The number of people using satellite TV system has increased since its emergence into the market in the early 1960s. The technology behind it has also advanced a lot since the «Early Bird», one the first commercial satellite TVs. This TV had very poor pictures of low quality as compared to the present day crystal clear Direct-to-home deliveries available on Satellite Television.

Satellite TV works by means of communication between a satellite dish, a set-top-box and the global communication satellite. The whole set communicates by means of signals sent by an elliptical geostationary orbit located about 37, 000 km away from the earth’s surface.

The cycle of satellite TV communication starts where an uplink station transmits the signals using a powerful dish network antenna towards the satellite geostationary orbit in the sky. The uplink satellite dishes are usually large in diameter so as to increase the accuracy to the orbiting station receiving the signals. Thereafter, the transponder resends the signals back to the earth for your satellite TV.

Due to the evolving technologies and new ideas, the quality of satellite TV reception has tremendously improved over the years. Initially, the images were of low quality and were largely affected by atmospheric conditions. As newer technology remedies were invented, there came such equipments as parabolic receiving dishes which were a solution to weak satellite signals. Earlier, the sound was not in fine resonance with the images. However, later on satellite TV experts came up with low noise amplifier to tune in the sound-image accompaniment.

Another aspect that has changed about satellite TVs is that the costs of equipments and the expenditure of installation have tremendously gone down. This is due to the cheaper alternatives that have been employed as far as technology is concerned. For instance, the switch from the C-Band systems to the currents satellite TV systems enabled cheaper connection to the UHF TVs and made it possible for viewers to view multiple channels from the same connection line. This in turn resulted to mass production in relation to the equipments and commercial connections.

As the digital quality technology has gained publicity, the satellite TV has also gone digital. This is a great improvement as compared to the old PAL and NTSC technologies. These improvements have made many people to subscribe to the satellite TV systems, therefore moving always from the traditional analog TVs. As opposed to those days when people thought that those who had satellite TV were rich, these days all people from all walks of life can have the connection as well.
