Every year at our family Thanksgiving table there is always one hot topic that we seem to talk about for an hour or so. I had no idea what I wanted to talk about this year, so I let my family just take a natural progression with the conversation. My brother started to talk about how much his cable TV was and how hard it was to pay the bill every single month. I talked to him about how he had to get direct tv because he was going to save a lot of money and that he was going to like the services that they provided. I was excited when he told me that he was going to but that he did not want to sign a two year contract with them. I told him that if he called and gave them my account number that he would be able to save money each month and I would be able to get to save money each month, about ten dollars per month to be exact.
He could not speak with someone right away when he called because it was a holiday but I could not believe that he called right from the dinner table on this very family oriented holiday. My brother was going to school as he just retired from the Army after twenty years and he was trying to save as much money as he could with his family costs. He has two kids that always seem to need something so he wanted to see if he could save even more money with the TV services that we were talking about. My grand parents said that they just used the antenna for free to get the HD stations that were available to them, we all thought that was cost effective.
