Looking For Satellite TV?

Written by Gary Gresham

It was 1994 and I had moved into another home and learned thatrepparttar cable TV line had not been installed to my house. Whenrepparttar 124134 cable company told me they would have to dig up my yard to putrepparttar 124135 line in I wasn't pleased withrepparttar 124136 idea orrepparttar 124137 price they quoted me to do it.

Satellite TV was still in its infancy stage withrepparttar 124138 big monster dishes. While I was browsing in a local electronics store one day I saw a guy giving a demonstration aboutrepparttar 124139 new DIRECTVŠ 18 inch digital satellite TV dish.

Needless to say I was very impressed and purchasedrepparttar 124140 satellite TV system onrepparttar 124141 spot. I knew it would save me from digging up my yard and I could actually get more channels than I got with cable.

Afterrepparttar 124142 tech guy hooked it up and left I was like a kid with a new toy. I couldn't believe how it transformedrepparttar 124143 picture and sound quality on my television. It was like a completely different TV.

DIRECTVŠ channels are 100% digital-quality picture and sound, including local network channels. If you haven't experienced quality like that before you are in for a real treat.

Cable TV tries to compete with digital satellite TV technology by offering digital cable. But if you compare bothrepparttar 124144 picture and sound quality,repparttar 124145 DIRECTVŠ super clear picture and crystal clear sound wins hands down any day.

But that was onlyrepparttar 124146 beginning ofrepparttar 124147 many things I discovered. I didn't need a TV guide anymore becauserepparttar 124148 on screen programming guide tells me what shows are on, who's starring inrepparttar 124149 show and what it's about.

I have an incredible variety of over 200 channels of every kind of programming I could think of and some I never dreamed of.

Then, I checked outrepparttar 124150 pay per view movie service with up to 55 different choices of movies and special events a day that I could easily order with my remote.

Does anyone like sports? What are you kidding? DIRECTV offers sports packages that will put a smile on any sports fans face. How about NFL Sunday Ticket, NBA League Pass, MLB Extra Innings, NHL Center Ice, ESPN Game Plan and ESPN Full Court. That doesn't even includerepparttar 124151 regional sports networks I now have access to.

If you are a music lover, DIRECTVŠ offers 31 different audio-only channels that range from choices like Soft Rock, Jazz and Country to Hit List, Easy Listening and a lot more.

Note: You're probably wondering how I got started on this "Orwellian Music Theme". Well, it began very easily... I was watching a commercial, for Nike maybe. There were these old folks dancing "polka style" to hip-hop music. Later, some break dancers were wearing cowboy hats and jammin' to a banjo.

Cute. Entertaining.

Until Tim McGraw hitrepparttar hip-hop scene. Mustard hitrepparttar 124133 windshield.

This ain't no joke > it's happening. On withrepparttar 124134 story. ----------- (Quote) A music dies when it becomes a parody of itself, which has happened to some extent with rock... ---Chet Atkins, Dec. 15, 1974 People Magazine
