Satellite TV Technology for the Future
Posted April 11, 2011

Internet TV, in short, is video and audio data sent over an Internet connection. It is also called Internet protocol television, or IPTV. Broadcasting rights to Internet TV differ from country to country. These rights are implemented to govern the allotment of copyrighted content and media.

Internet TV broadcasting is almost similar to watching television via an antenna or a series of cable wires, the difference being that information is delivered over the Internet as data. The advantage that Internet TV has over cable TV is that it has much more variety, along with many of the similar shows you find on the established networks, most Web sites provide autonomously produced shows targeted at people with specific interests.

Internet TV is still a relatively new phenomena, and quality, matter and expenses can greatly vary. Shows are of very good quality and professionally produced material. Although the only drawback seems to be the difference in video quality and the varying screen size, right now Internet TV, broadcasting offers a few more benefits than traditional television does. You can watch two basic types of broadcasts through Internet TV:....more

Great. That is the direction to go to. When IPTV use increases, Satellite and cable TV will take second place and start becoming extremely cheap and with more free channels. Eventually it will have the same fate as FM radio broadcasts.
The big snag is the new authority given to Bell to apply usage charge on Internet Broadband.

The only problem is that Bell, Dn and DirectTV work hard on IPTV, they will not let it kill their business!

LK does not know anything about IP. Once, I remember her telling everybody, that all IPs are static IPs. She did not know that ISPs usually give out dynamic IPs. She does not know anything about the use of IP for telephony , about VOIP, and now she is showing her abysmal lack of knowledge about IPTV

I've never paid for FM radio , other than buy a receiver.

I did not realize it was their fate , I thought their business plan was to sell air time to advertisers to generate revenue.

Never heard of anybody ever having a subscription to FM radio.

Don't forget AM radio free too.

Americans have never heard of any other country other than their own.
Perhaps you have heard of satellite radio which is comparatively new and you had to pay for it, then you had to pay for some of it and now you have ot pay for fewer channels and many are free - so I hear. I DO NOT use this form of entertainment, so I am not sure.

In 3 Years Satellite TV will be Dead
Will satellite TV be dead in 3 years? As the fact that will it still be broadcasting, probably not. But the double-dipping of commercials and pay for reception is likely to be on the way out.

Why people are leaving pay satellite TV: Subscriptions have continually risen for satellite TV. The companies are now touting the DVR features and accessibility more so than the channels. Have you asked yourself why? It is because more people are turning to internet based TV.

The advantages of internet based TV is simple. Right now there are no subscription prices, all you need to do is get the software and install it. The channels are free. There are more channels available to internet TV watchers than there are to any single satellite subscriber?

Will they charge for subscriptions or content in the internet? There will be charges for content and particular programming. Your pay-per-view type channels will remain that way, but you are likely to never have to pay for the 'regular' channels you now pay for.

The evolution of TV. TV started out as a simple broadcast signal with one, then two then three or four channels for what seemed forever. Now there are channels covering thousands of topics and areas. There is almost no subject that you cannot find a TV channel for '" which is quite amazing.

Right before TV started going to cable, several local TV channels started broadcasting on UHF usually in your larger to mid-sized markets. This was the birth of a lot of local shows. This was the same time that PBS stations started popping up all over.

Cable TV was not far behind and this opened the door to even more channels. The ideas for the types of shows just grew and grew. It was not long until there were 100'²s of channels. When technology advanced, Satellite TV came along for the regular household. Satellite became major competition for cable and offered more channels for the same price.

Satellite and cable started diversifying into other areas, internet, phone service, etc. They both offer DVR or digital video recording so you can pause live TV or just record like the old VCR. Many people are now spoiled by the DVR and will not even watch a show 'live' any more so they can skip all the commercials.

Speaking of commercials: Commercials always been the main source of income for broadcasters, whether the signal is based on radio waves, cable, or satellite signal. It made sense that cable and satellite charge for movie channels and pay-per-view, but they have long enjoyed 'double dipping' by charging to watch commercial television.

Savvy internet techies figured out a way to capture almost all of the satellite signals from all around the world and give them to you for free. The only problem is, a regular computer cannot receive the signal without special software. The software used to be quite pricey, at around $200 a pop. Now you can find it for less than $50, and sometimes even on sale for less.

We all need to watch our budgets. With the economy being bad, and everyone having to pinch pennies, internet TV has been growing leaps and bounds. With people flocking to this service, satellite TV and Cable, as we know it will be gone. They will still exist, but three years from now, they will likely be costing a lot less, or they will be losing subscribers.

It is a good idea to cut your monthly budget by going to internet TV instead of paying for expensive satellite TV every month.
