Satellite Vs Cable Television
This article is meant to help you compare both Satellite and Cable television. After reading this and perhaps doing a bit of studying, you can ensure that you don't waste your money on something.
Digital Programming: Satellite is broadcasted in 100% Digital; this ensures great quality with both video and sound so that you don't miss out on anything. Basic cable is all analog, if you wanted to get digital quality television you would have to PAY for digital cable, and even then you still are restrained by bandwidth limitations! Satellite has 100% digital programming for all of its channels, no upgrade is necessary, so no unwanted fee.
Cash Money: Though it will vary by where you live, and what service you order, in almost all cases getting satellite television will save you money as opposed to cable television.
For those of whom who are paying a lot for satellite television would be paying more with cable for the same package, that is if they could even get some of the features that satellite offers.
Cable television prices keep rising, I remember when I had cable and I first got it, I was paying around twenty dollars a month, around the time I moved the bill was up to forty dollars a month and that isn't even including the extra amount I was paying for the cable boxes. I've had satellite, DirecTV more specifically, for quite some time now and the price hasn't gone up a bit.
Programming Capability: Satellite Television Systems are able to handle more programming choices than most other cable systems. This gives the consumer a much larger selection. Dish Network is capable of handling over 500 television channels. The abundance of bandwidth and their ability to attract an audience from around the world allows them to broadcast to more than the English speaking audience.
High Definition Broadcasting: HD Broadcasting is one of the latest things it allows for better quality video and sound on their channels. Currently HDTV is on many satellite television channels while cable doesn't have nearly as many.
Programming: If you compare the amount of programming between satellite and cable and then factor in each of their prices you will definitely see which service is better. DirecTVís base package of 140 channels costís $39.99 a month, I had basic cable a while back for the very same price, and I didnít get more than 60 channels, and I was constantly having to call the company to get someone out there because the cable was out.
My Synopsis: Satellite television is the best of the two hands down, no matter how you look at it. It beats cable in every aspect of the market. Whether your concerned about the quality of the shows you watch, the price and how deep itís going to dig into your pockets, the channels that you will receive, or the amount of channels you can get, satellite is simply better to say the least. Whether you choose to use DirecTV or Dish Network, youíll have made the right choice in choosing satellite programming over cable.
