How to pay your DIRECTV bill
It's easy to pay your DIRECTV bill, but how you do it depends on how you have your billing setup. Do you get one bill with both your DIRECTV and CenturyLink services on it, or do you get two bills -- one from DIRECTV for your television service and one from CenturyLink?
One bill instead of two
If you're a CenturyLink customer and have DIRECTV service, you may have your account setup so that you receive one bill instead of two. If this is the case, the charges for your DIRECTV service appear on your CenturyLink bill (example 1, example 2). You pay for both services at the same time and CenturyLink policies govern when and how you pay your bill.

Separate bill for DIRECTV service
If you get a bill from DIRECTV for your television service, you need to contact DIRECTV with your billing questions because they manage your billing, and their policies govern when and how you pay.

Note: If you're a CenturyLink customer and have DIRECTV service, you probably qualify for joint billing. You may even be eligible for joint billing if you didn't purchase DIRECTV service through us, and if you have the XTRA™, ULTIMATE, PREMIER™, MAS ULTRA™ or LO MAXIMO™ package, you may qualify for a bundle discount.
