Satellite TV on PC - over 4500 channels in all world
There are areas that are not served by the usual terrestrial or cable television in the world. These are remote areas that have few populations of people and it is considered expensive to install the networked cable or the terrestrial masts. In such areas, only satellite TV can work for them.
You may also be in need of watching television programs based in foreign countries. Due to the difference in location you may not be serviced by a cable and thus this kind of technology would be what you need. The service providers usually charge a monthly fee to cater for their cost of transmitting the channels to you.
The first ever communication using this technology was done in early 1960s but the technology went commercial in the 1990s. It involves satellites orbiting in space placed at an angle facing earth. The television station sends signals that are reflected back to the different recipients on earth.
For home users, it is necessary to have parabolic dishes that receive the signal from the orbiting station. The dish is commonly referred to as satellite dish. It must be placed outside where the signal received will be clear.
Inside, a decoder is necessary to enable your television show all the programs. Some of these service providers however have introduced TV set modules that readily decode the channels. Even more recently, there have been cards and USB sticks that are attached to computers to give access to the channels.
Satellite TV could also be a good choice for those who are tired with the usual cable problems and the high cost of transmission. There are very many providers available in almost every town and there have been adverts all over the stations about the good packages that they offer. The best service provider is one that has been in the market for a long time and has had some good ratings. The number of channels provided is also important.
