What Is A Satellite TV Provider?

Aug 17, 2007
When you receive satellite TV the signal must come from somewhere. But where? It comes from satellite dishes rotating the earth that companies and other people paid for to put up there for you to watch these shows regardless of where you live. The people that provide you with these channels and movies are called satellite TV service providers. These men and women work day and night to bring you high quality analog and digital cable and only ask for a small amount of money in return.

In the next few minutes you will have learned what a satellite service provider is and isn't and how that moving picture gets to your television screen.

What does a satellite TV provider do?

A satellite TV provider, as a person, runs a network in which their main purpose is to bring you a high quality broadcasted show or movie to your living room without you having to be in Mexico where they filmed it at. These men and women bring to you what you think the shows bring to you. Entertainment. And I believe these people need more credit because there job isn't so easy.

A satellite TV provider as a whole is the business in whole. It's all the people involved in bringing you the entertainment you so enjoy on your Friday nights, right before your weekend starts. These services provide the general cable to your TV. Like basic, basic extended, cable, or HDTV. They broadcast the signal from there building to a satellite up in the sky that then broadcasts it to the whole world or its designated locations.

Why do satellite TV providers charge so much?

When the first satellites were placed in the air it was a lot of money. It still costs a lot to develop, build, and launch one of these babies into orbit in space. The monthly charge you get charged with every month is to help pay for the costs of employees and the cost of having a satellite in orbit. These things can run a bit costly at some times and that is why channel packages can be more expensive to buy. The more people that buy these channels the less it will cost. This is because more people will be paying the price for the satellite in space and so they can drop the price as more people start becoming subscribers.
