Description of service

I recently got a premium cable service with a dvr from a large satellite company. First of all it took probably two weeks for the company to get everything properly installed. The DVR cost $20 to install and then there's a rental/programing fee of $13/month. This leaves about $52 which was purely for their mid grade premium service which included almost 120 channels. However many of these channels are just filler so I would say that I actually use around 60 channels, and that might even be stretching it.

Review of Service

Like I mentioned before it took them about two weeks to get everything properly installed. During this time I was without TV, which for me was quite difficult. The installation crew was very nice and knowledgeable, just not very fast. An I was always forced to sit around waiting for the satellite company to come because the best time schedule they could give me was either in the AM or PM. Know that I actually have the service I'm quite happy with it because my life no longer revolves around the TV's schedule. I know make my own schedule.


Try to get an introductory deal which will usually be about half off. I opted to pay full price because the overall monthly price would be lower resulting in a better deal over a long period of time.
