Satellite TV - "Why All the Fuss?"

July 03, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 194

What is Satellite TV?

It's very simple, satellite TV is an industry that provides cable channels over a stand-alone system known as (DBS) Direct Broadcast Satellite. This system works anywhere in the United States as long as there is a clear view of the southern sky. The system is independent and doesn't rely on other components around the home other than electricity.

A satellite dish is setup outside of the home. Coaxial cable is then connected directly to the dish antenna and ran throughout the home to the satellite receiver set-top boxes. The number of set-top boxes will vary by the desired number of room s needed in the home. Generally, new accounts receive a discount on up to six rooms.

Who offers Satellite TV? DIRECTV and DISH Network are the two major providers in the United States. Both companies deliver high definition, digital video recording, whole-home viewing, and remote access with viewing.

Why Satellite TV? Many people go with Satellite providers because they offer more channels than cable. Satellite companies are generally cheaper when compared to the Cable companies. Programming packages are provided on a national basis, so prices don't vary from state-to-state like cable.

A Few Advantages to Satellite TV

Advantage #1 - Satellite is a self-reliant system that never relies on the cable next door or the neighborhood network for service. Advantage #2 - Unlike cable packages prices are offered on a nationwide basis. This gives the provider leverage to offer cheaper programming channels. Advantage #3- Award winning customer satisfaction surpassed cable over a decade ago.

How Satellite TV Works? Media companies from all over the world provide content to these providers. Content is submitted to the provider. Then programming is uploaded onto the high-powered satellite in outer space. The channels are then transmitted and coded then sent down to earth. The signal is captured by the small satellite dish set up outside of the home. Each company provides a receiver to decode the programming for viewing on the television. Channel viewing is based upon the channel subscription.

Does Satellite carry local stations? Each company carries local channels throughout the continent. If you live in a major city chances are you're covered. DISH has local channels available to 100% of the population.

Is Satellite TV the right choice for you? Chances are you'll try satellite at least once in your lifetime. Both companies have programs that allow customers to lease equipment in exchange for a commitment to service. There's a program for everyone regardless of credit criteria.
