DirecTV Now

Deciding on the right streaming app for you can be a daunting task (trust me, I know). Finding out which channels are on what service for what price — it's a lot of math. We can help clear up some of the confusion for DirecTV Now with a quick breakdown of all the available plans and prices.

DTV Now has given the plans cute little names, and a decent range of price points, from $35 a month on the low end to double that on the high end. Plus optional add-ons from HBO, Cinemax, Showtime and STARZ.

Yeah. There's a lot to soak in here.

Here's what the DirecTV Now plans look like. (All prices listed are monthly.)

Update August 30 2018: We've updated the listings — AccuWeather has replaced WeatherNation.

  • Live a Little ($40): The Live a Little plan is the bare-bones starter plan for DirecTV Now. You'll get 60-plus channels (including live local channels in select markets) but no access to any Regional Sports Networks. You'll get a chunk of the standard fare that includes AMC, Bravo, CMT, CNBC, CNN, Comedy Central, Discovery, E!, Food Network, Fox, HGTV, MTV and Spike.
  • Just Right ($55): A quick $15 jump and you'll get access to an extra 20-plus channels (for more than 80 total) including live local channels (where available) and certain Regional Sports Networks. Just Right throws in channels like BTN, Cooking Channel, ESPNEWS, GSN, IFC, MLB Network and more.
  • Go Big ($65): If more channels are your thing, then Go Big is where it's at. Along with everything the two previous plans offer (including local channels and RSNs) you'll add in Centric, Destination America, Discovery Life, FX Movie Channel, Logo, MTV Classic, NHL Network, Sprout and others.
  • Gotta Have It ($70): The top-tier plan on DirecTV Now gives you over 120 channels that are really more than anyone needs in their streaming life. If you've just Gotta Have It, here it is. Local channels, RSNs, Boomerang, Chiller, STARZ and more. You'll get it all for your streaming pleasure for $70/month.
  • Todo y Más ($45): This is DirecTV Now's Spanish-language plan, with more than 50 Spanish channels added to some 40 English channels.
