Direct TV Offers Foreign Language Programming Package

By: Julia Hall

Everybody knows that Direct TV does a great job of providing plenty of programming options- it does offer eight hundred and fifty total channels after all - but you may not be as familiar with Direct TV's ability to provide programming in languages other than English.

Television programming in other languages can go a long way toward making people who come from countries that speak those languages feel at home in our culture. Directv does a great job of providing foreign language programming with its selection of six separate foreign language packages. You can actually choose between two Filipino packages that both give you a selection of sports, regional programming, talk shows, movies, and news to name only a few of the topics that you can choose among.

For Vietnamese language programming Direct TV offers VietnameseDirect which features programming from the Saigon Broadcasting Television Network. In addition to Vietnamese, Direct TV also has six separate services that offer a variety of South Asian languages. You can also subscribe to a separate Chinese language service that provides programming from Hong Kong and Taiwan, as well as mainland China. If you happen to speak Russian, Direct TV's RussianDirect can bring you a great variety of sports and movies along with other programming. You can also subscribe to Sky TG24 which broadcasts news in Italian with live coverage every thirty minutes.

Of course, if you live in the United States and speak a language other than English, there's a good chance that the language in question is Spanish. Because there are more people who speak Spanish than any other language in the United States besides English, you can get a greater selection of Spanish language programming package than any other language besides English.

Direct TV recognizes that many people who speak Spanish in the United States probably also speak English and are trying to improve their English. For that reason all of the Spanish language packages have a mixture of both Spanish and English language channels. The introductory level bilingual programming package is Seleccion Extra. Seleccion Extra has thirty five Spanish language channels which include TV Chile, Sur Peru, ONCE TV, Caracol TV Internacional, and Cine Latino. Seleccion Extra also has more than twenty five channels in English. Seleccion Mas builds on the offerings of Seleccion extra by adding more Spanish language channels like Mexico 22, Galavision, Gol TV, and Galavision along with even more channels in English. Seleccion Ultra adds over one hundred and thirty more channels onto what's already offered in Seleccion Mas to bring the total to over one hundred and seventy total channels. Seleccion Premier adds thirty two movie channels, including HBO Latino, and Direct TV's Sports Pack onto Seleccion Ultra. This creates a total of over two hundred and thirty channels, making Seleccion Ultra the largest Spanish language programming package currently offered.

Of course Direct TV also offers plenty of features to maximize your enjoyment of non English language programming too. For example, all subscriptions come with interactive features like the on screen program guide which allow you to determine what you want to watch by reading descriptions of all the programs available to you and then going directly to the channel that features that program. The on screen program guide can allow you to decide what to watch much more quickly and efficiently than channel surfing. No matter what language you speak, there are lots of reasons to go with Direct TV for all of your television programming needs. Switch to the best.
