A true fanatic would rather watch the 1973 Super Bowl on one of the random ESPN channels, rather than watch any new CSI or Mad Men. He also knows that the only part of the news worth watching is the last five minutes for the update on the local athletic teams. In order to have access to sporting events 24 hours a day, every day of the year, one must have satellite TV.With cable, there is only enough programming for the amateur sports fan. Satellite, on the other hand, offers five or more ESPNs, the Big Ten Network, CBS College Sports and the Tennis Channel. All the major leagues also have their own channel. If mainstream isn’t your thing, try the Outdoor Channel, the Sportsman Channel or Speed. Not to mention you still get all those channels that cable offers: TNT, TBS, USA, the Golf Channel, Fox Sports, etc. Not to mention that you can also watch the major sporting events on the broadcast networks, such as the Olympics or the NBA Finals.If that’s not enough for you, how do seven or eight HBOs sound? Of course, you can catch athletic-related movies on those channels, but there is another offering from HBO that a true fan cannot miss out on. Since 1995, a show has aired that goes behind the scenes and reports on things that happen outside of the arena. The show also features in-depth interviews and focuses on content that broadcast networks may not cover. It has garnered over 15 Emmys. Of course, we are talking about none other than Bryant Gumbel’s Real Sports.Another great feature provided by satellite is the XM satellite radio programming. If for some reason you can’t find a game on TV, you may be able to catch it on one of the radio channels. You can also tune into the talk stations and listen to the analysts chat it up while you are doing something around the house.If you think that you are the master of trivia and statistics, try your luck playing along with Stump the Schwab reruns on ESPN Classic. The true fanatic is filled to the brim with information on games and players. If you can’t get but a few questions right, then it’s time for you to sit down and soak in some more games immediately.In addition to ESPN Classic, you’ll find that all the other sports channels mentioned above will turn every day into game day. There are so many channels that you should never miss your favorite team or player’s match. If you happen to crave the pigskin all day on Sundays, the NFL Sunday Ticket is just the thing for you. It offers more NFL games than any other service available on the market. All 17 weeks of the season are filled with more games than you can imagine. Other packages are available for the other leagues, but this one is an absolute must-have for any football fan.As you can see, there’s a lot that you have been missing out on all these years with cable TV. Isn’t it about time you made your inner fan truly happy again? Stop depriving it of non-stop, around the clock sports action. Satellite can be hooked up and installed before tomorrow night’s game.
