Many people tend to confuse satellite TV with the satellite internet services, which are not the same, especially when it comes to the providers menu of services. While there are many companies that deliver internet via satellite, the number of providers that sell the satellite TV service is often reduced.
Therefore, most of the providers that offer other home services, like internet and phone, will choose to partner up with a company that offers TV via satellite and allow customers to bundle chosen services with this TV option.
Also, many of these satellite TV services include Digital Video Recording (DVR) functionality, that makes available for the client the options to record, rewind and pause live TV across their channel’s packages. Good picture and stereo sound quality are features of this kind of TV as well.
For those who do not wish to install a parabolic antenna in their households to receive the satellite TV signals, there are providers that offer a type of service that is streaming based to do that.
