The Satellite TV High Definition Revolution Is Here

It was not so many years ago that the viewing public was first notified that a newly upgraded format of TV entertainment was to be making its way into homes everywhere that was called “high definition”. Most people weren't sure what to expect and all were quite surprised the first time that they saw a high definition picture on a TV set at a friends home or an electronics retailer.

 Its always best to see it for the first time at an electronics retailer, because they seem to have nature programming playing on all of their TV sets and nature programming is outstanding to view in high definition. High definition programming has been widely accepted by viewers everywhere and in fact a recent survey by the Consumer Electronics Association determined that over 29% of American households now have a high definition TV set in them. Acquiring a high definition TV set is only the first step to enjoying high definition TV programing though, because the next step is to get the programming itself in insufficient quantity, so that it may be enjoyed to its fullest. Satellite TV programming is the only service where you are going to find the large quantity of high definition channels that you need to have a complete selection in your viewing repertoire  and this is due to a few reasons. The first big reason is that cable companies are at an extreme disadvantage technologically speaking, because they are very limited in the number of high definition channels that they can carry. High definition TV programming is a very data “rich” or “intensive” format to broadcast in and for this reason alone cable companies are confined to the few channels that they can actually fit through their cables. Another related reason that cable companies are limited in the number of high definition channels that they carry is, because they quite simply choose to be and its just that simple. The decision makers in the cable industry have decided that it is far more cost efficient and expedient for them to focus less on the infrastructure upgrades  that are required for them to compete with satellite in the high definition market and focus their  recourses elsewhere, such as their on demand pay per view services. Cable companies have a certain percentage of their total market that is “captive” and they know it. These are apartment dwellers and people who for any one of a number of reasons such as being blocked in by terrain or buildings can't get satellite reception. Satellite TV service provider have to adhere to a far more stringent standard because they have to continually compete with cable and standard service as well as entertainment options such as DVDs. This is why while most cable service provider offer only a handful of high definition channels at best, all of the leading satellite TV service provider are quickly closing in on one-hundred channels each. In fact many experts have predicted that in the not too distant future satellite TV programming services may be entirely high definition.
