DirecTV promotion offers free preview of XTRA package

directv-logo-300pxOn Monday, Aug. 26, DirecTV will start a promotion which gives subscribers a free preview of channels in the XTRA service package, including popular networks such as BIO HD (Ch. 266), DIY (Ch. 230), HUB (Ch. 294 in SD), NatGeo Wild (Ch. 283), NBA TV HD (Ch. 216), NBC Sports Network (Ch. 220), NFL HD (Ch. 212), and Ovation (Ch. 274 in SD). The preview includes approximately 15 high-definition channels you would not receive with lower tier packages.

The free channel preview is a bonus for customers who subscribe to DirecTV’s lower tier ENTERTAINMENT and CHOICE packages. The XTRA package includes over 60 more channels than CHOICE, and over 70 more than ENTERTAINMENT. The EXTRA package is DirecTV’s middle tier TV service that provides over 205 digital channels for $70.99 per month.

Take a look below where we’ve listed all the HD channels included with EXTRA. The rest of the 60 channels included in the preview are broadcast in standard-definition.

The DirecTV EXTRA free channel preview will run for one week, starting Monday, Aug. 26 and ending Sunday, Sept. 1.
