I Wanted to Have DirecTV
When I bought a large farmhouse in the middle of a very rural area, I knew that I had the best of both worlds. I had my country setting, but anything I could need was less than a 15 minute drive away. The only thing I was not sure about was my DirecTV availability because of all the trees that were around my house. I know that there has to be a clear line of sight, which I had no idea if I had or not, but I did get encouraged when I saw satellite dishes sprinkled up and down the road I live on.
I went online and put in my address, and it showed that I was eligible for DirecTV in my location. I was so happy because even though cable was definitely available in this area, I knew I would only be truly happy with DirecTV for a number of reasons. The main one is because of their prices. Signing up as a new DirecTV customer meant that I was eligible to get some pretty great deals. I had checked out DirecTV before this, so I knew that even without the deals, their prices are among the best in the industry.
Since I was eligible for deals though, I knew that made it even more irresistible to me. In addition to a lot more channels than the local cable company provides, there are also more plans. This means that I did not have to pay for channels that I was not going to watch, because of the number of plans they have. I was able to sign up under a programming deal for two years, and I got quite a few other freebies thrown in too, making the deal even sweeter for me. The best part of all is that the installer had no problem getting a clear line of sight!
