Hey this is Craig Hanks with, taking a look at DIRECTV.
DIRECTV ranks second in our 2016 TV Service Buyers Guide with an 8 out of 10 rating.

You’ll have plenty to choose from because DIRECTV has six TV packages and over 315 channels.

The Genie DVR, which is included in many packages, records up to 5 shows at once, and can hold 200 hours of HD content.
Diehard football fans will love the NFL Sunday ticket, which lets you watch every game at home or on the go.
On top of that, their customer service was ranked #1 in 2015.

Of course, it’s not perfect. Here are the downsides-
DIRECTV’s required contract includes early termination fees if you cancel before the two-year contract ends
And while their promo pricing looks great, some plans have rates that increase by 150% after the first year.

Benefits like DVR service and additional receivers add to your monthly bill, along with broadcast and regional sports fees.

[Our Recommendation]
These facts aside, DIRECTV is one of the best TV options available.

If you ask us, the Xtra package with NFL SUNDAY TICKET is the way to go. This pack includes the Genie, which is a strong contender for the best DVR of 2016. You’ll be able to record and watch all your favorite shows on your schedule.
