Top Reasons Why You Need to Order a Satellite TV Connection for Your Home

By Nathan Brown T Subscribe to RSS | March 5th 2012 | Views:

Are you one of those confused by the war between cable TV and satellite TV providers? Then it is time you took stock of your needs afresh and order you requirements accordingly. Both have advantages and disadvantages, but then settling for both is something that you may not want. The major issues you need to consider before ordering a TV service is the cost, quality and reliability, and that is where satellite TV makes its mark felt. They don’t have to maintain a network of wires running across and the attendant cost involved in maintaining them. A small break somewhere on the network means hundreds and thousands of connections going dead until they are repaired and put into operation. Satellites on the other hand have little such problems and that is the reason why more and more homes prefer to use them.

Satellite TVs have a national footprint. That means what you see on the east coast can be accessed in the west as well, and they have no reason to charge the users differently. In fact the foot print can be so wide that it is even possible to access service across the borders and increased revenue for the satellite TV companies. In turn that ensures a lower operating cost and hence their prices too are competitive. Where as a cable TV is just the opposite; territorial restrictions and increased expenditures make it difficult for them to expand and resultantly they prove to be expensive for the average user.

Another reason why users prefer satellite TV is the ease of installation. Equipment is sophisticated enough and they don’t need to be connected through wires to any public utility. That ensures no signal is lost like in cable TV. The only problem that a novice will face during installation is tuning the dish to the right direction facing the satellite. The other equipment like a set up boxes will let you record shows and even allow users to order on demand services. Remember that cable is not accessible at anyplace; you will need to be somewhere close to a network to get yourself connected.

Satellite TV providers don’t demand an activation fee like cable TV companies do and all that you may need is extra length of cable if you live in a high rise building. The set top boxes are usually supplied at no additional cost. If you choose you can even buy additional DVRs to enjoy TV in all the rooms if you prefer and HD at that! Another interesting point you may not want to miss is the large number of channels that they provide compared with the cable TV. Of course when it comes to local channels the satellite TV providers may be wanting in some aspect.

If you are shifting you home, cable TV may be difficult to take along with you. First you will need to know whether the present operator is active near your home, and if at all it is, you still need to find if it is close enough to terminate an optic fiber at your home’s door step. It is even possible that an optic fiber cable connection straight to your home is not feasible. In which you will be provided only with a coaxial cable, and coaxial cable are prone to data losses, and that can make reception a little undesirable.

However the mother of all reasons to go satellite is that there is no reason to call a service man as frequently as is the case with cable TV. Rarely do they fail, and if at all they do, it is not related to local conditions. If you live in a rural area then rest be assured that satellites are better, and that is enough reason to order them.
