You might know DirecTV best as a satellite service company, but the brand's streaming service is also a leading choice for cord-cutters who want live sports, breaking news and must-see shows without being tied down to a long-term contract.

With all DIRECTV STREAM packages, you get access to unlimited cloud storage for recordings on one account**. Plus, you get the option to add Max, Showtime, Starz, MGM+ and Cinemax for the first three months*†.

*Max, Showtime, Starz, MGM+ and Cinemax are included for 3 months and auto-renew monthly thereafter at then prevailing rates (currently $15.99/mo. for Max, $11.99/mo. for Paramount+ with Showtime, $11/mo. each for Starz and Cinemax and $6/mo. for MGM+), unless canceled. Requires you to select offers. See offer for details.

Whether it be basic news, entertainment or expanded sports coverage, DIRECTV STREAM has you covered. Here's a look at the different packages available.

Three package options, plenty of sports

No. 1: Entertainment package

First, there's the Entertainment package, which gives you a perfect mix of sports, news and entertainment. You get over 75 live channels, including ESPN, CNN, Disney and Nickelodeon for the family, along with 60,000+ on-demand titles and local news stations.

If you just need a basic lineup of channels, but have a football lover in the family, you're in luck: You can tack on Sports Pack, which includes major league networks and a variety of college and high-school games.

No. 2: Choice package

For more variety, the Choice package includes major channels like NFL Network, MLB Network, NBA TV and RSNs. In total, Choice gives you over 105 channels and 70,000 on-demand titles.
