The Kids Were Right About DirecTV

My kids had been bugging me for several weeks to look into DirecTV, and I finally did that just to get them to stop bugging me about it. I was just pacifying them, because we already had cable service. I did not see any reason to change our provider because there was nothing wrong with what we had, and I am a firm believer in not fixing something that isn’t broke. Well, my attitude changed after I looked at I saw that while there was nothing wrong with my cable provider, there were quite a few things that were better with satellite television.

The main thing that I like about DirecTV is the equipment. With cable, we could only watch shows that we recorded on the television set that it was recorded on. I didn’t even think to consider how nice it would be to start watching a movie in the living room, then pausing it to go to my bedroom and finishing it there. This also comes in handy when I am watching something that I have recorded while I am making dinner. I can pause it when it is time to eat, then finish watching it later either in the living room or bedroom.

The great thing about this is that we can record nearly three times the amount of programs with our DirecTV box, and any of us can watch these recorded shows on any TV. Even better, we can record from any TV too. If my son is watching something in his bedroom and he needs to stop for any reason, all he has to do is push the record button on his remote. That will record the show from the beginning, and he can finish watching it on any TV in our house at any time. We are saving money too because of a great promotion that we were able to get on, so it is just better all the way around.
