How DIRECTV cable works
DIRECTV streams content via a satellite signal. There are several significant differences between DIRECTV and regular cable TV:
- Satellite TV means no one can accidentally cut your line.
- Satellite presents 100% digital channels, meaning you get the best picture and sound quality
- Satellite can often give you more bang for your buck.
- Satellite gives you 1080p quality, something not every cable provider can offer. 1080p is the highest quality standard in the industry and is the same quality as Blu-rayTM.
- Satellite providers offer thousands of On Demand movies that you can stream in 1080p.
- Satellite providers like DIRECTV and DISH rank higher than cable in customer satisfaction, according to the 2011 American Customer Satisfaction Index.
DIRECTV – more HD channels than other cable services
Although standard definition TVs are still widespread, HD has become standard. HD broadcasts typically come in two different qualities: 720p and 1080i. Most cable providers offer 1080i as their highest broadcast definition.
DIRECTV offers 1080p, the final step above 1080i. 1080p is the same quality as Blu-ray™ – the quality you see at the movies. If you want to see the finest HD quality available and get full use of your Blu-ray™ player, satellite providers like DIRECTV cable are your best bet.
DIRECTV offers 190+ full-time HD channels (the most HD channels of any company) and the most sports in HD. DIRECTV also streams local channels in HD to almost every home in the United States.
