DirecTV is a popular home satellite television service offering more than 160 high definition channels. In addition, DirecTV also offers 3D television, interactive channels, and the ability to record shows using a DVR. One of the most important pieces of equipment needed to run your DirecTV service is the satellite dish. The satellite dish is placed outside of your house, where it can pick up satellite signals.
