The biggest difference between DIRECTV and AT&T TV is the method of delivery. DIRECTV is quality satellite television, and AT&T TV is high-quality cable. Both offer hundreds of popular channels and channel packages, so which one you prefer depends on what you like to watch. Are you a gridiron football fanatic? DIRECTV offers NFL Sunday Ticket, which allows you to follow all the scores and watch up to 8 games at once. Do you want a wide variety of news, movies, kids’ channels and more? AT&T TV has a wide variety so the whole family has something to watch. And since you can stream your shows anywhere with either service and an Internet connection, the only difference is how you want to watch!
