Super Satellite Selection Circa 2010


This website served as an informative resource for explaining the benefits of satellite television over traditional cable TV programming and helping consumers choose which provider best meets their viewing needs: DIRECTV or Dish Network.

Content is from the site's 2010 archived pages.
No product or services can be ordered via this website.


An aside: When it comes to satellite TV providers, you really only have two choices: DISH and DIRECTV. In 2010 this was a great site that educated consumers and helped you to order your satellite TV service. Jump ahead to 2020. There are now more sites via an online search for DIRECTV and Dish Network satellite TV that offer opinions about which is better and opportunities to buy services.
Opinion: DISH vs DIRECTV: DISH is the best tv service provider for the money, but DIRECTV offers more HD channels. DIRECTV is also known for better sports packages. DISH is known for the better DVR that automatically skips commercials in selected primetime recordings. So there you have it. Depending upon your preference you can now get right down to selecting your TV package that will satisfy your viewing preferences.

It was more time consuming finding a dog bed for our new Bichon Frise than it was getting the best TV package. Honestly I didn't realize how many different type of dog beds that were available until I started searching. Unfortunately or maybe in the long run, fortunately, my partner limited my search by insisting that any dog bed that I select must not look like a typical dog bed. WHAT I said. Apparently she didn't want to ruin the look of our newly renovated, designer decorated condo with a typical dog bed. OK. I can understand. Several hours later I came across a site called GoodnightDog that sold round dog beds that were covered in upscale designer fabrics. They actually looked like floor pillows in the pictures where they were stacked up. I looked at the fabric designs and found one that I thought would compliment our living room and one that would look good in our bedroom. I made my presentation and was rewarded with a hug and a kiss. Dog beds were ordered. We loved them when they arrived, but the best part is that my dog loves his bed. Well, both beds. We have had some friends mistake them for floor pillows, but Minsky is willing to share the space. So while we watch our movies on DIRECTV, Minsky lies right next to us, curled up on his new dog bed.
