When I moved into my new home, I didn’t think I would need to get a subscription with a cable or TV satellite provider. With technology growing by leaps and bounds seemingly every day, I figured I would just watch what I wanted on my laptop. It’s not like I have a big screen TV not being used! However, it was not all I thought it would be. I went online and looked at the local cable company’s offers, then I looked at the Directv channel guide to see if I would be able to get the channels I wanted on both of them.
I was mostly missing my local channels, because I was not able to watch the news program in the mornings and evenings without this. I thought that I was going to have to go with cable until I found out that satellite companies offer local channels as well. I really didn’t care which one I got at first, but my opinion on that changed as I started to compare the two providers. The channels were very similar, which was the main thing I wanted to find out first.
The similarities ended there though. The cable company was offering a promotion, but it was just ten dollars off my bill for the first six months. Direct TV was offering so much than that, both in savings and other bonuses as well. I am not really a huge movie watcher, but I do like watching some of them when the mood strikes. With Direct TV, I was offered all of the premium movie channels for three months, and I was even able to record quite a few of them on the DVR receiver that they gave me. Direct TV is superior to cable in every way, and that is why I went with them.
