Satellite TV Has Come A Long Way And Now Leads The pack

Nov 28, 2007
Satellite television service has come a long way since it was first introduced to the entertainment industry so many years ago. While it used to be a hassle to have it installed, expensive once it was, and inconvenient both to use and get rid of, none of these things are true in this day and age.

These days, satellite service for the televisions in your home is inexpensive to have installed (installation is often free), inexpensive to have ongoing service, and has a gentle learning curve for those of us who are used to having cable.

Remember those huge satellite dishes that had to be installed in the backyard? Gone are those days and now, the satellite can be about twice the size of a dinner plate (if that large) and can be mounted discreetly on the side of the house or on the roof.

The only thing that you might have to worry about with satellite service is it going out during precipitation or very cloudy days, but even cable service goes out during storms from time to time.

Your satellite service is also able to offer you a large number of channels, many more so than your local cable provider is able to offer you. While having more channels will definitely cost you more money, introductory packages are often loaded with all the basic channels that a family would want to watch.

Pay per view programming can also be purchased and the great thing about this is when a movie that has just been released to the theaters becomes available. You can stay home and watch that movie you have been waiting on to come out for months instead of going to a crowded theater.

Satellite has also become much more convenient to use in homes that have more than one or two people in them. If you have 4 or 5 people living in a household, it is extremely unlikely that you will all want to watch the same thing.

Back when satellite was first introduced, only one channel was available at a time, no matter how many TV's were connected to it. These days it is possible to watch almost as many channels at one time as you have televisions, usually up to 6.

Some satellite services even have game channels where you can play games with other satellite subscribers or you can just play against the system. These games cost money, of course, but if you are bored and looking for something to do, they are a great source of entertainment.

The practicality of satellite television service has grown and has become much less expensive over the years.
