DirectTV: Number One in Ratings

By David Johnson

DirecTV is number one in customer service satisfaction by J.D. Power and Associates. They should be as they offer more than 250 channels of 100 percent digital television to more than 15 million customers in America.

DirecTV offers their state of the art satellite and receiver with professional installation for free with a new subscription. They also offer a personal digital video recorder (DVR) which is a new device that you will find you cannot enjoy your viewing entertainment without it. This DVR allows you to record all of your favorite programs and store up to seventy hours on the hard drive.

The DirecTV system also comes with a nice little remote with a few key features that do more than the average remote. It comes with the standard pause, resume, fast forward, rewind, stop, and skip. The pause button allows you to pause and resume live television. It can even do a slow-mo instant replay and skip commercial on recorded programs. Try doing that with your normal cable television remote.

DirecTV's DVR can also record two different shows simultaneously making it impossible for you to miss your favorite show as long as you remember to schedule it for recording.

With the 100 percent digital picture and sound that DirecTV subscribers receive they can enjoy watching everything in clear clean picture quality immediately. The installation process is quick.

DirecTV offers a huge variety of programming choices and packages that can vary from 155 to more than 250 channels. The three packages are total choice, total choice plus, and total choice premier. These different packages can include local channels, news and information channels, family and children channels, and pay per view events. They can also include XM satellite music channels if you are interested in commercial free radio.

DirecTV also has exclusive right to NBA basketball and NFL football games. With the NFL Sunday Ticket that DirecTV offers you can get 14 professional league football games every week during the season, something no other provider can offer. You can also get additional college football games.

DirecTV's line up is also internationally diverse. They offer programming selection in Spanish and Chinese. They also offer many other channels that offer international sports, news, arts, and other entertainment such as cricket, soccer, and lacrosse games.

You can find details for DirecTV offers online including their lineups and pricing information. You can even get free next day installation in some areas.

From the time DirecTV was released to the open public back in 1994 it was the first digitally broadcast system in the world. With its subscriber base now extending past 15 million customers in America alone it isn't showing any signs of slowing down in popularity any time soon. In fact DirecTV made over three billion dollars in revenue in the year 2005 alone.

The satellite TV industry has become a very competitive industry giving customers more choices at a lower price. The top two companies are constantly trying to out do each other but it is safe to stick with the one that is constantly rated number one, DirecTV.
