Let us start at the beginning. What is HDTV Satellite? For a good number of years when I first heard about HDTV Satellite was some 10 years ago – I never knew what this name meant though in mind it connected with something very hi-fi.
As year rolled by and the fame of the HDTV Satellite spread, I learned a little more until my appetite to know the entire story was ignited in me. Basically speaking, this is a system where you have the following components TV, satellite dish and an HD receiver (or plain receiver).
This system will provide you a huge number of channels with extraordinary clarity and reliability. People today, still think they have a choice. Actually, you do not have a choice, if you want to have the best there is.
This is because there is nothing, which can offer a better viewing experience than the HDTV Satellite. The cable television, the darling of millions all over the globe, is fast loosing ground to the HDTV Satellite because it offers far more than any cable could ever possibly do at an astounding price.
The main deciding factor for your choice would be the picture quality of the HDTV Satellite, which can never be compared to any other type of transmission.
This is because the HDTV Satellite is one hundred percent digital. The fact that you can receive the huge number of channels is also attributed to this feature (being digital).
There have been a few myths floating around saying that the larger the dish antenna the better the reception. Nothing could be further from truth; today size is no longer a matter of concern or importance, neither is anywhere proven that large means better.
In fact, the opposite is true we are moving into the era of nano-technology and hence, the smaller they are the better they function.
There is one more myth making rounds, i.e. your viewing is only good as long as there is no rain. Again, this is not true. In fact, when compared to the cables reliability the HDTV Satellite is (maybe) 200% more in every aspect.
The rains and storms do not actually influence the reception or onwards transmission of the picture. Very rarely, you will have trouble with your reception, so rare that you will find it negligible.
There are many plans you could choose from the smallest plan would offer some 100 channels and you could choose one-by-one what channels you would want to view.
To add to your joy, you can also use your HDTV Satellite to receive satellite radio (as long as they are free stations).
