As television has become more and more popular over the years, a negative connotation has been associated with spending hours in front of the television.  People have begun to prefer watching television rather than enjoying other activities, such as reading or going to the park.  But today, with Direct TV, your options are almost endless and you can actually benefit from the various programs that are available on the television.  Restricting yourself to a certain number of hours of TV each week may no longer be necessary.  Today’s options with Direct TV give you with a number of educational and home exercise channels that are aimed toward every age and sex.

Often, parents set restrictions on how many hours and when their children are allowed to watch television.  And often, the mere fact that a restriction has been put on when and how often a child can watch television only makes him or her want to watch more!  But watching television no longer has to be the enemy.   Direct TV not only has channels for just those who enjoy television series or reality shows, but now offers several education channels as well.  Some of the most common and informative channels available today include the Discovery Channel, the National Geographic Channel and the History Channel.

With Discovery Channel, you will find a wide variety of documentaries and other programs that primarily focus on science, technology and history.  You will find an assortment of reality based programs that investigate a variety of topics.  Some of the most popular shows today are «Mythbusters», which attempts to prove and disprove well known myths, and «Dirty Jobs», which investigates various jobs that are overlooked by many people.  In recent years, the Discovery Channel has expanded and now has an entire network of channels.   Among these include Discovery Kids, Animal Planet and Discovery Health. These channels air programs that are specifically geared toward a more specific topic, such as children, animals or health shows.

The National Geographic Channel is also a great channel that provides you with valuable information.  This network differs a bit in that it has a stronger focus on the environment and natural science than other channels.  The network is based on shows that inform people how to take care of, protect and conserve our Earth.

A third channel that offers many educational programs is the History Channel.  This is an international channel that explores historical events and people, as well as unexplained phenomena.  Experts give their opinions and views regarding a variety of historical topics.  If you enjoy learning about things that occurred in the past and shaped the world that we live in today, this channel is full of an abundance of useful and interesting information.

Besides just educational channels, Direct TV also has a variety of home exercise channels.  You can learn how to do Yoga or Kickboxing, great abdominal exercises or step aerobics, all without even leaving your home.  Television today provides you with valuable information and not only exercises your mind, but physical exercise as well!

Why you should commission a family documentary

Times of your Life

You hear stories all the time about when someone’s house burns down, the first thing they grab are the family photo albums and home movies before they go running out the door. But in fact, while these items may be the first thing they grab, most people’s home movies and photo collections are stored in assorted boxes locked away in a dusty closet or slopped together in cheap photo albums that lay strewn on the bottom of a basement bookshelf where they rarely see the light of day. What people do with their home movies would make Steven Spielberg cry.

Your family media can be more then just a scattered collection of pictures and video tapes. Put together properly they can become more valuable then the worlds largest diamond or a fancy sports car. When all is said and done, your diamonds end up being fought over by greedy relatives and your sports car ends up in the used car lot. But your family media has the potential to live on and influence people for eternity. In a sense, it is the closest thing that we have at this point to immortality. Something that we can offer the next generation in regards to passing down little bits and pieces of our lives.

The Cold Hard Reality of Home Movie Editing

Editing home movies is a bitch. Sorry to phrase it that way, but there is really no other way to state what is a cold hard cruel fact of life. Editing and organizing home movies is one of those projects that we always say were going to do that somehow never seems to get done, and by the time we’ve resolved ourselves to the actual task of doing it, the mountain of home movies socked away in the closet has grown to Everest size proportions that the sight of defeats most of us before we even begin to properly edit and organize our home movies. Hence, the pile grows, the video degrades and our memories are cast off into the sea of digital oblivion.

The task of organizing and editing home movies is usually so overwhelming that it does not get properly done, if ever done at all. And that’s a crying shame. These memories are one of the most valuable possessions that you have. It’s extremely discouraging that most people put more time and money into purchasing and maintaining a new car then they do in preserving the videos of their kid’s first spin on a bike without training wheels. These are the times of our lives and if we don’t do something to properly maintain and store these digitally perishable items, they will be lost for the ages.

We are the first generation that has the technical ability to capture these moments for prosperity. A few years back, all you had, if you were lucky, was a shoe box full of handmade three minute films where you or our relatives usually danced in front of the camera doing something incredibly stupid in splendid scratchy, washed out silence. Now with the technology available to the masses, it is possible to record and document some ones entire life.

So, how do you take this great concept of documenting your family’s life, a shoe box of unmarked videos collecting dust in the closet, and put them together to make a great DVD that won’t bore people to tears. It’s not easy, but it is definitely worth it to try. Consider this. Would you rather give a gift that falls apart after a few years and crumbles back into the earth, or give your family a beautifully edited DVD of all the wonderful moments that you shared together raising them, that they in turn will hopefully pass down to their kids. It is, in a sense, one of the few things that you will leave behind that has the potential to be your living legacy. There are few things in life that one can give that offer this. But the reality of that gift is that you have to make the effort to do it for it to take effect.

I just spend a few weeks researching this article and unfortunately the bottom line is, this article included that if there is a need there is someone there trying to sell you something to do something, that even if you do buy whatever it is that they are selling, you’re not going to be able to do. Problem with editing and organizing home movies, is that just like everything else, there are more hucksters and rip off artist then there are actually people who can do what you need done, well.

When it comes to editing and maintaining your home movies, the first thing that you need that nobody can sell you, is time. So beware before you buy anything related to editing you own home movies. The market is swamped with products that claim to make this task simple. It is not a simple task. To properly put together your home movies, you are going to have to pay someone, or take the time to learn how to do it yourself. The key ingredient here is time. Time to install hardware, time to install software, time to digitize, time to log material and time to actually sit down and do the editing.

Motivating yourself to do it and getting started is probably the biggest obstacle you will have to overcome. IM a professional video producer and it took me a year and a half to get my ass motivated enough to sit down and do the actually dirty work of editing together a family video about our beach vacations. What it actually involved, once I got started was daunting, even to a seasoned pro like me.

For starters, there is the collecting of all of the material that you are going to need to produce a decent production. This is where you go around the house looking for all of those home movies that you are your family has shot over the years. It is also at this point you may want to sit down and decide what it is that you are attempting to do. If you are planning on tackling your whole home movie collection in one sitting, forget it. This won’t happen overnight. It’s better to take on the task of editing home movies in small manageable chunks.

Then after you have collected all of your home movies and sill photo’s you have to make sure that you have the technical means to complete the project. It is at this point that you will probably find that you are missing something and you will need to spend money to purchase what is needed to produce whatever it is that you want to do. Let me repeat, spend money! Just like everything else in life, you’re going to get what you’re willing to put into it. And to properly edit your home movies you’re going to spend some cash. There’s really no way around it.

There’s several ways of going about the process of creatively editing and storing your home movies. Except of one exception, all these options require a large time commitment and extreme effort. Any publication or sales pitch promising you that this process is easy, and simple, should be avoided, shredded and sent back to the publisher. If someone tells you that the process of producing a family documentary and family media management is easy, then they are lying to you and trying to get you to buy something. Should you spend your cash on anything that has these two words “easy and simple” in their advertisement or web site, then you have been or are going to be ripped off.

What I’m trying to outline here in this article, is information that you can use to make a decision that will change your life forever. Why? Because if done properly, home movies can be a medium that you can use as an extension of yourself that can transcend generations. It is a way for you to communicate feelings that we have to people who do not even know us yet. Imagine for a moment the warmth and joy that you feel watching your child take his or her first steps. Now imagine being able to convey those feelings to that child ten years later. We now have the technology to make ourselves immortal.

Ten, twenty years from now, we are not going to be the same people that we are now. The home moves we share can, if used properly, allow us to traverse those spans in time and give us a chance to express just exactly who it is that we were.

Leave it to the professionals.

The first option is that you pay a company like “Times of Your Life” to do it for you. If you can afford it, and not many of us mortals can, I highly recommend this for numerous reasons, too many to list them all here. If you can afford it, then by all means, let some highly creative producer put it together for you. Yes, you will pay a lot of money, but in the end you will have a quality documentary about your family delivered to you on a DVD that can be shared with everyone. You will also get all of your family media stored and organized onto hard drives that you can access later for your own use. Once this is done correctly the first time, updating the files is not that difficult and can be done yearly. Compared with what most people can do on their own, the results of letting a professional do it for you, pale in comparison.

Problem with this option is that there are not too many companies out there who can really do the job well. But if you are fortunate enough to have the expendable cash and access to a producer, like myself (A little shameless self promotion here for our company Times of Your Life Media), then this is the ultimate option which will provide you with the highest quality production, the most organized delivery of your digitized media, and what we Americans like most, and that is it is the easiest way for you to do it.

Now, just like buying that expensive car, the above option presents two major hurdles. Funding, and finding someone who can do it well. The market is swamped with wedding photographers who claim that they can also edit and organize your home movies for you. Don’t you believe it! Most wedding photographers are amateur hacks who think because they bought a semi-professional camera on e-bay that it entitles them to call themselves professional video producers. Just like any other profession, you get what you pay for. Go cheap, and then pass out the forks with the pop corn when you show people the results.

If you are going to spend the cash to have someone produce your family home movies, spend it wisely and on someone who knows what the hell they are doing. Find someone who is a real television producer/editor and someone who is passionate about what they do. After all, these are the times of your life. Your home movies no matter what the quantity or quality can be transformed into family heirlooms if properly produced.

Also, if you are laying out the cash for this option, make sure that you get your media back in a way that you can access it yourself, preferably on hard drives with everything organized into bins that you can add future home movies into.

Creatively Editing Home Movies…

Problem with home movies is that they are for the most part boring. I just had a look at a website that showcased people’s raw home movies, and man I got to tell you, the Pentagon should really consider forcing terrorist suspects to watch unedited home movies as a form of extracting information. No offense but beside seeing people that you recognize dancing around on New Years, with lampshades on their heads, a home movie, in it’s raw state is not really what I would consider a entertaining way to spend a evening. Now on the other hand, a properly edited, creatively produced home movie can be a valuable keepsake that can be handed down from generation to generation. The key words here are creatively produced.

This past summer I took fifteen years of beach vacation home video and edited it into an hour long mini documentary about our family’s vacations at the beach. In my production I used home movie material and I went around interviewing people in my family and asking them to tell me there best beach stories. I also added still pictures and our favorite music. The final result was a highly produced program that told the story of our family’s trips to the beach. The finished program looked great, sounded great, and is now a permanent record of some of the greatest moments of our lives. Each year all I have to do is edit what was shot during subsequent vacations and update copies for my family members. Not only is it a permanent record of some of the greatest times of our life, it is also entertaining to watch, even to people who are not part of the clan.

What it took as far as labor and time is something that you will have to consider when approaching your project. For just the summer vacations I had to digitize over 46 hours of various format home movies. This involved five 300 gigabyte hard drives. Countless hours of dealing with video that would not capture, and finding machines that I could use to playback dated video material that had to be converted from analog to digital.

The ultimate option? Let a professional do it for you.

Should you not be so inclined, let me leave you with this final option. Let a professional do it for you. That’s what my company “Times of your Life” does. We are a full service production company producing high quality, documentary style videos for consumers. What it means is that we take peoples home movies, pictures and actually develop a scripted documentary about someone’s family that looks as good as anything that you see on regular television. This means that we use the same approach that we do for our network clients like Discovery, TLC and Court TV to produce a finished television production. The results are impressive.

Times of You Life, produces anything from a full blown family documentary, to short professionally produced video projects that include a “Day in Your Life videos, or an anniversary tape for grand parents. We also produce projects that cover specific home movie productions for family events like vacations, kids birthdays and holidays.

In the past we have produced short projects that cover the life of a child or a relative that can be given to loved ones as mementoes. These projects cover specific time periods and are not as involved as the production of family documentaries, but the results are, once again impressive. Give us a call and either my self or one of our producers will fill you in on the details.

I do not take this business of home movies lightly. For me, it is one of the few things that I will be able to give my daughter that will allow her to understand who I was and the role I played in her life. When I’m gone, she will have these collections in which to learn about where she came from, and who I was. So in a way, I will be able to be with her

For most of us mortals, producing a project like this is out of reach financially. But if you are interested, give us a call or visit our web site a www.timesofyourlifemedia.com. For the rest of us, we will have to make do with the means available.

A few closing notes…

Protecting and preserving your home movies should be the first thing that you do. If you’re a family person, then those video tapes should be treated like gold. Except this gold will end up worthless unless you take proper care to make sure that it maintains its value.

Back up your back ups.

It’s a good idea to make multiple copies of home movies regardless of format. If it’s a DVD, then while you’re burning one copy, burn another and stash it away. If possible make a copy of the more important DVDs, such as a child’s birth or first birthday, then burn off a few extra copies and give them to responsible relatives to hold on to.

In this digital age, the memories of all those wonderful family moments are on your hard drives, flash drives, memory sticks and whatever other digital storage devices you use. Eventually these hard drives will crash. The only way to really protect them is to make backing up the media a part of your life. So back them up every few years. Spend a few bucks now, and you’ll be crying over watching your kid’s first ride without training wheels instead of crying over a smoking hard drive. You owe this to your children and their children.

It’s All in Your Hands

So, it’s all in your hands. The good news is, that once you get st
arted, the process gets easier. Once your home movies are properly maintained it’s just a matter of taking a few moments each month to update your family media files. After you’re done shooting a tape, or a DVD, take an hour or so and edit down the material and keep the best of material on a clip reel, or even better yet. Keep adding to the epic that you have already started.

In the end

Think about it. You are part of the first generation that is able to hand down a visual record of the life that you are living. Without that, you’re just a deleted social security number and a tomb stone. I just finished editing the home movies for the first four years of my daughter’s life. I love my child more then I ever thought possible, and I have from time to time, sat in front of the camera and told her just how wonderful it is to be her father. Now thanks to this medium, and the fact that I took the time and made the effort to produce her video, I can share those feelings of joy with her now and for the rest of our lives.

The Family Media that I have produced is something that will live on beyond my mortal life. And someday, when my daughter becomes her own person and shows these video productions to her children, I too will live once more.

Dish network channels showcase a diverse range of content

Dish network channels showcase a diverse range of content. There’s something for every age group, be it for toddlers, teens, tweens, middle-aged or simply aged. If you are looking for an issue that you feel about, there’s something on satellite TV to help you cope with what’s on your mind. Because of the issues that are dealt on dish TV channels, the moral police sometimes take up cudgels and censor content shown on these channels. This brings us to the topic: how much is morality a part of direct satellite TV services? Let’s examine.

If you are looking at teen territory in the dish network channels, there are many issues that have come under the radar. Sexting, teen pregnancy, substance abuse, alcohol, you name it and it has been addressed on the satellite TV channels. The question arises: does it portray teens in a negative light? Does it influence other teens to think on the same terms? There is no doubt that teenage years are the most formative years of an individual’s life. They learn from what they see. Parents can be concerned that they might try to emulate what they see on these dish TV channels. So is there really a cause for concern?

It would be presumptive to jump to the conclusion that dish network channels influence teens in a bad light. It all depends on how you see it. While on one hand you can take it as something negative, you can also take it as a sort of learning lesson. Your teenage kids can know what not to do when they see their favorite characters make mistakes and suffer the consequences. They will be more aware of the world around them. They will wake up to real issues, thanks to the dish TV channels that they are watching.

The same goes for adults. Issues like infidelity, midlife crisis bother every adult. Dish network channels showcase these issues in a light that can only be described as sensitive. There are lessons to be drawn and there lies the victory of satellite TV services. It teaches you a thing or two about life. You know what awaits you on the wrong side of the law when you see your favorite character on dish TV go down the slide. Lessons are not always learnt on non-fiction shows on Discovery and Nat Geo.

Dish network channels have characters that you identify with. Their actions bring about their consequences. As an intelligent member of the satellite TV audience you know you have the right to pick and choose what you want to watch. If something is not to your taste, the dish TV remote offers enough options to move over to.

Imagine a situation, you have missed your favorite TV show due to some engagement elsewhere or there was a problem in the cable network. Moreover, you don’t have Digital Video Recorder (DVR) to watch the programs later. In that case you may become mentally exhausted. However, armed with an Internet connection you can easily watch TV online. One of the most unique benefits of online TV is that this mode enables the users to cherish their favorite TV shows. Moreover, programs that gain poor ratings are also available via the online mode. So, no matter what your taste is, you will be able to satisfy your desire with online mode.

In the realm of online TV, there are several websites that offer free TV online. Youtube and hulu.com are some of the sites that have created a niche for airing free TV channels. With the rise in demand for web applications, Internet technology is going through a sea of change. Its speed has witnessed major push forward. If you want to watch TV online, you need to avail the best quality Internet connection. The influence of Internet TV is undeniable but it has yet to cover lots of distance.

Around the world, research and development works are going on at a fast pace to make TV online accessible to every TV lover. Armed with an Internet connection, you can enjoy both the recorded as well as the streaming version of online TV. The cost behind this unique entertainment is also witnessing a plunge. So, there is no point in brooding about the side affects of this unique enjoyment if you decide to watch TV online.

It is a fact that not all of the online TV channels are available free of cost. Programs like ‘Lost’ will ask you to pay some money for enjoying its podcast version. Popular channels like HBO or AXN might ask the viewer to avail the premium services. But the fact is that in the near future, Internet TV is going to rule the kingdom of audiovisual entertainment with its state-of-the-art technology.

One of the positive aspects of online TV is that you will encounter with few commercial breaks while enjoying it. In conventional TV the viewer sometimes become irritated with crowd of advertisements but here only a couple of advertisers act as the sponsors. If you want to watch TV online then it would be better if you link your computer with the TV to enjoy the programs on the big screen. On the other hand, this mode is ideal while you are on a trip.

Internet TV has the potential to remain here for the longer period. Online television not only air popular programs but also movies and sports. However, one has to take enough precautions before exploring the benefits of online version of audiovisual medium. Safeguarding the PC against online malicious elements like virus or adware should be kept in mind while enjoying online entertainment.

I often use movies as a reference point when thinking about an event or culture from the past. It’s always good to have an associated Visual reference when learning about history, so why couldn’t be a movie that you enjoy?

Movies can be the best history teacher in the world, as long as use them as a general reference and not as absolute historical fact. It’s easy, with a little pactice to pick out movies that have a historical significance and which ones don’t. Some films only use fictional characters, while other films are using actual historical figures. Still, films that are believed to be entirely fiction can still make an accurate or truthful portrayal of their time-frame.,e.g King Arthur

If a movie gives a good approximation of what the life and the culture was probably like during that era or time period; then it is good for study.

Take the movie Kingdom of Heaven for example: Kingdom of Heaven is set in the year 1100 a.d., and takes place in France and Jeruselum. Filmed in 2005 and directed by Ridley Scott. Orlando Bloom playsBalian of Ibel. In a remote village in France, Balian of Ibel, who was a blacksmith, and he is haunted by his wife’s recent suicide. A group of Crusaders arrive at the home of Balian and, Baron Godfrey of Ibelin, and Balian’s father, having learned of Balian’s recent losses asks Balian to join him as they travel to Jerusalem, in the hope that he will take his place as heir to the throne.

While all the events portrayed in Kingdom of Heaven might not be entirely accurate, the characters in Kingdom of Heaven are actual historical figures. Little is known about the events that happened to Balian of Ibel. The movie is a heavily fictionalized portrayal. Recorded history has different details about the events that took place, but the Characters and the locations are historically accurate. It’s unlikely that the Events in Kingdom of Heaven ever really happend, and noone can know for sure, but I think it’s likely that something similar has probably happend sometime throughout history in a similar enough way.

Maybe you’ll look at historical movies different now. I now have an excellent grasp of historical time periods and such, and I swear it’s because of movies more than any other influence.

There is no doubt that Naruto is one of the biggest anime that hit the US market today, but can Naruto be educational? From its origin from a more Eastern background, animation in general has come a long way since its first inception. Starting back in the old days with the original dragon ball series where it was first created all the way to Naruto today, there have definitely been a lot of changes that have been taken place in the animation world.

The population of kids attracted to Naruto is growing by the day and I believe there is a clear reason why it is the most popular anime or cartoon here in the US today besides its artistic values in comparison with numerous cartoons that are shown in our television screen on a day to day basis. Let’s take a look our cartoon Batman for example. The plot or a single episode usually involves with a villain shown in the story and causes trouble with a certain amount of people through their special techniques. However, their evil deeds are eventually squashed toward the end of the episode as Batman saves the day. In the cartoon itself, there’s nothing wrong with it. The good prevails over evil, and the single episode is ended with a happy ending.

What the problem with these cartoons however is that they are very interpersonal and kids and teens cannot relate themselves to them. Kids nowadays are more intrigued with interactions then ever before. This is shown through the popularity of the internet and social sites such as Myspace, Facebook, Blogger. They have grown tremendously due to its fundamental pitch to allow kids to relate and connect with each another.

What has made Naruto so powerful is as an anime is that they have developed their characters so well that their ability to relate to kids is tremendous. Similar to a soap opera, we are able to see each and every single character develop in their own way. We see that the animation characters often time interact with the kids through numerous contests and promotions related to interact with the kids. This type of close and very personalized interaction, you can think of it similar to the strategy that McDonald uses to make kids feel like at home. It is no wonder that kids love McDonalds and the same way goes with Naruto.

The adult humor aside, Naruto is also very educational in my opinion. The focal point of the animation itself remains between the fight of good and evil. However it becomes educational throughout various episodes when we are provided the background of various characters. For example when we examine the life of just the main character Naruto; not only is he a below average kid, he is always the underdog in terms of his studies beside the fact that he’s also unpopular with others. The crucial point that the animators have it a success is how Naruto reacts to these oppositions. He tries even harder! Similar in our society unlike the baby boomers who in majority have worked with the corporate world for many years and an overwhelmingly amount of them have pensions and benefits to assist them after retirement, the people from Generation X are faced with even greater challenges. Besides massive layoffs and work sent overseas, the problems just keep stacking up. Along with kids that grow up nowadays, the piles of stress have pushed them toward the edge in many ways. That’s why we see kids running into the malls and shooting others all the time in our news today.

Not only does Naruto try hard in his daily training to overcome others that are smarter or have talents, the greatest success that animators have by developing Naruto Episode is by depicting how normal he really is. It implies in many ways that hardships will always come in our way and hard work will always payoff in the end. This is something that is lacking in today’s society where the richer gets richer and the poorer gets poorer. Doesn’t matter if you’re poor or rich, one must always work hard to achieve success. Obviously a little bit of luck would always help too. This is one of the only small lessons that I’ve observed in the anime Naruto, if you haven’t watched Naruto yet, you should definitely eitherwatch Naruto by yourself or with others. Who knows, you might learn something from it as well!

Sci-fi tv shows are a class apart from regular tv drama series

Sci-fi TV shows are a class apart from regular TV drama series. They have many special effects and sound mixing that goes well with both teenagers and adult viewers. The most talked about sci-fi drama shows are ‘Star Trek’ and ‘Doctor Who’. However, two very important shows have made a mark on their own right and are a delight to watch even today.

The X Files

The X-Files is America’s most popular science fiction TV series that gained immense popularity in the late 1990’s. The lead characters Fox Mulder and Dana Scully are known faces throughout the world because the series is repeatedly broadcast in many local channels even today.

The show has 141 nominations in many award categories and has won 61 individual awards from different agencies. The show has won many Emmy awards under categories like – graphic design, title sequences, cinematography, sound editing, mixing, makeup, camera etc. What has endeared the series over all these years is the gripping story line and fantastic star cast. David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson need special mention for their convincing portrayal of FBI agents.

Twin Peaks

Another FBI based science fiction TV show that caught the viewer’s imagination is ‘Twin Peaks’. It was one of the top rated shows of the 1990’s and was critically acclaimed at the international level. Twin Peaks has devout fan bases who continue to watch the series, which is being aired sporadically on NBC channel.

Kyle MacLachlan who has portrayed the lead character of Agent Dale Cooper needs special mention; whose eccentric character is still fondly remembered by fans across the world. Twin Peaks won eight nominations in the 1990 Emmy’s and managed to win two awards for costume design and editing. Though not as popular as The X-Files, it had a dedicated fan following during its course of telecast.

The shows are available on DVD and Internet TV. Watching TV episodes online is fun, especially on a Saturday night with a big group of friends. Check out one of these during this weekend and learn how to expect the unexpected to happen.

Have Fun!

Bored of the hazy and dull lifeless picture and poor sound quality of the shows broadcasted through cable television? Switch to satellite TV instead. The satellite TV signals are broadcasted directly from the satellites to the satellite TV dish in your home. This minimizes the distortion of signals to a great extent. Minimum distortion ensures that you get the best quality digital picture every time you switch on your TV. Let’s have a quick look on how the satellite TV technology works to provide the best quality visuals to its viewers.

The satellite TV transmits satellite TV signals from Earth’s orbit. The signals are transmitted in straight lines and they directly reach your satellite TV dish. The feed horn placed on the satellite TV dish collects the signals and then transfers those Dish Network signals to the satellite TV receiver. The satellite TV receiver in turn transforms the satellite signals to analog signals and then transfers the signals to the TV terminals. This way you can get a clear visual and sound output on you dish TV.

Cable TV on the other hand is transmitted through a network of wires. As the wires are not arranged in a straight lines the signals that travel in straight lines starts getting distorted. Thus the signals get distorted multiple times before reaching your home. Thus the quality of visual and sound output becomes very poor. You can never get an audio and visual output standard similar to dish TV on cable TV services.

Dish Network makes your TV time an enjoyable experience with hundreds of dish channels. These dish channels come in both standard definition and high definition mode. There are over fifty HD channels in Dish Network. You can have a visual experience worth remembering while opting for them. You can also opt for the standard definition channels. For the standard definition channels as well as for the HD channels you will need different equipments. For both types of channels you will need one satellite TV dish. However, for receiving the HD channels a special type of satellite TV receiver. This receiver is known as satellite TV HD receiver. You will also need a HDTV to make the most out of the HD channels on dish TV. If you want to record certain programs from the HD channels you can also opt for the HD DVR system to get the optimum visual delight.

On the other hand you do not need any special kind of equipments for viewing channels on dish TV. With Dish Network installation you get satellite TV dish and a standard satellite TV receiver. With the satellite TV receivers you can get all the channels that come in standard definition mode. You do not have to opt for a costly HDTV to enjoy the standard definition dish channels. The standard definition channels also offer high quality visual output to satisfy your entertainment needs. You are sure to have a wonderful time watching both high definition as well as standard definition channels.

Internet was a well known mode of publicity some time back. It did reach out to the regular users. But many places did not have the facility of a computer.

An internet requires heavy terrestrial cables and heavy equipment. But dish network is not cumbersome.

Advertisements running on the satellite TV channels are not very interesting. But they do help in hammering the idea to the viewer’s head.

Teleshopping and other such shows are the medium of promoting your services and products through these channels. Most of these programs are not as entertaining as the movies.

The giant images and the highly digital pictures with good clarity create a magic. People tend to take interest in the same program that they wouldn’t prefer watching at home.

The high definition picture offered by Dish Network changes the outlook of the entire TV show that you get to watch on a traditional television system. So it would be a wise attempt on your part to promote your product through the satellite TV shows.
