I want to watch a program online, but I get a message telling me I need to upgrade my TV package or receiver. What does this mean?


You chose a program that's on a channel not included in your current TV package. You'll need to upgrade your programming, and sometimes a receiver upgrade is also required. Just follow the on-screen instructions to upgrade. If you just need to upgrade your programming, your new channels will be available within minutes after you upgrade. To view the channel lineup for every DIRECTV TV package, click the "Print Channel Lineup" link on this page.
