What DIRECTV Equipment Do You Need?

In addition to your TV, your satellite TV service requires three pieces of DIRECTV equipment. All of these come with your package, and in some cases, you’ll be able to pick out what type of equipment you want.


How Does DIRECTV Equipment Work?

Your entertainment is delivered from the DIRECTV’s satellite in the sky to your satellite dish to your receiver to your TV. Without all of these parts, you wouldn’t be able to enjoy DIRECTV service. Check out some details about these pieces of hardware and how they make watching TV possible.


DIRECTV Receivers:

DIRECTV offers a few types of receivers so you can find one that does exactly what you need. Your options range from standard receivers to HD receivers to DVRs to super advanced HD DVRs. Want to record shows and movies? Choose a DVR receiver. Want to watch on multiple TVs at once to keep your family happy? Order a Genie HD DVR and Genie Minis for your additional TVs to watch television throughout the house.

Learn more about the different types of receivers, including the advanced Genie HD DVR, and order the DIRECTV equipment that best suits your entertainment preferences!


DIRECTV Remotes:

Your DIRECTV remote is your doorway to top entertainment. You’ll use your DIRECTV remote to control your TV, order movies and more. Choose a standard remote or a more advanced remote.


DIRECTV Satellite dish:

Your satellite dish needs to be mounted with a clear view of the southern sky for optimal satellite signal. When the dish receives signals from the satellite, it then transmits them to your receiver which displays the entertainment on your TV.
