Satellite TV has come a long way since it was first developed more than 50 years ago. Today’s subscribers don’t have the same problems the satellite pioneers did, which included erratic signals, dishes that were overly large and a lack of flexibility with how the technology was used in the household.
Today, however, satellite provides users with a variety of advantages over cable. Here are just a few of those advantages, which you can enjoy with the help of a DISH retailer in San Bernardino County, CA.
Cable TV providers simply cannot reach all locations, especially areas that are more rural or remote. Therefore, satellite is often the best (and even the only) option for people who aren’t located in cities of a certain size. All the satellite needs is a clear, uninhibited view of the southern sky, and you’ll be able to get reliable, high-quality picture, no matter where you live.
Outstanding picture and sound
Satellite provides objectively better picture and sound quality than cable. This is because it’s broadcast directly from the satellite to the receiver you have in your home. Other methods of delivering television signals involve sending the signal through other methods of transport, which can result in a lower-quality picture or sound. This direct broadcasting method allows satellite providers to give their customers much crisper pictures.
Compare this to cable TV, in which the broadcast will travel through cables for potentially hundreds of miles, passing through redistribution boxes along the way that amplify the signal. You simply won’t get as good of sound and picture quality through this method as you will through satellite.
Avoid dealing with local cable providers
Cable companies are frequently among the companies that have the worst consumer reputations and feedback. Unfortunately, given the monopolies most of these companies have over their local areas, there’s not much that consumers can do about the poor quality of service and pricing they receive… other than switch to satellite. Satellite TV provides an alternative to big cable companies that take over smaller markets and push out the smaller, regional providers. So if you want to avoid supporting the less-than-stellar business practices and service of Big Cable, satellite is your best bet.
As you choose the type of TV you’ll go with, you probably want to know how much you’re going to get for your money. Both cable and satellite TV will give you plenty of options for channels and packages, but satellite TV will almost certainly offer more channels in similarly priced packages. It will also carry networks that cable providers do not get, which means exclusive content and more sports access. You’ll even get other features, such as satellite music and radio functionality.
These are just a few of the advantages associated with satellite TV. For more information, contact JDS Systems to speak with an expert DISH retailer in San Bernardino County, CA about your options and pricing. We will be happy to answer any questions you have for us!
