I wanted to learn more about Cable ONE. I had not had TV in my apartment since I moved in, but I started missing it when some friends talked about different things they had watched. A few of them had Cable ONE, and a few had DIrecTV. I wanted to compare the two to see which one would be best for me. I had heard a lot about both of them, because DirecTV is such a popular TV programming provider and Cable ONE is one of the largest providers as well in the United States.
I was able to find a website that had information about both of these providers, and that really helped me to compare the two to see which would be the best one for me. What I liked about Cable ONE is that they offer two different kinds of programming packages. The first is economy that offers mostly local programming. The other is standard, and that is the kind that most people have since it includes national programming as well as a lot of perks in the equipment. When I looked at DirecTV, I saw where they have quite a few packages though, and I knew that I was going to be able to find one that is better suited for me from them.
There are a lot of extras thrown in with DirecTV too, and that just made my choice that much easier. I was able to get all of the premium movie channels like HBO, Cinemax, Starz and the rest for three months. The great thing is that I can even record from these channels and watch even after the three month trial period is up. I liked the price for the programming package that I wanted, and that is how I ended up becoming a DirecTV customer.
