The breakthroughs of high-definition TV with its quality output these television sets provide are now supplemented by the advanced technology of the digital satellite. Various companies are offering the service of this modern approach in TV viewing pleasure provided by the satellite television.
The popularity of the Direct Broadcast Satellite (DBS) is the satellite TV broadcasts intended for home reception. The broadcast is delivered by the means of communication satellites and is received by digital satellite or the aerials and set-top box.
Prior to the services of the digital satellite there was the cable operator’s service. Cable operators received the satellite television channels and cable television networks which then received the broadcasting of channels by the subscribers. The provider makes different packages of selected programs and channels and broadcasts them to the subscribers. The provider delivers the subscribers with hundreds of channels just as a cable operator does.
Recently, most of the customers and subscribers get their programming through a Direct Broadcast Satellite provider. DBS are based on the concept of Dish or Direct to Home concepts. These digital satellites contain five components, which are necessary for providing Direct to Home service: The programming source, the broadcast center, the satellite, the satellite dish and the digital satellite receivers.
Technically, the DBS has initially distinguished the transmissions directly intended for home viewers, thus the term Direct-to-Home or DTH comes into being. DTH is often used in reference to services carried by lower power satellites which required larger dishes for reception.
There are numerous providers in the market today providing the Direct to Home services. They offer wide variety of packages to choose from that contain different channels. The channels come under the categories of movies, entertainment, sports, music, children’s programs, infotainment, and more.
Most digital satellite service companies inquire about different packages and their prices before availing. They make a list of the channels or programs you want to subscribe and eventually set the corresponding price of that package. The company then selects the best DTH provider for your purchase.
Furthermore, to receive the programs, you need to install one digital satellite dish at your home premises as receivers. Before the company sets up the dish, they will check for the required conditions for installing the set-top box.
The digital satellite dish will catch the signals and encryptions from the main communications satellite. The transmission will break down the encryptions and transform into the electronic language or codes. The codes will then be interpreted and once compatibility is recognized with the set-top box, you can enjoy the viewing pleasure from your TV sets.
