DirecTV Without the Dish
You can now experience DirecTV without a dish or long-term commitment. With DirecTV Now, you get to choose from four different packages ranging in price from $35 to $70 per month. HBO and Cinemax are $5 per month for each.
The Guide. Find your favorite shows using DirecTV Now's Guide. You can use this feature to see what's playing now and in the coming hours or days.
What's On Now? Would you rather use images to find your favorite shows? Use the What's On Now? tool, which is available on the main DirecTV Now page.
Find Your Movies. Like DirecTV itself, DirecTV Now is a great place to find films. Uses the Movies feature to find a great title to match your current mood.
Home sweet home. On the main home screen, subscribers can see what's on now, continue watching specific shows, view a watchlist, and much more.
Suggested content. While the lack of some local channels is an issue, the service does offer a great amount of on-demand programming from the major networks. If you're looking for something to watch, there are a number of different suggested content along with a search feature.
A guided tour. If you're looking for a more traditional view of what's on TV, there's a great guide section. The channels are shown alphabetically, and you can see what's on now or in the future. You can also select specific channels to appear on a guide of favorites.
What is it about?
Like Sling TV before it, DirecTV Now offers live and on-demand programming from your favorite channels. Available for tvOS, iPhone, and iPad, the service doesn't require a long-term commitment. Sign up and cancel at any time.
