Another great basic feature provided by Direct TV to all of its viewers is interactive software. Direct TV's interactive software gives subscribers the most possible control over their television experience. The on screen program guide is the central piece of software for the vast majority of subscribers. Direct TV's on screen program guide's major purpose is to inform television viewers about the programming currently being offered and the programming that will be offered in the near future. This information is presented in the form of an on screen television listing and includes, among other things, a summary of the plot or theme of most programs which is indispensable when it comes to deciding whether or not it's something that you might want to watch. The on screen program guide makes hundreds of channels manageable.
Direct TV's Parental Controls are other software measures that go a long way toward making television even more manageable by putting control over what your kids can and can't watch directly into your hands. Parental Controls allow you to block out programming that you decide is inappropriate. You can do this based on the MPAA ratings of movies and time frames. You can also block out entire channels or specific programs. You can even put limits on how much your kids can spend on pay per view programming. Best of all, you can still watch whatever you want with the use of your own personal identification number.
Direct TV Deals also offers HDTV satellite receiver equipment and the programming to watch on it. That means that you can enjoy the wide screen and high resolution picture of this television technology of the future, right now. Direct TV also offers satellite receivers with Digital Video Recorders built in so that you can record up to two hundred hours of your favorite programming to watch whenever you want!
With all of these features, Direct TV is the television service provider that makes sure to provide you with the technology that will enhance the way you watch TV.
