Some of you may still be confused about cable and satellite television. You ask yourself, “Is there really any difference between the two or are they just one and the same?”
The truth is, both are the same in some ways and different in several aspects. Their similarity lies in their use of digital technology to deliver numerous channels of various genres to homes across the globe. They are also both capable of providing high definition programming.
Satellite television has a wider coverage in that it can be accessed by homes located in urban and even rural areas. This is its major advantage over cable which normally is limited to town centers and cities where the cable can reach.
Quality wise, however, satellite TV may have the edge over cable. But bear in mind that its reception can also be easily affected by bad weather such as when there’s heavy rain or snow. This is the reason why a dish needs to be installed in an area with no obstructions to ensure your television receives the channels you have subscribed to.
