Television is a very much common device meant to feed us with a lot of information, news and entertainment.
Since the last one decade, the television industry reached at its utmost heights. Initially traditional TV broadcast went to satellites and afterwards took some more advance steps and now these are also available at the Internet.
Both terminologies; satellite TV and Internet TV are very common but very few understand about the difference of these two types of television transmissions and usually these are considered one.
Satellite TV refers to a television broadcast that is beamed to its viewers via orbiting communications satellites high above earth from a distance of between 20k to 40k miles. Because of these communications satellites, TV programs reach in wider areas that were impossible in traditional terrestrial or even for cable television. Before the satellite era, not every part of the world enjoy the latest news and entertainment programs coming from their television, but now it is possible for a person, either he is at the peak of Mount Everest or he is camping in Sahara Desert or fishing in deep seas, he can get the latest news, views and enjoy the latest movies and entertainment programs broadcasted through satellite TV.
Other than enjoying TV stations via satellite, many people think about how it works? It starts from ground television stations that send signals towards their satellite via huge dishes, sometimes bigger than 13 meters. This satellite then send the signals down to your receiver’s dish’s focal point and a LNB coverts these signals and sent the signals to your decoder box where the final conversation is happened and converted into audio & video which you enjoy sitting in front of our television sets.
At the other hand, the Internet provides you some of the best hassle free options to watch thousands of satellite TV stations without spending thousand of dollars on indoor and outdoor equipment. You don’t even need any hardware to watch free movies online. You can easily watch your favorite programs, even outdoors, from all over the world, so long as you have a high speed Internet connection (for better live streaming). There are several types of Internet TV services that can be selected. Each services work greatly. Some provide you live streaming and some provide recorded programs. The huge benefit in Internet TV is that you can connect to thousands of satellite television services simultaneously.
The disadvantage of Internet TV is that it delivers all types of programs without any discrimination to its viewers and most likely, children also get access to those programs or channels which are broadcasted for adult viewers. Although this becomes the responsibility of the parents or elders at home to keep a check on the activities of their young but still there should be some sort of authentic verification must be sorted out before airing such programs or channels.
