television viewers, who still subscribe to cable television, have not changed
over to satellite yet based on the assumption that satellite television is
still extremely expensive. Although this
is no longer true, because of companies such as DirecTV, it would be a lie to say that that assumption
was not grounded in reality. It is true
that in the past, having a subscription to a satellite television provider was
synonymous with being wealthy. This is
because, in the past, satellite television used to have very high monthly rates
as well as very high costs for necessary satellite equipment and
installation. This of course was all
topped off by a very expensive start up fee.
If you remember, the old satellite dishes used to be gigantic and they
cost just about as much as you would guess they would. Thankfully technology has advanced
considerably in the satellite television field since then and because of that
it is no longer necessary for satellite television companies to charge an arm
and a leg. You will notice that micro
technology has allowed the satellite dish itself to be brought down to a
fraction of the size that it was in times past.
With the diminished size of the actual satellite dish, the size of the
satellite bill has diminished considerably as well, maybe even more so. In fact, with DirecTV you can get a
programming package that contains a much larger amount of channels than you
have already, as well as all of your local channels, for a monthly cost that is
at least comparable to what you are already paying with a subscription to cable
television. You will be glad to know
that the savings do not stop there however.
With DirecTV, there is absolutely no start up or initialization fee
whatsoever. In fact, when you sign up
with DirecTV you will actually get all of the satellite gear for free along
with a free professional installation.
The gear that you will get from DirecTV includes the satellite dish
itself, the remote control, a TiVo unit, a Digital Video Recorder, and a
genuine Hughes brand television top receiver.
Right there all of the reasons that satellite television was so
expensive to subscribe to in the past are eliminated! Why wait now when you no longer have to worry
about the bill?
