Directv does not offer a Senior Discount.
However there are some new programming options, some of which affect Encore.
The Ultimate package, and of course Premier, have the Encore channels.
The Starz pack ($13.99, if no other premium packs) has included Encore for many years. Updated the branding on the channels to say StarzEncore even.
You can now add the Encore channels by themselves instead of the full Starz pack. As I recall this is $8.99.
If you watch little to no sports they have a new package Preferred Xtra. Slightly cheaper than Xtra in base cost, but is also cheaper because it removes the RSN fee that package Choice and above have. The Xtra Package with Encore added is cheaper than the Ultimate package with the RSN fee. You also get the bonus of Hallmark Movies & Mysteries (565) which used to be only available in the HD Extra Pack. HM&M is also in Select and Entertainment.
You will need to call Directv 1-800-531-5000 to see about adding the Encore pack to your current package, or even changing to Preferred Xtra if you feel that would be a better fit as well. You can change the package and pack at any time. Unlike a full Premium pack (like the full Starz), Encore only does not have the 30 day requirement to keep it. Even ask if you account qualifies for any new discounts (depending on promotion sometimes comes with an agreement to keep Directv for the same length as discount). If any discounts are available great, but I would verify you are comfortable with the base costs as that will be your long term budget.

DirecTV does not have category discounts (senior citizen, military, low income etc.).
Youcan call them to see if you might qualify for a new monthly discount. Any specials are for your account personally. Since specials only last so long, I would do an account review to make sure you have the best fit for what you use. Packages and channels have changed over the years so maybe there is a lower costing option for you now.
I have directtv I have to call back in April can I get a senior discount, also is there a package that includes encore I need to stay at 100 dollars
How can we improve?
