How The Satellite TV Works?

Even though majority of the households in the world have got televisions in them, not many people know how the television signals make it your TV. All the satellite TV companies use high powered satellite service that is located thousands of miles away from the planet to provide your TV with signal transmission.
Satellite service is a very advanced technology and consists of many components that include an uplink station, high powered satellite, an antenna as well as receiving unit. The following are some of the critical components that help in providing you with the signal transmission.

Satellite Signal
It is the broadcaster who produces the content and then they set up contracts and agreements with other providers to carry their programs. Once the content is produced by the broadcasters then it is sent to the satellite provider who encrypts into a digital form and transfers it to the uplink station so as to transmit it.

The Uplink Station
In communication means, the uplink station can be used for describing the radio signals transmissions from earth to a high powered satellite that is situated in the outer space. Usually, the uplink stations are set up with small to very big dishes that range from a couple of feet to up to 40 feet in diameter. Bigger dishes have got the capability to send much more information at a fast rate and are also much more reliable than the smaller dishes. Each of the uplink station transmits data to a particular satellite in the sky in a prescribed frequency range.

High-powered satellite
The uplink station helps to encrypt the data and then sends it to the high powered satellite. This data travels several thousand miles into space. The satellite rotates within the geosynchronous orbit.  It’s interesting to note that the rate of rotation of satellite matches with that of earth; otherwise this technology wouldn’t have been possible.

Small Dish Antenna and Satellite Receiver
Unlike earlier days, the satellite dishes that are used these days are economical and ranges from 1-3 feet. Also, people prefer to install bigger dishes as it increases the signal reception. Since the satellite cable is not connected to any other network, thus your system is not shared and there is absolutely no room for error in case of any problem.

Lastly, end users will receive the channels based upon the service subscribed by them. The availability of the channels will depend upon the satellite providers. The main advantages of the satellite TV is that it can be setup anywhere regardless of the location. However, since the signal remission depends upon the atmospheric conditions, you might face some difficulty in signal reception when the weather conditions are windy or cloudy. As there are plenty of Satellite TV service providers out in the market, you must devote some time and effort in comparing various services so as to ensure that you get the best deal.
