DIRECTV and DISH Premium Movie Comparison

For most, movies tend to make up a good chunk of their TV watching time. Whether it’s documentaries or horror flicks, there’s no shortage of channels or themes on satellite TV… you’re only limited by how much you’re willing to budget. Both DIRECTV and DISH Network offer movies a-la-carte and via discounted packages, so if there’s more than one network that catches your eye, consider bundling to save a few extra dollars per month. With the advent of competitors (NETFLIX, Hulu, etc), prices have gone down over the last few years and expect that trend to continue. Don’t be surprised if they release streaming services to compete with them in the next year or two (update: both providers have now launched their own streaming TV options).

Take advantage of discounts

With both providers, new subscribers quality for any combination of free HBO, Showtime, Cinemax and/or STARZ, for up to 3 months. Check out the promos at the top of the page for the latest. You’ll have at least a couple months to watch your fill of movies, then decide if you want to add them to your plan. Once that time comes, below is a pricing and channel comparison of each of the major movie networks along with the discounted, package rates.
