These channels are simply not available through any other service provider or type of service other than Dish Network satellite. With the current world economy in a dismal state people do not have the disposable income they once did to spend on less than essential items such as concert tickets. Watching a concert on tv saves quite a bit of money and the state of health of a person’s eardrums, not to mention to undeniable superiority in comfort of a couch over a lawn or plastic arena chair. Experiencing a concert from home may not provide the option of partaking in a massive mosh pit, but it offers an equal if not better experience of the music and perhaps a little more personal safety. Now instead of being restricted to wearing out the songs and DVDs of their favorite band, people can still experience the concerts of their favorite performers through DIRECTV Specials. Viewing a concert from home allows fans to get a closer look than any reasonably priced ticket ever could and high definition will make it seem as if their favorite singer is a mere arm’s length away.
