Direct TV Leads The Satellite TV Industry

When you subscribe to satellite TV service with Direct TV, you're signing up for the best television experience available today. That's because no one offers more channels with more user friendly technology.

A great example of how far Direct TV goes to please its customers can be seen in how many channels it provides. Right now, the company offers well over eight hundred channels of audio and video programming. That's a lot more than any other television service provider anywhere.

While Direct TV does offer a lot of channels, it also recognizes that larger is not always better. Sure having over eight hundred channels to choose from would be a surefire way to prevent ever being bored with television programming, but in reality, most people would find it overwhelming. There would simply be to much great programming to choose from. That's why Direct TV has divided this huge number of channels into smaller programming packages. Besides being more manageable, different programming packages provide choices for different customers who have different television needs and different levels of income.

Total Choice Premier is a great choice for anyone who has to have the absolute best television programming package available.

It has the majority of the great channels that you've come to expect with a mainstream TV programming package. These one hundred and fifty five channels cover music videos, movies, sports, news, home improvement, cartoons, home shopping, and much more.

All three packages; Total Choice, Total Choice Plus, and Total Choice Premier; all come with your local channels and a wide variety of XM satellite radio channels. Both of these extras add a lot of value to your programming package because, in the case of the local channels, they provide the programming from the major national networks, and in the case of the XM satellite radio channels, they provide a wide variety of music in CD quality sound that may …
