One day my wife came in from picking up our kids at her sister's house and wanted to know why we didn't have Internet service through our Direct TV subscription. She said her sister had just gotten it and loved it. I didn't want to tell her I didn't know Direct TV even offered Internet access. She looks up to me and thinks I know everything there is to know about any topic she has questions about. So I let her think it. (Hey, who's it hurting?) I told her I hadn't gotten around to finding the best deal yet, but I'd look into it.Several days later I finally took a few minutes and poked around online, looking for information on Internet service from Direct TV. I did a MASSIVE amount of searching, wading through a bunch of nonsense, and came away with three and only three sites that are worth your time. I decided to bookmark those to come back to later when I had more time. I've listed them below so you can check them out for yourself. Anyway, a few more days went by, and my sister-in-law calls the house and wants to know if we've gotten Direct TV Internet service yet. Well, all that did was stir up my wife to nag me about why I hadn't done what I said I'd do. So back to the computer I went.This time I was a bit more careful and took my time looking over first one site then another, but I just ended up going back to the same three sites I had bookmarked earlier. (Remember, the links to them are at the end of this story). I found all kinds of information I needed to make a smart decision about Direct TV's Internet services.Seems it doesn't matter where you live, they're able to get the Internet to you, whether it's through your existing phone lines or via satellite. I even ran across an article in one of my searches that says Direct TV will be offering Internet access through your power lines, and that's going to be totally sweet when it gets rolled out nationally.And Direct TV is partnered with several well-known companies in the communications industry in order to provide Internet access to you, no matter where your house is. Heavy hitters like AT&T, Verizon, Wildblue and others I'm sure you're familiar with.According to the sites I've referenced below, there are times when you can find substantial savings when you bundle your Direct TV and Internet access together. The promotions vary, which is why it's important to order through a site that stays current like the ones below.Anyway, we finally got it and the wife's happy...for now. And I have to admit, I am too. Internet access through Direct TV is light years faster than our old dial-up. Looking back, I can't believe I waited so long. Fortunately, you don't have to. All you have to do is click the links below and you can find the best deals running right now on Direct TV's Internet services. It costs nothing to click, and who knows, it might save you a bundle.When it comes to getting the best deal on Direct TV's Internet service, here are the only three sites I found that you need to check out. The first one I'd recommend is this Direct TV Internet article at DigitalTVDojo (these guys really do it right!). You should also take a few minutes and check out the Direct TV Internet page on Squidoo, and this Direct TV Internet article on Hubpages. You'll be glad you did.
