They are both private services. DirecTV is a satellite TV company. Unlike cable companies, which use coaxial cable wires to transfer the audio and visual signals, DirectTV uses satellites (but unlike other satellite TV, using DirecTV means accessing a private signal).

DirecTV is a new competitor to your local cable company. To decide which is better for you, you need to think about what you need and compare their packages and prices.



Here is a website you can reference in regards to comparing the two. http://www.dishtvreviews.com/. It also goes over the differences between two major satellite providers.
