Add Premium Cable Channels to Practically Any Cable TV Package!
Bored with basic cable? Add the nation's most popular premium cable channels when you choose pretty much any local or national TV provider. While some premium cable channels are exclusive to select provider (for example, DIRECTV is the exclusive home to NFL SUNDAY TICKET, a premium sports package), you can add premium movie channels like HBO® and SHOWTIME® to your package with almost any established cable TV provider.
Get the Most Out of Your Premium Cable Channels
The names remain the same, but the number of channels you get with any premium cable packages will vary depending on your TV provider. For example, when you check into a hotel with local cable, you might get one or two HBO® channels. but when you add HBO® to a major satellite or cable TV package, you get up to 8 different HBO® channels, spanning time zones from East to West.
Plus, more sophisticated satellite and cable TV providers will offer premium cable channels "On-Demand," so you can watch select premium cable programming on your own schedule at the click of a button. Compare TV Providers in your area for a more complete look at full premium cable offerings where you live.
