When my cable company changed the channel line up, I got upset. While I could still watch my favorite show if I wanted to, it meant that I would have to subscribe to their most expensive package. I didn’t think that was fair that they put such a popular channel in the highest priced package, and I decided that I was not going to play their games. I looked at the channel information for DirecTV because I knew that they had some impressive prices for new customers. When I saw that the channel I wanted was in a mid level package, I contacted them to get more information.
They told me all of the perks that I would get for switching over to them. Not only would I get better prices, but the installation would also be free. When the rep started telling me about the Genie receiver, I knew that I was going to switch. I didn’t even know technology like that existed because my cable company had nothing like it with their equipment. I would also get free channels for the first few months, including the premium movie channels like HBO, Showtime, and Cinemax.
I had never had those before because I couldn’t afford them with my cable company. The price was similar with DirecTV if I wanted to keep them, but it was a better value because I would get up to ten channels in one package as opposed to just two with my cable company. There was not one thing that the rep told me that I did not like, and I started the process with that phone call to change my providers. When I called the cable company to let them know, they tried to convince me to stay, but their offers couldn’t begin to match what DirecTV was offering me.
