By: David Johnson
Article SearchThere really is nothing for free in life and the satellite TV companies do recoup their investment over the long term or they wouldn't be doing it. If you look at the prices of satellite TV system that are available at your local electronics store and the choices that they make available to you and compare those prices to what you are going to pay for the satellite TV service with the free system you will find that its a far better deal the satellite TV providers are offering you. Plus you can do it all with one easy phone call and you are hooked up completely with service and the system and everything. There are a few things you should know about satellite systems and their installation before you select one and have it installed. There are several types of satellite dishes to choose from and the Direct TVs oval eighteen by twenty-four inch oval dish is a great dish that allows for simultaneous reception from their three orbiting satellites.

The satellite dish needs to be installed in a place that gives it an unobstructed view to the southern sky for the best reception. The people who install it for you are very adept at finding the best place to install your dish. Remember that you want to use the least amount of cable as you can so they will take this into consideration when they are deciding where to install your dish. Try to avoid using cheap cable because the better grade of cable does make a difference when it comes time to watch your TV. What kind of receiver you choose should depend on what your needs are for satellite TV viewing. If you are going to an extensive number of channels and doing lots of recording of high definition videos then you will need a receiver that has alot more options that can accommodate your needs in those areas.

If you are only interested in a minimum amount of channels and don't plan on doing much recording than a base level receiver should be what you need and there is no sense spending alot of money on an expensive receiver loaded with functions that you wont be needing. The last word of advise for you is to try your hardest to avoid installing the satellite TV system yourself. If you are buying it from a local retailer new then they have an installation crew that does it for you usually for free. So take advantage of this service and let someone with plenty of experience in installing satellite TV systems do it for you.
