Orby TV offers two packages: Essentials and Extras. Essentials includes 46 specialty channels, of which 20 are in high definition. The Extras package adds 24 standard definition specialty channels to the Essentials package, for a total of 70 channels.

The Orby TV satellite dish includes a television antenna to receive local broadcast television stations (such as ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox), which allows Orby TV to limit the amount of retransmission fees it pays to content distributors.[3][4][5][2] These local channels are unavailable via Orby TV satellite service, and availability varies per region.
