DIRECTV customers will be able to bundle their video and high-speed Internet services, through new agreements the company has inked with satellite broadband providers ViaSat and Hughes.

DIRECTV will offer  Exede by ViaSat and Hughes’ HughesNet  Gen4 next-generation satellite broadband services, with speeds of over 10 Mbps, to its customers living in mostly unserved, rural areas later this year. The new offering, coupled with already available triple-play bundles with Verizon, AT&T, Century Link and other telco providers, means that any DIRECTV customer in the U.S. will now be able to get bundled pricing.
