That's because with this service you actually get access to all the same channels, but you pay a lot less for the privilege. In fact, it can come to you for as low as $40 which is a heck of a lot less than most people's cable bills.
You're also going to discover that through Satellite Direct, you get access to tons of international channels as well. That includes original programming as it airs in other countries.
You won't find that on normal satellite TV, and it's especially not available on cable. But it's a service that comes to you at no extra charge with a subscription here, and it will still cost you less than normal subscriptions.
How much do you pay for cable? Usually you find that satellite TV is cheaper. But even that can be hundreds of dollars per month no matter what your package is including.
You get tons of channels from Australia, as well as the UK, so that you can watch international first run programming. That means shows before they hit the States, in their original versions as well.
Through this service, you're going to get all the channels that you stand to lose if you step away from having a subscription to satellite, but you're really not going to lose anything at all.
You still get all the sports that you want, or just all the entertainment channels that you want too, but without having to pay the obnoxious price that you would have to pay for other alternatives.
