Well DIRECTV has the Family package and it’s a very skinny bundle with local channels as well as a couple regular pay channels. It’s a good match for someone who isn’t too much for cable and wants a skinny bundle of channels. You can call DIRECTV at +1 (800) 531-5000 for more information on the Family Package and how you can switch. Going to the website will not allow you to switch to it since it’s technically a DISCONTINUED package that only existing customers with that package already from the beginning can continue to enjoy.

DirecTV does not have "low income cable". This is because pay TV is luxury entertainment, not a necessity for life. Plus they are TV by satellite, so any programs out there for cable wouldn't apply to them.

If you are a new customer, then you go onto the website and compare the intro specials. Remember that is a discounted price for the first year, so read the fine print an order confirmation.

However if you are an existing customer, there are packages not listed with the intro specials. From lowest to highest in terms of cost: Family, Select, Entertainment, Choice, Xtra (or Preferred Xtra for those who watch little to no sports, if still available), Ultimate, Premier.
