How long is a DIRECTV contract?

DIRECTV significantly discounts the price of equipment and installation, so we ask you to agree to a programming commitment of 12-24 months effective when you accept and activate service. If you cancel your service or do not maintain the minimum programming requirements DIRECTV reserves the right to charge an early cancellation fee. For more information about the terms and conditions of your DIRECTV service, please read the complete Customer Agreement.
