I have been looking for a place to get an accurate channel lineup, so far none exist.

I have even logged in to my directv account and printed my channel lineup,......... ya its wrong........it doesnt list Fox Sports North or the movies channels i currently have.

I also have many customers that cant read the very tiny lineup that comes in the Directv welcome pack. Thats so small I even need my glasses to see it.....

I need a handicap lineup with the correct channels, anywhere to find this? Seems odd that directv has to hide this information.

I need a lineup WITH the channel numbers larger enough for anyone to read without glasses

I've had good luck with them - have personalize your listing first.

I've been using TitanTV for years. It's a PITA to set up all your favorites, but once that's done it's a great resource. Their mobile site is also very good. If only they could tie the mobile site in with DirecTV so we could use it to set recordings with our phones. I have the DirecTV Android app, but it's a pain to navigate, not especially intuitive.

hmm....while titan is a rather nice online guide with show listings

I'm really looking for a printable channel lineup someone can actually read, just channel and its number for a given area.

The other list is absurd and includes every channel across the country

Thanks for the link Satelliteracer. very helpful for my in-laws when they come into town.

My biggest gripe is about the DirecTV interactive package comparison list. It is that you can't easily see the differences (without scrolling down and noting each channel) between packages. I really want to know what different channels I get in Choice Ultimate that I don't get in Choice Extra, or for that matter compared to Choice, or even further what Ultimate doesn't get that Premier has.

Even if you could sort the list differently, maybe by channel number, or have the differences listed at the top and the similarities listed below.

It is nice that SR gave us a version you can display in your browser. Although you can go to the DIRECTV website and print a copy of any of the packages from there [link]. Or you can print your current package from your account overview page.

ah....i see its basically the same list just correct

The current package from my account overview page was ALMOST like this without the regional sports channels......weird!!

they should fix that

Its rather odd they you have to pretend to be a new customer and "compare" packages and pricing in order to see the correct list!

Now the only thing is this page prints out really small and some people still cant read it........

the tv app compare is the lineup ive been handing out for years, just didnt see where to print it from, the one off my account brought up the wrong list.

your on-screen guide will be most accurate.

Two problems:

1. It isn't accurate
2. You can't print it or refer prospective customers to it

What I'd like to see is a list like this:



Here's a list of all the channels in Entertainment:

1.)
2.)
3.)


Here's a list of all the channels in Choice that are not included in Entertainment:

1.)
2.)
3.)


Here's a list of all the channels in Choice Xtra that are not included in Entertainment or Choice:

1.)
2.)
3.)



Does anybody know of anything like that. The D* web site makes it so difficult to compare the packages with its interface.

I want to know EXACTLY and SIMPLY what I would be getting by upgrading to successive tiers. For example, when I look at the Choice Xtra list, I want to be able to clearly see what I would be getting for the extra $5.

Hey, thanks. You'd think that there would be some maintained and easy-to-read list available to everybody, so that you didn't have to do it manually.

You GAIN 17 channels with the Choice package

357 CNBC World
2068 GEM NET


The D* site says both of those are in Entertainment.

It was pretty much just copy paste from the internal DirecTV support software. I would assume this information is correct, but keep in mind it is still programmed by humans.
