Yes,you've read it right, our tv in our living room finally gave out, and it went out with a bang! In my grandma's house, where I spend some weekends with the kids, now occupied by my uncle and his family, and my sister, every room has a television, except the bathroom, but I'm told soon they might put one in there too! LOL Here at home where B and I reside, there are only 2 televisions, 1 in our living room/family room and one in Chakai's room. The one in Chakai's room is fairly new and have only gotten it when she turned 5. The one in our living room is around 35 years old. Believe it or not, it is even older than I am! It belonged to B's parents, you can say he kinda grew up with that thing, well, it finally gave out. It started a couple of weeks ago when its picture quality started to get blurry and we thought it had something to do with the cable company, and I remember asking B to switch to DIRECTV Service, because problems like these don't happen to DIRECTV subscribers, but then it wasn't the cable company's fault after all, it was the tv's way of telling us he's dying and that we should probably get a new one. Now, we are in the market for a new tv, and I am currently browsing through the available satellite tv networks, and I want to know exactly what satellite tv provide and if it is worth the money they ask us to pay. Do you have any tips on what company to go with? Is satellite tv better than cable? I'd love to hear what you have to say.
