A lot of the content on the service is available in either HD or 4K [3], bringing the picture quality to life. 

More and more channels are being rolled out in higher definition, but you might need to call to upgrade. If you can’t see any 4K channels on your home service, give the number +1 844 539 6677 a call. 

DirecTV Regional Sports Networks

If you choose DirecTV Choice, Premier or Ultimate, you’ll also get some regional sports networks depending on your ZIP code. These are not available for the entry level package, Entertainment.

These networks could include any of the following:

Altitude SportsAT&T SportsNet PittsburghAT&T SportsNet Rocky Mntn
