Looking at the different satellite TV packages, you can see countless ways in which programming options will open up. The premium movie networks will make the idea of getting films at home in any other way obsolete. Besides, the packages of different regional sports networks can get you the local broadcasts of baseball and basketball teams around the country. Maybe best of all, however, it what happens when you add HD access to your satellite subscription.
Showtime networks: Gone are the days when premium satellite networks only have one channel to offer subscribers. Taking the Showtime network for example, you’ll see four different stations available in the high def format. This means the opportunity to explore the entire catalog of Showtime entertainment, from the Showcase to Showtime Extreme. Different sporting events and movie premieres will always be on the menu in high def.
Educational networks: For the kids and the interested minds among all of us, the high def educational networks are a real treat. Satellite subscriptions feature such trusted brands as the Learning Channel, National Geographic and Planet Green. In addition, ABC Family and Starz Kids and Family will all be a part of the HD Access packages. Having your child learn something and enjoy the entire process may never get this easy again.
Movie networks: It isn’t all about the heavy hitter premium movie channels when you get onto the satellite network. The smaller movie channels will often offer viewers a chance to take a spin with independent cinema and foreign films not seen elsewhere. For a look into older Hollywood, Turner Classic Movies and American Movie Classics are the channels to watch, while IFC showcases the best in independent cinema from around the world. In addition, networks like Sleuth and Chiller give viewers a look at thrillers and other interesting crime dramas.
Sports networks with the local flavor: Getting onto networks like NESN in Boston and YES in New York – plus the other 15 or so on offer – will give you the opportunity to see the big games as they are happening in different cities around the country. For the fan who is missing his or her hometown, this option will make you feel like you’re back at Mom’s house. Needless to say, when the national networks are preoccupied with the World Series of Poker or some other event which doesn’t hold your interest, these high def networks will bring you plenty of action, live.
News and information: The other side of television spectrum is information, and there are countless channels to access with high def packages. From CNN and MSNBC to Fox Business, Bloomberg and CNBC, you will always have the opportunity to stay informed when you want it. Investors following the overseas markets can stay tuned though the night, while the political debates are constantly heating up television screens. The public’s fascination with the political scene does not seem to be cooling down.
