My TV and Me

Everybody knows that watching television (TV) is one of the greatest American pastimes. My day is always started with the local morning show. This is where a get a bit of news, weather, sports, and the latest imprudence in and about my city. If working from home is on my schedule, watching TV is number 1 on the list of fabulous things. I get to watch my favorite programs: The Golden Girls, Good Times, Judge Mathis, and a slew of “un-wife” like “housewife shows”. One might think that my life is grounded and surrounded in the tube. They’re right! It is. Watching TV is my everything; therefore being able to connect to a host of various programming is important.

For eons, there was debate about who provided the better service; was it cable TV or satellite. Since graduating college, I was an apartment girl until a few years ago. Apartment living provided an easy breezy, worry free lifestyle. However, the only option was cable. Many apartment communities didn’t want the assumed hassle of satellite. As a homeowner, there are options in the programming battle - Hatfields vs. the McCoys (cable vs. satellite).

One option is DIRECTV. DIRECTV is an affordable solution for recession proofing your budget. DIRECTV offers 150 channels beginning at $29.99 per month. Your family can connect more TVs within your lovely abode – up to 15 TVs can be connected with DIRECTV. Additionally, the programming is vivid. DIRECTV gives a boost to HD channels. Who doesn’t want to clearly see Idris Elba or George Clooney. Most importantly, DIRECTV has something for everyone; women, men, children, tweens, teens, and family.

What is your choice of TV connectivity?

I love my comcast cable service it's great!!!

We have direct tv. At first i thought I would not like it but now I love! There are a million chanels so I had to set my favs

I have comcast and they are expensive but I managed to get a good deal out of them. Direct tv would be great but I don't want to be put into a contract.

My family has always gotten Time Warner. I'm not really sure why. We tried DirectTV when we moved to a new house, but it didn't work out. They took forever to put in the satellit and there was always a problem everytime the cable guy came. So my mom just told them to unhook it and we went right back to Time Warner. But I suppose any TV provider is good. As long as you get to watch your shows. Haha.

I have Comcast but I've had DirectV. However, I don't like the idea of being under a contact.

I wish they had more option perhaps I'd try Time Warner.

We currently have charter and it is okay. I did like Comcast but it is expensive. We are currently renting & can't opt for Direct TV. I never like the idea of contracts but sometimes it is a better deal. I don't watch much TV but I do have a list of must see shows.

We use Time Warner Cable and also have HD channels. I agree that watching Idris Elba in HD is a guilty pleasure of mine :-)

girl, ain't no one gonna mess with my cable tv and an hdtv. those two together are better than any marriage i know! LOL

I watch so little TV that I don't even have cable. I rely primarily on Netflix to get my Law and Order fix :P

I used to have satellite but strong storms would interrupt service so I switch to Comcast and then to nothing, as I canceled all services. Now I have a 60" TV, a PS# + Netflix, and no cable/dish. I'd like to keep it that way :)

We use Charter and they suck. I want Comcast but they do not offer service in thea are I live in. I have considered satellite but I hear that when it rains the tv goes out and I like to bundle my service. However, I may look into satellite because of the awful customer service that I receive from Charter.

we have direct tv... and i think it's not bad at all... but then i wouldn't really know how others are because i don't really have a choice when it comes to cable. my husband has the final say because he has to go with the one that carries his sports channels. i think it's definitely a better choice than dishes....:D

We've had directv before. I'm not sure why we switched, but we may switch back again. I just happen to love the Golden Girls. My husband thinks I'm a little nutty. :)
