The number of channels offered by DIRECTV depends upon the service package. As of 2015, DIRECTV offers six packages in English, with the lowest level, Select, offering over 145 channels and the highest level, Premier, offering over 315 channels.
DIRECTV channel listings for each package are viewable on the company's website and include both television and satellite radio channels. DIRECTV sorts channels by grouping into categories such as national channels, premium channels and channels available in Spanish. Each guide notes if there are channels that require a special dish or other equipment. Customers can print channel guides from PDFs provided by the company.
