    I hate to write articles like this, but it's only fair. AT&T yesterday announced their subscriber numbers, and their losses are impossible to ignore. 156,000 satellite TV customers left the service along with 195,000 customers of the service formerly known as ...

    So strap yourself in because it looks like there is another USB standard coming. I know, I know, you're just beginning to get used to the USB-C connector, and you admit that it's better even though you have to get all new cables and everything. And now I'm here to tell ...

    This Wilson Pro 70 cellular signal booster can't be sold by itself. It's actually illegal to do it. It's designed only for installers who create custom solutions for larger installations.

    If you truly need to boost signal in a large area like a warehouse or ...

    It's going to be a busy few months for baseball fans. DIRECTV's really going to town with 4K broadcasts of major league action, and they've released their schedule for the rest of the summer.

    Game of Thrones Season 7. Even if you don't like this show or have never seen it, chance are you're at least marginally aware that the latest season is premiered last weekend on HBO.

    Basically every cable and satellite provider in the United States is holding a free preview of all the HBO and Cinemax channels this weekend. They hope you'll get addicted to this and the other quality programming you'll find.

    Personally my advice to you is to fill up your DVR with everything you could possibly want from these channels because that content won't disappear after the free preview is over. The preview starts today (Friday) and goes all weekend and that means with ten channels and 48 hours you could be looking at 3 weeks' worth of content even if you watched 24/7. Add on-demand content and that could be another week or two. That's a lot of value from a free preview.

    And of course, if you'd like to pay for HBO, I'm sure your cable or satellite provider would appreciate that as well. If you're a DIRECTV or DISH customer, call us at Solid Signal at 877.312.4547 and we'll take care of everything!

    How can it be cheaper to put DIRECTV into your business? It may not make any sense, but putting in a DIRECTV private viewing account for business can actually be the cheapest way to give your employees access to entertainment programming.

    A lot of people think ...

    One of our competitors is selling an indoor antenna that is about the size of your window. They're calling it the most powerful flat antenna ever.

    Yeah, it probably is, if you want to cover your whole window with an antenna. I mean seriously, it blocks out the light from the whole window. I am not kidding.

    But yes, it's a flat antenna and it probably is the most powerful one ever, because it's just so big. With antennas, size matters. Sure, smaller antennas can make up for some of their problems with super-clean amplifiers and smart design, but there's no substitute for good old length when it comes to an antenna element. An antenna that is twice as long will pull in twice as much signal and that means it's going to do a great job pulling in those weak channels. An amplifier can't amplify a signal if it doesn't come in at all, and a smaller antenna just might not pull in those weaker signals, period.

    Personally I would rather use a more conventional antenna like the Xtreme Signal HDB4X inside if I couldn't mount it outside. OK, it's not flat. But it doesn't block out the light either. And it does meet most HOA requirements so if you have even a small patio or ledge that it can go on, it will work outside where that flat antenna will just flop around.

    At Solid Signal we are not developing a competing antenna to that gigantic one that covers your whole window, because we just don't believe people want it. Simple as that.
