Dish Network and New Developments in Satellite TV Technology

By: David Johnson

If you stop to consider it for a moment, it is the TV programmers themselves who are responsible for developing the new technology for the public to use when they bare watching TV. Who else is going to do it? Some of the hardware such as high definition TV sets is developed by other industries, but even then they do it in conjunction with TV programming service providers.

Some TV programmers more than others have been quicker to do the research and development than others have and this is one major reason why TV programming stagnated and remained technologically stuck in the mud for so many decades. Cable service providers considered all their work done after they complete their task of running their cables down every street in America and into most of their homes and businesses.

The last thing they needed was any form of change, because they had a real cash cow with no competition and a captive customer base. They charged what they wanted and provided what they wanted and their viewers had no choice but to go along with the bad deal.

The visionaries who built and put the first TV broadcasting satellite into orbit had nothing but change and development on their mind when they did it. They knew that if they could provide more and better quality programming and at a better price, the TV viewing public would respond and they have.

Dish Network has been spearheading some of the most technological advanced developments is TV programming since its inception in nineteen-ninety-four. They have successfully put twelve satellites in stationary orbit around the earth, to provide a far more clearer and reliable signal to any and all of their viewing family members with.

They have recently shaken up the industry with the launch of their new Mobile Dish satellite system that is designed exclusively for recreational vehicles of all sorts. The satellite TV systems that people have used up until the advent of Mobile Dish weren’t designed and engineered to be used in recreational vehicles and the result was that they had some glaring problems and weaknesses for people who used them in their RVs.

The dishes had to be set up and repositioned every time that an RV came to a stop and they had to be taken down when it was time to even run a simple errand in the RV. Real time programming was unavailable on the road and unless there was prerecorded programming, the TV was blank. This meant that the cable weather channel was unavailable when it was needed most and checking the road and weather conditions in the path of a RVs journey was impossible while driving down the road.

Mobile Dish uses a permanently installed low profile antennae to receive a full one-hundred channels of programming, that can be watched any time at all and there is no need to even touch the antennae. Most importantly the programming comes in bright and clear while the RV is zooming down the road and that is the time when it is most needed. The researchers and developers at Dish Network are working on still more technological advancements that are scheduled to be brought out for their viewing family in the not too distant future.
