Settle in with satellite TV this winter!

Oh the weather outside is frightful…

As winter weather descends upon us, many folks will be staying inside a lot more. This is the time when we all need a little something to help us keep busy. The internet is great, but when it comes to beating boredom, there’s nothing like live television.

Satellite television is more reliable, summer and winter, than cable. Period. Sure when it snows you’ll have to get the snow off the dish (or get a dish heater.) That takes a little while, but even when you consider signal loss due to snow, satellite beats cable hands down. Cable TV (and internet) are delivered by buried cables or cables hanging from telephone poles. This means that a storm that knocks down trees can also deprive you of TV for a week or more. During that time you may also lose local phone service and internet, and so you’ll be depending on your cell and your satellite for information. This makes satellite TV more than just a luxury… in an emergency it becomes a necessity.

Satellite TV brings you local news and sports, national programs, movies, just about every sort of entertainment you will need for snowed-in weekends. It doesn’t slow down or get flaky because more than one person uses it like internet does. It’s right there for you, 24/7, and you can fill your DVR with plenty of content to help you make it through those snowy evenings.
