  • Recommendation: DirecTV for strong sport and Dish Network for easy mobility

While bothrepparttar 142156 networks offer you a number of accessories,repparttar 142157 variety available with Dish Network is larger. The key accessories are:

  • IR to UHF converter forrepparttar 142158 remote - That means that even if you have hooked up four TVs as bothrepparttar 142159 networks do free, you could only operaterepparttar 142160 receiver withrepparttar 142161 remote if you were inrepparttar 142162 same room asrepparttar 142163 receiver. The IR to UHF converter makes your remote radio controlled. This means that you can now operate it from any room inrepparttar 142164 house.

Purchase of Equipment

Dish Network insists that you use equipment supplied by them. Sounds autocratic but is OK by me since what you get is perfectly tuned equipment that works well together. DirecTV allows you to mix and match equipment of your choice. The key issue here is that you are responsible for compatibility issues.

Final Recommendation

As I readrepparttar 142171 paragraphs above, my choices become clear. For most general classes of viewers, Dish Network is a better choice - marginally in terms of cost, it also offers better HD TV choices and more accessories. If your main interests lie in sports or you are interested in foreign language programming - look at DirecTV. It offers more choices in these categories. You must be a more educated viewer by now andrepparttar 142172 decision you have to take must be clearer. Here is wishing you hours of satisfying viewing.

Two-Step Your Communication

Written by Robert F. Abbott

Continued from page 1

Some publishers of free electronic newsletters ask subscribers to pass on copies to friends and colleagues. It's a way for publishers to reach potential subscribers, with an implied or explicit endorsement.

Speed of distribution: Some messages can't be sent out in mass, they need to be delivered individually and personally, but still need to go out quickly. The two-step process can do that.

For example, some associations use phoning trees. Simply sending written notices of meetings may not be enough to get a good turnout. So, one person phones three other members, and those members each phone three other members and so on. If everyone cooperates, phone trees are very effective (in my experience, though, 'if' isrepparttar key word here).

Unofficial status: Sometimes, organizations use what politicians call trial balloons, which is to say, they want reaction to an initiative before officially announcing it.

For example, a politician might testrepparttar 141786 feasibility of an idea by leaking it torepparttar 141787 media. If a news story refers to 'unnamed sources,' you may be seeingrepparttar 141788 two-step strategy at work. It allowsrepparttar 141789 politician to get a reading onrepparttar 141790 public's mood without making a commitment.

In summary,repparttar 141791 two-step process refers torepparttar 141792 idea of using third parties to pass on important messages. Conscious, creative use ofrepparttar 141793 process can extend your reach and give your message more impact. That makes it a useful addition to your communication toolbox.
