We changed from Dish Network to DirectTV when we had St. Todd DeCubbville install our BATV. I actually made the decision based pretty much on price. We got a good price with some free premium channels for a few months free.
But now that we have it, I’m finding that DirectTV is a lot better than Dish Network. We can’t get HiDef on our local network affiliates. Insight Communications, our cableco, just couldn’t figure out how it could be done via Tivo, DirectTV, or their own damn cable.
Actually, the cable guy didn’t even know what Tivo is. Serious. He. Didn’t. Know.
Anyhoo… when the U.S. Open was on NBC, we lost the chance to see it in HiDef. Once you have seen HiDef you know how I was suffering.
BUT: DirectTV had an interactive channel for the U.S. Open (maybe you have seen the commercials for some tennis tournament coming soon?) So I had a choice of four HiDef options:
- four screens at once
- hole #17
- featured pairing
- golfers in depth (features)
The other advantage is the DirectTV DVR records about a tritillion hours of programming. I think Tivo will only record 8 hours.
Plus I could get the leaderboard anytime I wanted, and some other cool junk.
If you are getting satellite television, or would would dump Dish Network for something better, Direct TV will give you $100 off. If you use my secret passcode: 82408932… then I also get $100.
Help fund the Going Like Sixty Dinking Around Foundation. You get $100, I get $100.
All God’s chillen’ get $100.
Give them your DIRECTV account number and tell them to order online at directv.com/refer or by calling 1-800-507-4045. They must have your DIRECTV account number when they order.
And thank you for your support.
