Why Satellite But Not Cable TV?
Why dish network satellite TV? What do you think on this? Because the technology used is later? Because the dish shape looks cool? No way, right? Letís see what dish network satellite TV has that makes cable TV losing the broadcast market.
Both cable TV and satellite TV use totally different approach in sending their broadcast. Cable TV uses analog signal while satellite TV uses digital signal. Although cable TV nowadays offers digital cable broadcast itís limited by channels and the area you live in. Meaning you can only enjoy the digital broadcast on certain but not all channels. In another hand, satellite TV shows their higher technology in this approach. With all digital signals, you will hardly get snowy screen even though heavy rain or snow going on outside. 1 point for satellite TV.
Cable TV and satellite TV both provide high quality programming channels. Cable TV offers up to 260 channels while Satellite TV offers more than that. Satellite TV offers up to 13 programming package such as Americaís Top 60, Dish Latino, just to name a few. Besides, satellite TV is more advance in term of High Definition Television where DishHD Packages is offered.
Cable TV provide DVR and on demand service - you can choose from a library of shows and start them whenever. However, satellite TV is not beaten by cable TV in this because Digital services like Dish Network's DVR (Digital Video Recorder) which gives the option to rewind while recording even in live broadcasts, EPG (Electronic Program Guide), Instant Weather, video on demand, etc. are all available on Satellite
I believe that most of us here have a strong concern on the pricing issue, havenít you? The difference between cable TV and satellite TV in term of pricing is big. Cable TV costs you $37.30 a month for 64 channels, plus $10.95 a month to add a few digital channels. Installation in one room is $39.95, plus $9.95 for each additional room. While satellite TV charges $29.99 a month for 230 of Dish Network's all-digital program channels, 94 music channels, 25 movie channels, and free installation in up to four rooms. Perhaps you are now clearer why satellite but not cable TV?
To conclude, satellite TV is definitely better than cable TV in term of broadcast quality, programming, interactive services, and most of all pricing. If you are looking for better experience in TV, I would thumb up on satellite TV.
