I have always enjoyed watching tv and became addicted to getting the best that i could afford to watch everything my way. Direct tv gives it's customers that option with its many different packages. I have also tried dish and Time Warner Cable and i was not satisfied with either of them. Time Warner Cable to me is just cable but with a guide and some HD Channels. Dish is just a duplicate for Direct tv but more expensive and just showy and doesn't really live up to expectations. Direct TV offers many programs especially for sports fanatics like me. I love that if offers many programs like NFL sunday ticket which allows me to watch my favorite football team every time it is not shown locally. it also offers it for baseball and basketball which are the biggest sports in the US. When i lived with my parent they had the spanish package which is something great if one only speaks spanish and can get more than 5 or 7 channels. Direct Tv also gives their customers a chance to keep make some extra money by referring their program to others which is 100 dollars for both parties. I would recommend this product for anyone who enjoys all the features that TV offers, and get paid in the process haha.
