When my husband and I first got married, we decided we would have three children. It didn’t quite turn out that way though. We had two boys in the first few years of our marriage, then we had triplets. Having five kids so close in age is both rewarding and challenging. As they have gotten older, it is amazing to watch their personalities develop. They are so alike in some ways and completely different in others. That is one of the reasons why we decided to get DirecTv. They used to enjoy watching the same shows when they were younger, but each one has their own favorites now.

When you mix that with my husband and myself, we really did need a television programming provider that offered us the most choices. With our cable package, we just did not have enough of a variety for channels nor could we all watch something different if we wanted to. Since we could only record two programs and watch a third, it meant that between the seven of us, we only had three choices for any given time. That might be sufficient for some families, but it was not working for us.

With DirecTv, we are now able to record five different programs at the same time. In addition to that, we can watch anything that is recorded on any television. With cable, we had to watch it on the TV that it was recorded on, but all of the receivers share the same programming with DirecTv. That means if I am watching a recorded program in the living room and want to finish it in my bedroom, it is no problem at all. This has resolved a lot of grumbling in our house, and my only regret is that we did not switch over to satellite much sooner than when we did!
