I am a couch potato. If given the choice between watching a movie at home or going out with friends to the local club, I almost always choose watching a movie. I also have a slew of television shows that I watch on a regular basis. There is no way I could ever watch all of them live, and that is why I have Direct TV. I did have a cable subscription up until a year ago, but it was rough for someone who likes to watch TV as much as I do.
I was only able to record two things at once on my cable receiver box, and sometimes there would be three or four of my favorite shows on at the same time. I was always able to go online and watch what I missed, or even go to the on demand channel, but I actually preferred to watch my shows using my DVR. I liked that I was able to fast forward through commercials and all the other benefits that come with having a DVR, but I couldn’t enjoy all of my programming because of the limitations of the receiver.
When I heard that Direct TV allows six programs to be recorded at the same time, I felt like a kid in a candy store. I knew I needed to have that receiver, but I was not sure that I could afford it. I always thought satellite TV was a lot more expensive than cable, but my research showed how wrong I was there too. I would be able to actually get more channels for a lower price, and have the capability of recording six shows at once. For a TV fanatic like me, there really is no other choice than to have a TV programming provider like that!
