The Difference Between Local Independent and Big Box Satellite Companies

Satellite TV cuts out in bad weather, right?

Not if installed properly. "Satellite dishes installed firmly to your roof, chimney, or wall and anchored with support rarely have signal issues." says SatHookup Man , spokesperson for the the SatHookup Network, a group of local, independent satellite tv installers with over 600 service locations in the US.

That sounds pretty easy - but why do we hear all these horror stories of bad Dish Network and Directv installs? The main determining factor in a good satellite install that will stand the test of time is who actually installed it.

Local, Independent Satellite Installation:

Big Box, Discount Installation:

As you can see, the first satellite dish is installed properly and does not move at all in the wind while the second dish, installed by the actual service provider (Dish Network) wobbles at the slightest breeze.

How can this be? Big businesses need big numbers to survive - with insurance, management, employee theft, corporate jets - leaving little money to pay the installers. The local satellite installation company is small and agile, many times a sole proprietorship. All the money goes to your neighbor and their family, and, in time, directly back into your community.

There is more incentive for the local guy to provide excellent service compared to the wage slave for the big company when you're install 1 of 4 for that day.

Houston Texans NFL - Emergency Satellite Repair WIN

Late Saturday afternoon we received a frantic call from NFL's Houston Texans. Their locker room Directv system had been down and 2 other repair companies have already been out and have not been able to fix the problem.

The Texans were playing the Giants the next day at noon and to have a broken Directv TV system was not an option. Luckily, they chose the SatHookup Network for emergency Directv Repair.

Within two hours we were able to send out Gilbert from Cypress Wireless in Houston, TX to the job site with a fully stocked truck ready for work. Turns out, it was a quick fix that took about 20 minutes, but something two other "Pros" were not able to figure out in their previous service calls.

In satellite tv, just like football, there are no excuses. You either walk with a W or an L.

Get a Win by finding a local, independent satellite installer for Texas Satellite TV Installation with SatHookup.
