What are the differences between U-verse TV and DIRECTV?


What are the differences between U-verse TV and DIRECTV?

I’ve used DIRECTV for couple of years, but my neighbor says that U-verse TV is better. What are the differences between them? How about their picture quality, sound quality and other features? Can anyone tell me their pros and cons respectively?


U-verse TV is a 100% digital television service using advanced fiber optic and IPTV technology, delivered over the Internet connection. It provides 8 level packages whose main difference lies in the numbers of channels. For example, U-basic only has local channels while U450 Latino has up to 480 channels including 150 HD channels and 55 Spanish language channels. Most U-verse TV plans contains a Total Home DVR which allows you to record up to 4 programs at the same time, and store up to 233 hours SD content, 65 hours HD content, or any combination of the two. U-verse TV is now available at many areas of the United States. You can check availability first.

DIRECTV provides television and audio services via satellite transmissions. It offers three plans which are CHOICE, XTRA and ULTIMATE. All of them have premium movie channels and HD DVR capabilities. Most areas in the United States are allowed to install DIRECTV.

Both of the two TV services offer a DVR. However, U-verse DVR is better than DIRECTV’s for it is capable of recording 4 shows at the same time and is free for most packages, while DIRECTV DVR charges an extra fee for all plans.
