When I moved into a new rental house, I was hoping that I would be able to get Internet and TV with Directv. I had never had service with them before, but I had researched my options once I knew where I was going to move, and I was the most happy with what they offer to their customers. It was really nice that I was able to find out everything I needed to know online. I had wanted to do the same with the cable company, but their website really did not have a lot of info on it, especially compared to the Direct TV website.
I wasn’t sure if I would be able to get a signal because of the amount of trees that are around the house I am renting, but I was hopeful since so many of the neighbors up the road had the satellite dishes on the sides of their houses. Even though I have more trees, it looked like the line of sight was going to be okay. I called the number on the website when I got settled in, and they were able to send someone out that same week.
I was worried that I would have to pay if the tech determined that the line of sight was going to be an issue, but that was not the case at all. He had no problem setting the dishes up, and I was able to get both TV programming as well as Internet through Direct TV. He had told me that if I had not been able to, I still would not have been charged! I was able to get a low price on both services since I am bundling them together, and it is everything that I had hoped it would be, from the service of both to the prices!
I am thinking about taking a trip up to see a friend of mine in Charleston, SC soon. I have not seen him since we were in college about six years ago and the two of us used to have a lot of fun. I am in Savannah now and it is not that far from there. At any rate I am waiting on the cable guy from Cox to come hook up my TV and Internet. I got one of those package deals, although I probably should have looked around more. I think it was like this deal, http://www.cable-tv.com/cox/georgia/savannah/ and it is hard to figure out whether or not there are any strings attached. It is hard to know how easily you can get out of it for one thing. The big thing is that you have to worry about getting stuck with a deal that gets worse and worse every time you turn around.
The deal you see in big bold letters is really sweet. It looks great and it is, so long as the initial introductory terms are in effect. The problem is that they always expire after three months or 6 months and then the cable company starts to raise the stakes on you. Before you know it they are charging you two or more times what you started out paying. It is great when you have the deal that costs you seventy five dollars for cable tv and broadband Internet, but at some point they start to hit you with a fee here and a fee there, then they bump the rate up and before you know it they are charging you about a hundred and fifty dollars a month. You can eat on that if you are a really frugal person, although not well.
