How today's television offerings go beyond the TV itself
Television is no longer limited to viewing on a screen in your living room. Technology is rapidly advancing allowing you to view your favorite shows from your laptop and smartphone. Stations are broadcasting free mobile TV signals that can be received on your tablet or laptop, as well. Cable and satellite providers give you access to HBO, Cinemax and more to view on your iPad, laptop and phone.
Technology takes television beyond your TV screen:
Now you can choose where you want to watch your favorite programs. If you commute to work, you can still watch the morning news while you are on the bus. There is no need to wait for a recap later. Get your news on your phone as it breaks. Take your lunch break and enjoy a favorite comedy instead of reviewing your old emails. All you need is a 3G or Wi-Fi signal.
You can still enjoy a Sunday dinner with family and watch the latest sports. You will not need to rush home to enjoy watching the game live. If you are worried about the weather, you do not need to rely on text messages. With the ability to pick up your local weather channel from any location, you will know exactly where any danger is.
These mobile TV benefits also work in your home. While someone is viewing a favorite cooking show, you can still watch the movie you want to see. Two sports programs that are on at the same time are no problem. View one show on TV while the other runs on your laptop or smartphone.
Imagine this scenario; a friend sends you a text message about a program you would be interested in viewing. Unfortunately, you will be stuck in a meeting until long past the show time. You cannot get home to program your DVR to record the show. Applications are available that allow you to program your DVR from your mobile device.
DirecTV offers five different programming packages so you can choose the best selection of DirecTV channels
for your needs. You do not even need to hunt for the DirecTV channels that you are interested in viewing. Channel numbers are right at your fingertips. Get more value for your entertainment dollar at no extra charge. Enjoy having more control over what you want to watch and when you want to watch it.
