Advantages of HDTV

DirecTV currently offers 95 channels of high definition television, otherwise known as HDTV. Buying a new movie on Blue Ray or HD format can be pricey. In fact, you may be limited to enjoying your new wide screen television on the weekends, when you can afford to buy a new $50.00 DVD. Ordering satellite TV not only gives you the latest Hollywood films in HD, it also provides dozens of channels of original content, encore presentations and your favorite network and cable channels that you tune into every week.

What are some of the advantages that high definition television has to offer? If you have ever wanted to bring the movie experience home and create your own home theater system then a digital HD television is the only way to achieve that goal. An HD television set provides clearer pictures, superior sound quality, a wider viewing screen and progressive scanning. Ordinarily, this large TV system would be useless, if you were only using it to rent DVDs. Otherwise, you would be watching regular TV content on a wide screen TV that is equipped for so much more. HDTV offered by DirecTV combines the theater system experience with the high level of channels offered by regular satellite or cable television.

The two biggest advantages to consider is the improved quality of HDTV along with the variety of channels now available for this service. What are some of the most popular channels that are now available in high definition? Not counting the big networks, you can enjoy premium channels such as HBO, Cinemax, Showtime, The Movie Channel and Toon Disney. You can enjoy multiple sports channels such as The NFL Network, the NHL, NBA TV and The Tennis Channel. Over in educational programming, you can enjoy Animal Planet, The History Channel, National Geographic and The Discovery Channel on a high-resolution wide screen. In fact, DirecTV has more channels than any other TV distributor, including network broadcast, cable providers and other satellite providers like Dish Network. They currently offer 95 channels exclusively made for high definition digital TVs.

In addition to these advantages, HDTV also resolves typical TV problems such as low quality sharpness, problems with brightness or contrast, discolorations and other visual or audio imperfections. HDTV also eliminates problems related to double images (ghosting), snow caused from weak signals and picture “sparkles” that result from impulse noise. When you compare an HDTV channel to a standard channel, you are getting a picture about five times as sharp as what you are accustomed to seeing.

In 2009, all networks will switch over to digital broadcasting. This means that you will either have to buy a digital television set, order cable or install a digital converter box if you don’t choose satellite TV. Why not buy a higher quality television and order DirecTV, paying less for 95 high-resolution channels that you can actually watch? Regular network programming has never looked so good and the last time you remember your favorite movie looking this dynamic was at the theater!
