All TV programming service providers are not the same and neither are the satellite TV systems and components that they have to offer you. Virtually all of the major satellite TV service providers will give you a free satellite TV system free of charge when you sign an extended service agreement, but if it turns out to be a low quality unit that is prone to malfunction and breakdown, this might not turn out to be such a good deal after all.

Once the limited warranty expires, if they gave you one, then the system and the receiver or receivers are your problem. While you are stuck with a broken or faulty satellite TV system or receiver you are still obligated to the agreement that you signed, so it is in your best interest not to grab up the first system that is offered you and rather to shop around and get the best quality satellite TV system and receiver or receivers that you can get and be assured that that it will be trouble free for years to come.

While some satellite TV service providers have chosen to use cheaply produced equipment obtained from over seas sources DirecTV has taken the high road and uses only quality built Hughes name brand satellite systems and components. Hughes satellite systems come with a long standing reputation for quality and reliability that follows them up to this very day and this is the major reason DirecTV carries Hughes satellite systems and components exclusively.

Their base model is the Hughes Director and it is a solid and durably built no frills unit that is built to last. It has a limited amount of functions, because the package that it comes with is the Family Choice forty channel package. This is why this receiver doesn’t have the custom menu or the programming search features and has a one-hundred and twenty-five channel capacity.

The next level up in Hughes receiver that DirecTV stocks, is the Hughes Executive receiver and it is equipped to handle DirecTV’s larger programming packages that come with hundreds of channels. This receiver has the custom menu and the programming search function along with other features such as parental control just to name a few.

With the Hughes Executive you also get the choice of having standard DVR or DVR Powered by TiVo installed. With DVR Powered by TiVo you can do your own instant slow motion replays and also zip right past any commercials in mere seconds. TiVo also allows you to stop any program and the restart it right where it left off when you return to your seat.

All of Hughes DVR receivers have one-hundred and twenty-five hours of memory for storing your recorded programming with the exception of their high definition DVR receivers that hold one hundred and fifty hours. DirecTV gives you your choice of two high definition receivers and one is a basic model similar to the Director. The other high definition is similar to their Executive model of Hughes receiver. This model also comes with the DVR and DVR Powered by TiVo feature options. Why accept lower quality satellite system components, when you can go with the proven Hughes name.
