How will DIRECTV bill me for my service?

DIRECTV bills you for a full month of service at the start of your billing cycle. So, for example, if your billing cycle starts on June 15th, DIRECTV will bill from June 15th through July 14th. Your billing cycle date is the first date printed next to “Current Charges for Service Period” on your bill. It is based on the date you activate service and cannot be changed. About four days after activation, you'll receive a bill for your first month of service.


Your first payment is due approximately 20 days after the bill is mailed. Your due date is printed at the top right corner of your bill. The easiest and fastest way to pay your bill is online. See all the other ways your can pay your bill

Pay Per View movies and events are charged to your bill after you order them. These will show up in the Current Charges section of your bill.
