Satellite TV used to be considered a luxury just a few years ago. Cheap satellite TV was just a fantasy. The prices of a system with a satellite TV dish and electronic boxes ranged from $2,000 to $10,000. The installation cost was another few hundreds dollars.

With so many TV satellite companies competing for getting more customers, cheap satellite TV has become a reality, and guess what, the installation is generally free.

Here are the things you can usually get from a satellite TV company:

- A free satellite TV dish, as well as mounting stand
- Several free receivers and universal remote controls
- Free installation in several rooms
- Free digital video recording receivers to record your favorite shows
- Optional HDTV receivers for high definition reception.

In addition, some cheap satellite TV providers also offer a bonus gift, such as a DVD player and home theater system when you subscribe.
