10 Tips For Finding The Best Deals For Satellite TV

Nov 28th 2012 at 8:12 PM

When it comes time to move, or at least time to start plans to move, odds are you'll be looking for the best deals on satellite TV. Even if you have purchased satellite TV previously, some of these tips could be useful to you as well.

1. When you are comparing satellite television providers, do not just look at the price. It is important to remember that you also need to take into account the quality of their technology, reliability, ease of use and the contracts being offered.

2. Find out about the various providers available in the area. You'll want to make sure you take a look at each satellite company in your area so you make sure you're getting the most value for your dollar.

3. Check online for special satellite TV promotions. Many times, there are special satellite TV promotions offered on flyers, in your mail and emails. However, most of the time, the best deals on satellite TV are found online.

4. Prior to comparing providers, write down the channels you watch frequently. Keep in mind what channels you watch consistently versus which ones you may only watch a few times a year. If you only watch the classics during the holidays, consider just renting a few of the classic holiday movies you love, instead of paying all year long.

5. Choose the smallest package that will make you happy. Even though those super huge programming package promotions are extremely tempting, don't forget that promotional pricing does end and the price you pay will change. Once the satellite TV promotions are over, the rates increase. Keep in mind you can add channels and packages later if you want.

6. Make a list of questions and then ask them before you order. While on the phone with the sales representative, you will have the opportunity to ask questions about their service. Make sure you write down all of your questions beforehand so you won't forget to ask things like if local channels are included with the package you're looking at. Make sure you have a pen and paper to jot down their answers.

7. The technological aspects of the company are very important. You want to make sure the company you go with can support watching TV from different rooms and handle different things at the same time. Otherwise, you may end up watching cartoons all day long, when you would rather be learning about your next DIY project.

8. Find out how easy their equipment it is to work with and what special options are available. Do they offer you the ability to:

• pause live television?

• set-up automatic timers to tape your favorite programs

• watch a taped program, while recording another?

9. The quality of the television you will receive is important. If you've got high definition television with Dolby surround sound, you definitely want to be able to take advantage of that quality. The quality of the technology you are using from the satellite company, will affect your viewing experience.

10. If possible, choose Autopay. When you sign up, you'll probably be offered the ability to have your bill paid automatically each monty with a discount offered as incentive. This also eliminates late payments, as well as other potential billing issues. The only negative to this option is that you have to keep your pay-per-view password to yourself. Otherwise, you may not realize there were unapproved purchases paid for.

Taking advantage of these 10 tips, you'll be able to find the best deals on satellite TV regardless of where you move.
