I Like to Watch Sports Programs

Writing No Comment

My wife and kids love to watch just about anything on TV, but I am a bit more selective. I do watch a good bit of programming myself, but the majority of what I watch is sports and news. That is why when the wife and kids told me they wanted to get satellite TV, I had to check something out before agreeing to it. I wanted to make sure that I would be able to get sports with Direct TV. I already knew that I would be able to get news, as any TV provider has plenty of TV news channels.

However, I needed to make sure that I would still be able to watch hockey, baseball and football. I have favorite teams, mostly local ones, so I had to make sure I would be able to get sports channels as well as my local channels so I would be able to watch any local programming that had to do with one of the teams. I was happy to see that I would be able to get all of my sports programming that I had been watching up to this point, but the good news did not end there.

When I was looking online at the different packages, I saw that I would actually be able to get more channels than what I had been getting with the cable package we had. The best part of all, for me, was getting the NFL Sunday Ticket. The NFL does not allow every area to show whatever game they fancy. Because of the strict rules, I had to watch games I really wasn’t into because it was my only choice. Now, I am able to watch any NFL game that I want to see, and that feels like paradise to me. Oh, the wife and kids like their programming too!

Feeling Safe in the Big City

Writing No Comment

I was born and raised in a very small town. The population was less than 1,000 people, and there were only 59 kids who graduated with me in my high school class. Going from a town like that to Los Angeles can be a pretty scary move, but it was one that had to be done if I wanted to have my dream job. I was able to find a nice house for my wife and I, but I still was not used to living in the city. That is why I searched for ADT in Los Angeles within just a few weeks of living there.

I was not used to hearing sirens all of the time, nor was I used to seeing so much crime when I watched the evening news every night. I felt that I had chosen a good neighborhood to live in, but I knew that I was going to get as much protection as I could. When I was reading about ADT, I read some statistics that stated that people with security systems are no hit often like those without the systems. That actually makes perfect sense to me because a criminal is going to want the easiest hits, which is not a house with a state of the art security system.

I was able to get all the information I needed from their website, and the person I talked to on the phone when I ordered the installation was extremely helpful as well. A technician came out that same week and hooked up a security system for us. Every door and window is now protected, and we definitely feel a lot better knowing that we have this safety feature. I am getting more used to life in the city, and it is even starting to feel like home to me now.
