You probably know some of the details of how satellite TV works. You know that there are only three simple components to these systems, and that the satellite technology is able to offer superior sound and picture quality, plus a wider range of nationwide and international channels than ever before. Another perk is the fact that you are able to customize the channel offering that you wish to receive.

Choosing Your Direct TV Channel Programming

Yes, the Direct TV system is similar to the cable TV you're used to in that they both require you to purchase a basic package. Remember "basic cable"? You buy a basic package with Direct TV as well, and add on premium channels like HBO, Cinemax, and so on - but, it is also possible to tack on specialty channels that aren't included in your package, if you so desire.

You simply have to request these channels. While Direct TV keeps track of viewer demand, and offers the most popular channels as a matter of course, there are sometimes special channels, like international programming, that some people want to be able to access. With the ease of satellite signal transmission, these channels can be broadcast to your home, no matter where you live.

If you want to get one of these channels tacked on, or "a la carte", you will be paying a little bit more for it. But, when you figure that you're not able to get these channels at all otherwise, it's a good option. With Direct TV, you can tailor your viewing experience.
