2 WHERE WOULD WE BE WITHOUT TELEVISION? Rachel Dixon Senior PackagesCompared Consulant Entertainment is now an essential part of modern life and fortunately it is easily accessible throughout our homes. Regardless of if you are moving house, switching provider, want more content, or just want to pay less, choosing a provider can be time consuming. The only difficulty with getting TV in your house is deciding which provider and what type of network will give you what you need for the right price. Looking through each and every TV option available can be a pain, especially if you do not know what to look for. WHAT S ON The most important thing that must be included in your TV package are the channels that are available and whether they will supply you with the latest sports, TV series, documentaries, movies, reality TV and more. There is no point in paying for television you are not going to watch. Look at what are on offer to see if they include your favourite programmes or you look at the reviews for guidance. SPORTS, SPORTS, SPORTS Having access to sports is a must-have for any sports fanatic, but some networks will focus on different sports channels. Look to see if the network covers your favourite sports or if you can gain access to sporting events through pay-per-view. CABLE TV Cable works using a network of underground coaxial cables to transmit tv programme information to your home. Different companies supply channels to different areas and, therefore, your choice may be limited to local or regional providers. QUALITY The innovators among need to have the newest in technology. TV providers can now offer HD, 4K and even 3D programmes across their network. If you want the highest quality, make sure your provider can offer what you want. Networks can also offer TV coverage with a DVR, Digital Video Recorder, that allows you to record live TV and rewatch it at a time that suits you. SATELLITE TV Involves beaming a TV signal through a network of satellites to a small dish installed on or outside your home. This is a great option if cable is or the channels you want are not available in your location. Satellite TV can transmit service virtually anywhere in the country and can still benefit remote or rural locations. FIBER OPTIC TV Fiber Optic Cables, are cables that use hair-thin glass wires that allow TV signals to be transmitted to your location through light. As it involves a physical network of wiring, the offers and availability of TV providers will be limited by your location. Fiber Optic TV offers network coverage with less interference at a higher speed.

3 TOP 5 CABLE TV AND INTERNET PROVIDERS There are so many internet and TV options to choose from these days and it is difficult to make a good decision without first-hand experience. Here are the top 5 packages that come strongly recommended with high scores in quality of service and customer support.

4 HOW TO GET A GREAT TV DEAL Getting tied into monthly TV packages for channels that you don t need or don t watch can be an unnecessary expense that is now completely avoidable. We all like having something to watch when we get home from work or at the weekend, but paying too much for it can be a pain. Here are some quick tips and tricks to make sure you get the best deal from your TV provider.» Do Your Research Knowing which TV deals are available is the first step to getting a deal that suits you. There are almost too many options when it comes to TV providers, depending on whether you want satellite, cable or internet TV. There is a basic package that TV providers do not regularly advertise as their cheapest TV package because it is required and price controlled by government regulations. This option will give you the cheapest TV package, and will only offer public service channels, broadcast channels and local channels, but some providers may include some other low-cost channels within their basic package. Basic and standard packages will change depending on where you are and the provider you are using, but knowing the legislation regarding television providers will help you direct your questions.» Know What You Want Being specific about the level of TV coverage you are after will avoid you paying monthly bills for unnecessary channels. How many channels do you want? Do you watch sports? Do you have children? The sales team will always try to sell you more so if you know what you want before you make contact with them, it will be easier for you to get the package you want. Try to be as specific as possible, TV providers are, generally, very flexible on what channels they can and cannot offer you.» Are Your Eyes Bigger than Your...Eyes? Keep in mind, there is only so much free time you will have and only so much television you can watch. Having lots of channels is great, but paying for so many you can t watch is wasteful so don t think you need everything on offer. You can always upgrade your TV package if you find that you do not have enough to watch, but downgrading can sometimes be problematic. If your provider offers you a free trial of a premium package, take it and find out which channels you actually watch then find a smaller package that includes all or most of the programmes you like to watch. Don t get swayed to buy a whole channel because of one TV series you like, there are other cheaper ways you can watch TV. You may end up paying an extra $10 per month for an hour of TV a week that is only on for half the year. Another note, be aware of long-term packages, check if you can unsubscribe or alter your TV package when you need to.» Talk to Your Provider Calling and talking to the support team of your provider can be an untapped resource for a lot of subscribers. The support team can provide you with much more information than the website because you can ask specific questions, get more flexibility and negotiate on the phone. Negotiation is the key, if you mention that other providers are offering better deals elsewhere and you are thinking of switching, they may offer you a discounted rate to keep your subscription.

5 WAYS TO EXTEND YOUR WIFI Turn Sockets into Access Points This is a great method to double or even triple your WiFi strength. You can turn spare electrical sockets into access points by inserting an adapter and connecting it to the router to boost your wireless range. Adapters are generally inexpensive but the signal strength that is produced may not be as reliable as the original one. Install a High-Gain Antenna Most wireless routers come with standard antenna that can disperse the signal evenly around the router. A high-gain antenna not only improves the signal strength but will also allow you to point the signal in a particular direction. This is ideal if your home is an irregular shape or you need Wi-Fi in a particular area. Use the Latest in Wireless Technology Wireless technology is constantly improving as engineers and technitions innovate, keeping your wireless hardware up-to-date is one way to ensure that your connection is as fast and dependable as possible. Add More Access Points Another way to increase access points but this is more reliable and more complex method of boosting your signal strength and range. You can do this by running ethernet cables from the router to the access point and if more reliable but can be difficult to install the wiring. Putting it in the Right Place Finding the right spot for your wireless router can make all the difference when it comes to having a strong and stable connection. First of all, make sure the router is in the center of your home or office to cover a higher area of your home. Secondly, try and place the router with the antenna straight and as high as possible to increase the strength of the signal. Add More Access Points Another way to increase access points but this is more reliable and more complex method of boosting your signal strength and range. You can do this by running ethernet cables from the router to the access point and if more reliable but can be difficult to install the wiring.
