Today satellite dishes proliferate the rooftops of homes and businesses in Saudi Arabia. Saudi families can have satellite tv offering thousands of channels in just a few short hours.
What is nice about satellite tv in Saudi Arabia as compared to say the United States is that it is so easy and simple to get connected and start viewing.
All a Saudi needs to do is purchase the dish and receiver and then have a technician install the dish. The smarter and craftier the technician the more channels a family will receive. Better yet, once the installation is complete there are no monthly payments to worry about. Unless, of course, one decides to subscribe to a service which provides premium channels.
Whereas in the United States a family generally has to choose between either cable or satellite services. Once the decision is made and installation complete, then monthly fees must be paid. Additionally the rates increase substantially each year for the same service.
I’m actually doing some shopping right now on what services I want and choose to retain. My cable bill was increased by 50 per cent this past month. Yet at the same time the cable company is attempting to gain new subscribers offering massive discount rates. When I called to negotiate there was no room for negotiation. The cable company (Time Warner Cable) would rather lose an existing customer.
It makes me miss the ease and budget friendliness of getting services in Saudi Arabia!
