HughesNet does offer tv plans, but HughesNet does not have its own tv service. HughesNet offers its own internet and phone service, but it bundles its internet with DISH or DIRECTV and you will need to subscribe to each individually. Just like HughesNet and Viasat need a satellite dish to get a signal for an internet connection DISH and DIRECTV need their own dish to get their own signal for tv. The service with DISH will start at $59 a month and go up to $94.99 with a free standard installation of a satellite dish while the service with DIRECTV will start at $64.99 a month and go up to $134.99 with a free standard installation of a satellite dish. DISH has a couple different plans that offer 120 channels to around 290 channels. DIRECTV has a couple different plans as well that offer 160 channels to around 330 channels. There isn’t a large difference between the two since they both have a large coverage. The installation consists of mounting the dish, installing the receivers, programming the remotes and updating the receiver and DVR software. All of this is free so you don’t have to worry about doing it yourself. Both are good services to go with so you won’t lose anything by choosing one over the other.
