As technology advanced, consumers can now have more options than they can ever have in the past to obtain TV entertainments. Buenos Aires (AFP) – Argentina is launching a geostationary communications satellite Thursday that was built at home with local technology, a first for Latin America. However, you would need to first enable your PC to receive and interpret the satellite TV channel feed using what we call a PCTV card. To watch TV on your PC you need to purchase a piece of software which you generally download.
Now, satellite dishes are the size of a large Frizbee, the receiver is the size of a notebook, and using the system is as easy as operating a microwave. By 2000 Hughes Space and Communications (now Boeing Satellite Systems) had built nearly 40 percent of the satellites in service worldwide. The Air Force’s Project RAND eventually released the above report, but did not believe that the satellite was a potential military weapon; rather they considered it to be a tool for science, politics, and propaganda.
Because the satellite is geostationary you only need to set your TV satellite dish once, in the best position to receive a signal. And then there’s also the reduced expense on behalf of the satellite provider companies in regard to maintenance and service costs.
Both of the companies offer DVR, high definition channels, and exceptional sound and picture quality. Because of the land lines necessary to deliver and receive the Cable TV signal, there is a strong, well-established infrastructure to support the Cable system.
Plus a single bill that combines TV and internet – everything you need to keep up with the outside world. The broadcast from a company like DirecTV satellite HDTV receivers are digital giving it a much higher quality picture and top notch sound. Dish network offers a variety of programs including movies, sports, public interest, news, religious, entertainment, music, home shipping networks and pay-per-view programs. Satellite TV offers commercial free viewing with hundreds of channels, pay per view movies, special features like recording shows and events, rewinding what you are currently watching and lock buttons to control what your kids are viewing.
