Have you been a victim of the recent storms that have hit the United States? These storms and many other catastrophes cause satellite TV subscribers headaches beyond those of your typical cable user. When the cable goes out, everyone goes out and the cable company pays attention because of the sheer number of subscribers without service. However, with satellite TV, it is often a single home at a time. If you need repairs to your satellite TV, here are a few places to start.
First, identify the problem. Most problems with satellite TV are covered by your subscription agreement and should be repaired for no cost. Contact your satellite provider to check on whether your problem is covered, or, if you are having trouble identifying the problem, if they can send someone out for a free inspection. Should you determine that your provider will not be covering the repairs that you need, don't worry.
In your area there are probably dozens of professional repair people who specialize in satellite TV systems. Grab your yellow pages and look around for a good estimate on your repairs. These should always come with a free quote first. In no time, you can put the storms behind you and get back to the great programming on your satellite TV system.
