For many years I have been very envious of the fact that people who live in big cities can by cable service and watch a large number of channels. I am a really big fan of sports games and national news, and I previously had little chance to partake in either of those things in the rural area I live in. You see, we simply do not have cable available in our area yet. But when a friend recently pointed me to http://www.direct-satellite-tv.com/directv/new-york/ and pointed out that we can get satellite service, I was immediately interested to learn more.

I really feared that satellite service would be extremely expensive, but I learned that it is quite affordable. It looks to be on par with the cost of cable service. I have an HDTV, and I was hoping to learn that I could get HD channels with satellite, and it turns out that is possible.

Because I live in an area not serviced by cable, I have never had a chance to watch any of the major movie channels on my own TV sets. But now, I would have the chance to get the three major movie channels for free for a few months. This was rather exciting indeed! My wife was most excited about that.

Not wanting to waste any time, I quickly called and set up an installation date. An employee showed up on time to do the work and had everything installed within a couple of hours. I actually thought the whole process would take far longer to carry out, but the guy was a real pro. When he was done, he made sure to test the service on each of my TVs and everything worked just fine. After he left, my wife decided to order a pizza and we sat down to enjoy our first night of movies at home together!

I have to get a new television service because I ended my contract with my cable provider. I think it was all of those Rob Lowe commercials that finally convinced me. I’m kidding, but it is something that I have been thinking about for quite awhile, but it took me awhile to make up my mind. Now I am on http://www.cable-tv.com/directv/ to check out some of the deals and special promotions they have going right now, and to see if I can get a good price on a television package that will work well for my family.

My family likes to watch a lot of different shows on a lot of different channes, so it will be important for me to get a package that has a lot of channels. I am thinking something like at least 100 HD channels would be sufficient to keep everyone happy, but then again, if someoen misses out on their favorite show because it is not included in the package, then they are going to be pretty upset, and I am going to hear about it. So it would probably be a good idea for me to check into this in some more detail.

I am going to look at all of the deals and try to get a listing of the channels that are available when you purchase one of these deals. That should really help me when it comes to determining the right package to get. I know what channels I want to get and I know which channels my family members like to watch, for the most part. Maybe I should go ask them and doule check, to make sure that I am not forgetting anything that seems to be pretty important. But I will do that later on the day.
