Is There a New Industry Trend Emerging?
When someone is looking to upgrade the technology within their homes, most people consider two things:how can we upgrade to the latest form of television experience and how can we best secure our home to make sure we are protected? These two things can now be answered at the same time, seeing as some cable and satellite dish providers are starting to merge with home security companies. One of the most prominent names now entering into this type of merger is DIRECTV. DIRECTV will now start including different package options from LifeShield. LifeShield is a company that offers products and services very similar to Virtual Guard (virutalguards.net). These package options will be included in their service to customers who install a DIRECTV satellite. Will this emerge as an industry trend, or is it simply a pilot test by DIRECTV to gain consumer recognition in the marketplace?
