Re: Can you add channels

You'll have to upgrade to a package that includes those channels.  No way to just add one or two to your Select Plan.

Re: Can you add channels

Channels are arranged by package tiers by the most part, not al-a-carte. Channel owners force TV providers to get the networks in packs, so they in turn have to offer them in similar packages.

 

Here is where you can browse most of the packages Select and above: https://support.directv.com/dtv-programming/360

 

Family package that is below Select, but swaps some channels for others in the "family" genre idea: https://support.directv.com/dtv-programming/3245

 

Preferred Xtra unfortunately still has no listed channel lineup. Similar to Xtra, but swaps many sport channels for others (Chiller, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, Boomerang...)

 

Locals (like CW) are based of if they are in your designated market area (DMA) per Federal regulations and if Directv has permission for that one in the first place: www.directv.com/locals
