Born from the legendary, technological prowess of Hughes Aircraft, and raised from infancy by a collaboration of Hughes Communications, Inc. and United States Satellite Broadcasting, DIRECTV was the name of the first high power, direct broadcast satellite system.
Over the decades, it evolved into the nationwide, digital satellite network of smaller, 18-inch satellite dishes that deliver crystal clear HD content to televisions across the country that we know today. DIRECTV grew beyond its beginnings to become a standalone satellite television provider in 2004 and began offering up to 100 high definition channels in 2007. Today, DIRECTV stands tall among television provider giants. It was ranked first in customer satisfaction in 2014, according to the 2014 American Customer Satisfaction Index, and has outranked cable television providers in customer satisfaction ever since.
Like its predecessors, DIRECTV is always looking forward to the trends of the future and was one of the first television providers to offer its customers High Definition content. It currently offers over 200 channels in HD. Staying true to its visionary roots, DIRECTV is now offering content in 4K Ultra HD, making it one of the first onto the panoramic field. Indeed, it has even built a digital video recording service to go along with it!
In addition to the stunning clarity of its channel lineup, DIRECTV also features Dolby Digital 5.1 sound, so you really will feel like you are sitting in a movie theater. Worried about the service going out in bad weather? Satellite technology has come a long way in the last couple of decades, and DIRECTV customers have noticed. 99.9% of DIRECTV customers report having a reliable and consistent signal, so don’t worry about your service going out in the rain or the snow outside finding its way onto your television screen!
