Cable TV, Satellite TV And The New Contendor Internet TV

Feb 25, 2008
Cable TV is the name given to a system which gives television to viewers through radio frequency signals transferred through fixed optical fibers or underground cables to television sets in peoples homes. Cable T-V is very similar to terrestrial TV. The only important exception is the fact that in terrestrial broadcasts the cable goes over the air whereas in cable programs it goes to the provider. The problem with cable programs is that there are virtually no basic free of charge cable services.

Providers of cable television make their viewers dependent on them in the sense that the viewers have to see what ever the providers show. Nowadays cable TV provides a much better picture quality with the help of digital cable which makes the condition of weather, the presence of hills and line of sight have no bearing upon the picture quality. Cable television also offers Subscription costs and availability prove to be problems with cable television. Satellite shows a much more impressive and much broader line-up of television channels is generally preferred over cable. It also explores free to air channels provided by many different satellites.

Satellite television can come in subscription packages and can also be custom built by the viewer. Broadband internet is available on both cable television and satellite TV systems. It is pay-per-view and premium content internet. It is also a one way broadband connection. It is amazing how internet makes its presence felt everywhere in ones life in todays times. No wonder then, that both satellite and cable T-V are now being discarded gradually for Internet television viewing. With Video On Demand and thousands of channels, the features of Internet TV are much more advanced than other systems such as cable programs, terrestrial television or satellite broadcasts. Now people can watch online whats already available on television but on their own time and their own choice. How many times have we wished that our favorite show would come at a time when we did not have to work or cook? That is made possible by Internet T-V.

A lot of content is shown which is only online, and thus cannot be viewed on regular television. There is so much to choose from music, movies, videos, news, sports and dazzling array of content that more and more viewers are tuning into every day. Fresh audiences are being found for pre-recorded shows while special-interest shows with specific subjects are economical, available and easy to access. New features like audience rating are also being developed and the whole idea is to make Internet TV much more interactive than regular television. It is viewer centered and multi-device i.e. it can be played in many devices your computer, cell phone, regular television and other portable media devices. Quality content is available and still more is being developed for users to access. The non essential mindless bit of television can be totally cut out by being able to choose what you want to view, and this is very symbolic of the kind of freedom and liberation that technological advances have made possible for us.
