Direct TV grew from a little known company with one dish to offer several dishes and over two hundred channels. They have developed several programming packages that can meet any monthly budget, many times, at cheaper rates than cable TV providers can offer them. The clear image and sound quality of their service has managed to impress almost everyone. They now boast of a customer base of up to 50 million consumers. Their programming content has grown to include childrenís shows, music and sports channels, channels that offer 24/7 movies, and drama and lifetime shows.
Direct TV does not just offer programming packages. They offer programming packages that include ethnic, music and sports channels that cable TV providers do not offer. For the services and products that cable TV does have, Direct TV has developed their own.
They have several dishes and products that can be upgraded, with offers of free equipment or free installation on certain deals or packages. They automatically include Parental Controls to protect the young minds in the house from adult content and they offer a great movie selection along with local and cable channels. There is always something on to watch for everyone, no matter the time day or night, or the age.
Currently, they also offer goods and services like HDTV, the higher-resolution formatting that delivers the picture and sound with better quality and clarity. To take digital clarity to a new level, they also offer HDTV 1080p formatting, a resolution that was designed to mimic theater imaging and sound quality. Critics have stated the HDTV 1080p formatting as being comparable to Blue Ray. Direct TV also offers Pay Per View channels with the DVR, or the Digital Video Recorder that allows the viewer to watch live Pay Per View events like fights and music concerts with the ability to fast forward, rewind or pause them for convenience. The DVR is also useful as storage, to record shows on one channel while watching shows on another channel. The customer has the luxury of watching their shows on their time, without having to make time or change the schedule to do it. They do not have to miss what they want to watch while someone else takes a turn, the recorded shows are always there when they are ready to see them.
Direct TV has as much to offer as any cable TV package on the market today, without the additional cost that seems to come with the expensive cable TV providers. Often times, people prefer Direct TV to cable TV because of the competitive services and products and the more than competitive pricing.
