WHO IT WORKS BEST FOR

The PREMIER package is great for those with a big budget and are willing to spend. For the price, you get all of DIRECTV's channels, including the premium networks and plenty of specialty sports channels and regional sports networks.

For hardcore sports fans, you get to enjoy specialty sports channels such as the Outdoor Channel, which features hunting, fishing, and off-road motorsports, as well as beIN Sports, which feature the Spanish football leagues (such as La Liga, Serie A, and Ligue 1). There's also NBC sports, which feature NASCAR, the IndyCar Series, and the Ironman Triathlon.

They've also got regional sports channels such as AT&T SportsNet (aka Root Sports) and Fox Sports. You might be able to catch out-of-market games for your favorite sports teams (or at least their highlights) on these channels. If that's not enough, there's still the NFL Sunday Ticket, which is more than enough to keep you occupied with out-of-market football games.

If sports aren't your thing, there's still plenty of other general entertainment channels. The Hallmark Movies & Mysteries channel features original Hallmark movies and drama, while the Flix channel features classic films from the 1950s to present day. Also, don't forget the premium networks included in the subscription - those will have thousands of hours of content to keep you entertained throughout the year.

In short, DIRECTV's PREMIER package is for people who like to channel surf and don't care about the price. It's a bonus if you love watching a variety of sports too. However, even if you don't, there's plenty of other channels to pick from. Choose this if you must have all of the channels - and don't want to miss out on anything.
