At one time good old over-the-air broadcasts were the only way TV audiences could enjoy their favorite programs. Today we have hundreds of channels to choose from thanks to cable and satellite TV. While cable really started to take hold in the 1980′s, satellite came on the scene during the 1990′s and has been gaining ground ever since.
Satellite TV offers all the programming that cable does and maybe more. In addition to all the channels you’d expect to find, such as the big broadcast networks, satellite TV also offers all of the major national “cable” channels. You’ll find channel listings for satellite TV on your favorite TV service site.
Viewer favorites such as Discovery Channel, Food Network, Nickelodeon, Lifetime and many more are all available with satellite TV. There’s also plenty of action for sports fans from channels like ESPN, MLB Network, NBA Network, Fox Soccer and regional sports channels to name just a few.
Satellite TV really shines when it comes to international programming. Few, if any, cable providers offer the variety of international channels that satellite has to offer. From Latin America to South Asia, you’ll find sports, entertainment, movies and series programming from countries around the world.
Satellite also offers viewers access to the major movie networks like HBO, Cinemax, Starz and Showtime. Once known only for broadcasting movies, networks like HBO are now producing their own popular award-winning series programming.
Where TV entertainment is concerned, satellite TV has it all. You’ll be hard-pressed to find television programming being offered anywhere that compares with satellite.
