Satellites Satellite television is television programming delivered by the means of communications satellite and received by an outdoor antenna, usually a parabolic mirror generally referred to as a satellite dish, and as far as household usage is concerned, a satellite receiver either in the form of an external set- top box or a satellite tuner module built into a TV set. Satellite TV tuners are also available as a card or a USB stick to be attached to a personal computer. In many areas of the world satellite television provides a wide range of channels and services, often to areas that are not serviced by terrestrial or cable providers.
Cable TV Cable TV first appeared in England in 1932 and was introduced by the Rediffusion corporation. Originally cable TV was designed to provide clearer TV reception in areas that could not properly receive TV channels through their antennae. Cable TV greatly expanded the influence of TV on modern life. Cable TV is now popular all over the world. There are many benefits that come with cable TV however the main benefit is that there are hundreds of channels being broadcasted 24 hours a day.
Pay…Per…View Pay per view provides a service by which a television audience can purchase events to view by private telecast. The broadcaster shows the event at the same time to everyone ordering it. Events can be purchased using an on-screen guide, an automated telephone system, or through a live customer service representative. Events often include feature films, sporting events and entertainment.
