My friend had switched to Direct TV in TX too after I told her that I am so happy with the service of Direct TV. I made a comparison between the cable and Direct Satellite TV
and I couldn't be more happier that we are now enjoying the best of our TV shows with Direct TV.
Some few things that I like about Direct TV is the fact that its signal is reliable. You can't get any problem like " I can't watch my favorite shows tonight because the TV signal is acting weird" because all time, you can get a clear reception and the HD viewing is really great. Direct TV is also cheaper compared to most cable TV it means better and cheaper service. And I think one of the best thing about Direct TV is that they have customer service representive available 24/7 to answer questions and help you anytime you want some help.
Me and my friend in TX are so happy we did the switch. I'm sure you are too!
