DIRECTTV HD for the Big Party

Super Bowl Sunday was coming up! I had BIG plans. I had just moved into my new house and I wanted my family and friends to come over and watch the game on my 72? flat screen TV! I had purchased a top of the line Plasma equipped with HD 3D capabilities. Now all I needed was the DIRECT TV HD channels. It would be so awesome if we could actually watch the Super Bowl in 3D! So that I could get ready for my Super Bowl extravaganza, I needed to hurry up and finish setting everything up in my house.

I ran into several problems with my new house; Leaky roof, broken pipes and much more. The money in my checking and savings account was almost gone and my new job was not set to start for another 3 weeks. How was I going to fix my house and still throw that amazing party? Oh well, guess I was just going to have to wait until next year. I continued working on my house.

Finally when everything was done, I was surprised to see that I had a little bit of money left over. There was no way that I was going to be able to do the party though. I still needed cable. The local cable company was not cheap. Just to start out I would need a deposit along with the first and last month's monthly fee. There was no way that I could afford that. I really thought that I was going to have to forget about the game and the whole party idea.

When I seen a sign that advertised free satellite installation, I was in town buying groceries. The sign was pretty old but I was able to read the phone number of it. I wasn't even sure if that offer was still valid but I was going to take my chances and try calling anyways. So, after I finished my shopping I called the number. It was for DIRECTV. I had heard of them before and wanted to purchase DIRECT TV HD programming so that I could watch my movies in High Definition. To look up more information about them, I went to the local library and used the internet. Before I spoke to a customer service representative I wanted to know everything about the company and just what all they had to offer.

All of the amazing deals and offers that they had, I was really amazed. Their package plans started out as low as $29.99. As I continued researching I found that the installation was still free and that they offered a free HD DVR along with HD installation in up to three rooms and it was all for FREE for first time customers. I was absolutely amazed. Surely there had to be a catch. Was it possible to receive such great offers and not have to pay anything up front? According to DIRECT TV reviews, I could get great service at a very low price.

Before I called them, I decided that if I were to sign up with them that I would purchase the Choice Xtra package. The Choice Xtra package comes with free installation; free HD for LIFE, free HBO, CINEMAX, SHOWTIME and STARZ for the first three months. It also comes with over 200 digital channels. Not to mention the FREE HD DVR and HD installation in up to three rooms in my new house. Once I was away from home, I could also watch movies on my phone. How great is that? Using my DVR, I could record my favorite movies or TV shows when I'm away from home. No more rushing home from work on Monday nights to watch my favorite TV shows! In the face of the earth, I believe I became the happiest person after calling DIRECTV. Not only was I out of pocket absolutely nothing, I was also scheduled to have my services the very next day! I could now throw that BIG Super Bowl party and watch the game in HD! The day of the party was great! All of my friends and family came over and we sat in my living room and watched the big game. I can give an excellent entertainment to my guest, since I have DIRECT TV HD channels! The game on HD was so amazing to watch!
