By: David Johnson

DirecTV has only one exclusive brand of satellite TV systemsand components that they carry and that name is Hughes. Hughes is name brandtop of the line satellite systems and components and this is just one of themany things that separate DirecTV from all of the other TV programming serviceproviders.

?While other serviceprovider have chosen to provide their customers with the cheapest satellitesystems that they could obtain in mass from overseas manufacturers, DirecTV haschosen to go with the well recognized Hughes reputation for quality andreliability. Every satellite TV programming service provider is going to giveyou a free satellite system when you sign on to an extended programming agreementnow and the satellite TV system is yours to keep and own, just the same as ifyou had bought it.

?This might seem likea fantastic deal on the surface, but if it is cheap electronics equipment thatis prone to malfunction, then it not such a great deal after all. Once thelimited warranty wears off then it is your baby to repair or replace and if youdo neither, then you are stuck paying for a programming package that you can’twatch.

Going with the recognized Hughes name assures you that yoursystem and receiver or receivers are going to be there for you for years tocome. DirecTV’s base model no frills receiver that comes with their entry levelprogramming package is called the Hughes Director. It is a high quality Hughesreceiver, but it doesn’t have all the features that come on other Hughesreceivers that DirecTV carries.

If you have an entry level programming package, you won’tneed the custom menu feature or the programming search feature as well. Oneother feature option that the Hughes Director doesn’t have is DVR but you canget that on the next level up in Hughes receivers and there is no servicecharge for upgrading you receiver at any time.

The Hughes Executive model receiver is the next level up andit is equipped to handle programming packages with hundreds of channel options.The Executive model receiver comes loaded with great features and also has theoption of Standard DVR or DVR Powered by TiVo. With DVR Powered by TiVoBusiness Management Articles,instant slow motion replays are right at your finger tips. This is a fantasticfeature for sports enthusiasts and TV also allows you to zip right past anyannoying commercials that come on during your games.

?With TiVo you alsocan stop any game or program and then restart it right where it left off whenyou return to your TV. The DVR in the Executive model receiver holds a fullone-hundred hours of recording time and that adds up to be well over four soliddays

?DirecTV givesyou the choice of two high definition Hughes receivers. One of them is a basicmodel just like the Hughes Director only its high definition.
