To Be Direct, DirecTV’s The Best

With over 35 moves in my life, I’ve had most of the cable or satellite TV offerings that are available and one thing still holds true:

DirecTV is still the best overall product.

Let me clear, I don’t currently have DirecTV as I switched to another company bundle my home phone, TV and internet services together to save money.

Just in sports programming I notice a difference, however, as it seems DirecTV takes care to offer some smaller channels, like Peachtree in Georgia, for instance, for a few more Atlanta Braves games than its competitors.

And MASN, and ESPN3D, the latter two not offered on U-Verse, for instance. I miss my DirecTV, especially when I see one of their clever and/or funny ads.

I enjoy the most recent one, slippery slope argument that  it may be, that if you don’t subscribe to DirecTV you will wind up with a grandson with a dog collar.

Funny stuff, indeed.

I’ve had direct tv before and it was fine. However it was still satellite and there were times when my service was snowy or went off due to weather storms. I have surewest fiber optics and now I never lose service. I can now dvr 4 shows simultaneously and was limited to 2 before. I also get a discount for having all my services through surewest. They call me each year and offer discounts and incentives to keep my business. Direct tv never called. I had to call them to find discounts.

Bottom line…I liked direct tv, but I LOVE Surewest.
