Cable TV providers offer more than just cable TV programming. They also offer several viewing features that can be enjoyed with the programming package. These features add hours of entertainment, with digital quality and services that contribute to the value of the home entertainment package.
Cable TV providers can offer digital services like digital and HD channels, a DVR, or digital video recorder that provides up to 60 hours of storage room for digital programming or up to 45 hours of HD programming. The DVR can be preset to record programming that families do not want to miss while they are still at work or running errands. The DVR is also convenient for use with On Demand and Pay Per View features, allowing subscribers to rewind, fast forward and pause the programming found on these menus. The DVR can help make instant replays, fast forward through commercials or pause to run an errand or get a snack. It works for prerecorded programming and for live events.
The Video on Demand and Pay Per View selections include newly released movies, network programming, children’s shows and live boxing and wrestling matches. You can order some of the hottest new movies and some of the new show episodes if you missed them on TV all with a push of a button. The Video on Demand and Pay Per View selections also lets you save the movie or TV show for up to two days so you can go back and watch all those great shows without having to order them over and over again.
Cable TV providers also allow concerned parents to breath easier with the Parental Controls they offer. These Parental Controls can be used to block programming or entire channels, all depending on the comfort level of the adults in the house. The Parental Controls can also be used to block channels or programming for specified periods of time, like when the parents are going to be away or asleep, or the programming and channels can be blocked indefinitely. These Controls can be used for the programming found on regular channels and the programming stored on the DVR.
Another valuable service that cable TV providers offer is the digital phone service, with the unlimited local and long distance calling in the United States and Canada. These services allow families to save time and money, by paying the same rate every month, no matter how many calls are made. Cable TV providers also give their customers calling features. These features, up to twelve in all, include call forwarding, call waiting, three way calling and call return, among others.
Cable TV providers can also offer these great services in one low monthly bundle to help save time and money when the bill comes due. Families can get three great services in one package, through one proven provider, for one rate that does not change from month to month.
Cable TV providers offer quality products and services the entire family can enjoy, providing reliable, family-friendly services the whole family can benefit from.
