The on screen program guide also ties directly into software like Direct TV's Parental Controls which will block your children's access to certain kinds of programming based on your exact specifications. For example, you can block all movies that are rated PG-13 and R, the entire Spice Channel, and the television show "Viva La Bam" no matter when it's on or which channels it's on. More importantly, you can go back and watch all of those things if you want to when the kids aren't around just by entering your own personal identification number.
Another type of technology that's been thoroughly tested by Direct TV Channels and provides a huge advantage to many subscribers is Digital Video Recording. A Direct TV satellite receiver with a built in Digital Video Recorder will let you take control of what you watch and when you watch it by giving you the ability to record anything you want. It's most useful for the TV shows that you love, but are kept from watching by outside obligations. A digital video recorder from Direct TV is so easy to use though, that you may end up recording everything that you watch so that you can have the convenience of fast forwarding through the commercials when you get around to watching it. All of the recorded video is stored on a built in hard disk and, depending on which model you end up with, you might be able to record as many as two hundred hours of programming before you have to start deleting programs to make more room!
High definition television, which is often called HDTV for short is another great technology provided by Direct HD Deals. HDTV is the future of television and features a high resolution picture, wide screen 16:9 aspect ratio, and Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound. It's the affordable choice for anyone who wants to turn their home entertainment system into a home theater!
All of these features make Direct TV the ideal choice for reliable user friendly and enjoyment enhancing television technology.
