Different Direct TV Programming Plans

Published on

I already knew that I was going to get satellite TV service. What I did not know was what package I wanted. Money was not an issue because the prices for all of the DirecTV packages were already very low. I just wanted to make sure that I was getting the right plan. I did not want to get a plan that was missing channels that I really like, nor did I want to get a plan that had an excess of channels that I would never watch. I decided to go online and look at the different packages to see which one would be the best plan as well as the best deal.

There are so many packages, which did not make my choice easier at first. The Select package is the lowest priced one, and it as over 135 popular channels in it, including family programming as well as news, educational channels and locals as well. Moving up to the next package, the Entertainment is only five dollars more and it has additional channels like ESPN. The Choice is only five dollars more, and it has over 40 more channels than the Select plan.

Notice a trend yet? The XTRA is five dollars more, and there are over 220 channels in it. The Ultimate plan has over 240 channels, and the Premier has every channel in addition to premium movie channels. See why my choice was so hard to make? I finally decided to go with the Choice plan since it was in the middle of the pack. I knew that I could always downgrade or upgrade if I needed to, but it turned out that the Choice is the perfect one for me. Having so many choices available means that a person is going to get exactly what they want, which is the best way a company can put the customer first.

Trying to Streamline Office Operations

Published on

Lou and I have spent the last couple of days trying to figure out where we can make the operation more efficient and less costly. Of course it is that way with a lot of small businesses and we are not any different. We are working hard to make the business work more efficiently and right now we are trying to streamline office operations. I have been looking at an invoice generator and hoping that it might make things run a lot more efficiently on that front. We seem to spend a whole lot of time dealing with invoices at this point in time and it does not seem like we are doing that as effectively as we would like from the point of view of man hours. The idea we are having is that we want to keep our office staff as small as is possible. Obviously we need it to be as efficient as possible and to be able to do as much work as is needed. We definitely want to maintain the operations out on the floor as best as we are able. That is what we get paid to do in the final analysis. We have to produce a product and we have to do it with the requisite quality. You can not make sacrifices on that front, if you do the customer is going to notice and they are not going to look favorably upon it. They are going to expect you to give them exactly what they want and exactly what they are going to be paying for. If you do not deliver that, then they are going to find some other company that can do what they want to see done. It is really that simple and you have to live under those restrictions.
