Satellite TV And New Developments

Sep 11, 2008
Satellite TV is a term used to describe a wireless system which delivers television programming directly to your house. This is done with the help of a small dish, which is installed outside the house and measures about 18 to 24 inches in terms of diameter. Via a radio signal, TV and satellite stations send programming which the viewers then watch through their TV sets.

A powerful antenna is used by broadcast stations in order to send radio waves around the area, and a smaller antenna is used by viewers to receive the signal. The radio signals used to transmit television programming send signals from the broadcast antenna in a straight line. Thus, the satellite dish must be in direct line with the antenna in order to receive these signals. Small obstacles are insignificant in this regard; houses or trees will pose no problem for the signal to pass through. However, a huge obstacle, such as the Earth, will reflect the radio waves.

Satellite TV is better than cable TV because it offers much more options, up to three hundred channels, and the viewer can pick what company he or she wants to subscribe to and the package of channels to get. Cable systems force the viewer to watch whatever is offered in the region at whatever price it is offered in. That way, satellite TV is preferred over cable TV.

There are two main types of satellite TV distributions: DBS or Direct Broadcast Satellite and Television Receive Only or TVRO. DBS is also known as direct to home and a mini dish is used for this. It uses the upper part of the KU-band. TVRO is primarily based up on open standards equipment, unlike DBS which is a completely closed system. TVRO is named big dish satellite TV.

Satellite TV was a huge development because it offered so many better options than cable TV and there were so many more channels to watch. With more and more technological advances happening everyday, it is now possible to watch satellite TV online. Although satellite TV is preferred over cable TV, the same argument can be made for internet TV over satellite TV, but at the end it is the consumer's choice to make.

Internet TV offers instant access to over three thousand channels and works worldwide on all versions of windows. Unlimited TV is available on your PC for life for a very low price as compared to the monthly hassles involved in paying for other kinds of TV. Unlimited access to movies, music and TV shows is available, and no ad ware, virus or spy ware will infect your computer from using Internet TV.

At one time TV came in and created a revolution, and then advanced versions kept developing till we reached satellite TV. In today's day and age everyone is online, and new leaps have been made in technology that has made TV viewing on the Internet possible. It looks as if the time for another development is under way.
