Choosing a Satellite TV Dish Provider

Making the decision to leave cable and going with a satellite TV dish provider is a pretty big step. And once you decide to get a satellite dish you will then need to decide which dish provider to sign up with.

There are two major providers in the marketplace — DirectTV and Dish Network.

There are a lot of websites that try to compare the two services, but the problem you run into if you use one of these other websites is that they are often out of date. The cable and satellite TV industry is moving so fast, adding options and changing prices, that your best bet is to bypass these third-party websites and open up two windows in your browser and compare the options of each provider directly from its own website.

Once you decide upon which of the two providers you want to go with, you can always go back to your favorite search engine and search for a coupon or an introductory discount for that service.

Between the two satellite services, I have my favorite, but I think that which ever one you decide to go with, you’ll be pretty happy with.

Britains Got Talent last year was dominated by Scottish singer Susan Boyle and we all know how well she has done. This years its another Scot making the news on BGT Lanarkshire grandmother, 81 year old Janey Cutler. She stunned judges at her audition in Glasgow by belting out Non Je Ne Regrette Rien the well know Edith Piaf song. I just watched the her semi final this evening June 3rd and her performance was even more magnificent. She brought the house down with her version of Shirley Basseys ‘My Life’ and had a standing ovation from judges Simon Cowell, Piers Morgan, Amanda Holden and the audience.

Needless to say she sailed through getting a majority from the voting public. A very clever and original dancing duo, ‘Twist and Pulse’ join her and eight other acts in Saturdays final.

Janey Cutler has sang in the local pubs and clubs around her home in Scotland for years and this success has come very late for this elegant lady. That said nothing seems to phase her, and judging from the thousands of views she has had on You Tube since she ht the headlines she is going to have a hectic year.

Can she win the Britains Got Talent final this week? After tonight’s performance the odds are shortening fast and she is now a contender for the top spot.
