If you are still watching cable television and dealing with the daily hassles of recording with a VCR, the time for looking into satellite television from DirecTV is now. For many years cable was the television standard just as the VCR was the television recording standard. Nowadays both cable and the VCR are all but totally obsolete. For one, most people have gotten used to the idea that if they want to catch their favorite shows they need to plan their week around the shows times. This also applies to recording the shows with the VCR. If somebody is working during their favorite shows air time they would have to set their VCR to record for that specific time and hope that they set the correct speed and that the VCR will follow through with it’s job. Many people have found that a VCR is not the most reliable piece of equipment. Reliability, of course, is a huge factor when it comes to using a device that is based on a timer. The failure of the VCR’s timer has, in turn, been the source of countless television viewers unending frustration. With the TiVo and DVR units offered from DirecTV, all recording is done digitally and if you miss your favorite show, you can just come home and rewind the television as if it was a VCR!
As far as cable television is concerned, besides the fact that many cable television providers have service problems accompanied with bad customer service, the amount of channels available by any one cable provider pales in comparison to that of a satellite provider like DirecTV. Each cable provider, for some seemingly unapparent reason, offers different channels based on zones in an area. In other words, while your best friend who lives in the next neighborhood over gets all of your favorite channels from his cable provider, you only get one of them. Typically when it comes to this sort of problem, there is nothing the viewer can do to get their favorite channel from their cable company as long as they live in that particular “zone”.
Another aspect of DirecTV that is so well known is their fabulous parental controls. One major problem with modern day television is the danger that gratuitous sexual and violent content poses on the young children of many television viewers. Many people blame the fact that many children are exposed to content that they should not be watching on the parents of the children. However, it is pretty difficult for the modern day parent to keep their children from seeing the content all day long. It would seem that the only effective way of keeping the children from seeing this content would be for the parent to watch television with their children all the time. This clearly is not possible what with all of the single parent households and multiple working spouses. This is way DirecTV has the parental control feature. DirecTV’s parental control feature is password protected and allows the parent to block out an entire channel or simply block it out at certain times of the day!
