Hughesnet has been a bundle partner of DirecTV. The way that works is that you order the internet provide through DirecTV, which gives you a bundle discount on top of your intro offer.

DirecTV would need to check what internet partners are available for your address, which when checking to see what exact options are available with the listed providers does include a credit check as they are another company.

If you already have Hughesnet, then you cannot get the bundle discount as you already have them so cannot qualify for the additional intro special of course. It is an incentive for choosing to go with one of their partners.

As a side note, make sure to not connect your DirecTV equipment to your Hughesnet. This is because the On Demand initial download and background maintenance would probably eat through your data allowance. Only connect DirecTV to home internet that doesn't have data limits.
