We are a homeschooling family and we own a satellite sales and installation company called Goodnight Satellite. I'd like to share two services we sell that are relevant to homeschooling families.
First, high speed internet! We offer WildBlue high speed satellite internet which is perfect for those of you living in rural areas. Satellite internet is much faster than dial up and is a great choice when you don't have access to a high speed cable or dsl line.
The other service we offer is DISH Network satellite television. A package I think would be well suited to many homeschooling families is called "Dish Family". First, it is super cheap... only $19.99 per month! And you get many of the interesting and high quality channels, like the History Channel and Animal Planet, that are usually only available in the higher tier, more expensive packages. DISH is also providing free DVRs, which are wonderful for recording those great shows and watching them when they fit into YOUR schedule. The thing I really like about Dish Family is that you get only decent, family friendly channels and don't have to deal with any of the muck that is out there like MTV and such. Dish also offers great parental controls... so you can limit viewing times, certain ratings, certain channels, etc.
You can visit our website, http://www.goodnightsatellite.net/
, to get more information. You can also call me for more information. My cell phone number is 288-9665. Please, if you are considering purchasing either of those services, call us and support another homeschooling family!
And one last thing... if you want to make a little extra money, we pay $50 for referrals!
