If you are a true sports fan, then you know that watching one game a week or one match a week isn’t going to cut it for you. You want to get in on all the sports action that you can and you want your satellite provider to help you accomplish that. Whether you are a football fan or a basketball or a fan of it all, you want to get the most out of your sports program packages.
Premium sports programming is better with a satellite provider versus a cable provider, but which satellite should you go with? Well, that depends on your preference, but there seems to be one shining star in that field and that’s the leader in satellite TV. The value player does offer packages in football, soccer, basketball and hockey. Unfortunately, that’s about it and the packages are fairly basic.
Now let’s take a look at what the satellite leader offers. Of course, they offer packages in the same sports as the value player. But they take that so much further. First and foremost is the fact that the value player no longer carries out of market baseball games any longer. This means that the leader is the only satellite provider offering MLB Extra Innings, the premium package that allows customers to watch hundreds of baseball games each season, rather than just the ones that are aired on local networks.
Outside of baseball, the leader surpasses the competition in the other sports categories. Let’s take football. According to the value player website, they don’t even offer a NFL package, only a package for college football. With the leader you can get NFL Sunday Ticket, where you can watch up to 14 games a day! With NFL Sunday Ticket, you can also get NFL Supercast. This amazing feature allows you take your game wherever you need to go. With Supercast you can watch the game from anywhere in the world with a PC and Internet connection.
Both providers seem to offer the same as far basketball goes, both in the NBA and in the college categories. They are on the same level with hockey, both offering NHL Center Ice. At first glance, they both also seem the same in soccer, offering MLS Direct Kick. But again, the leader takes it a step further and also offers Setanta Sports, which is a full schedule of European soccer and Rugby. The leader offers Cricket Ticket, a full season of cricket matches from all over the world. The other company doesn’t offer cricket at all.
If you are a Nascar fan, then the leading provider is definitely your choice. With Nascar Hot Pass subscribers can feel like they are part of the crew, down in the pit and behind the wheel. You can listen in on the driver’s channels, to hear what they are saying and what they are feeling during the race. While customers can get Nascar Hot Pass in regular definition, as of 2008, those that want to watch the race in the amazing beauty that is high definition can choose to do so.
