Dish Network - A Better Viewing Experience
Competition is heating up among the satellite television service providers and the cable companies, with Dish Network exceeding 12
million subscribers and growing. This is exciting news as digital satellite programming holds the advantage with
100 percent digitalized high definition signals that provide crystal-clear pictures and superior CD quality
sound. The delivery of the programming is only exceeded by the expanded diversity in programming selections, and
Dish Network gives the subscriber ultimate control over what is viewed and heard in the privacy of the home.
When you utter the words 'there's nothing on TV' or 'just watching the tube', it is time to make the switch from
cable to satellite. Once you experience the difference, you will never regret your decision to change to Dish
Network digital high definition satellite television services - it is change for the better.
Cable television's bandwidth is limited so the qualities of pictures will not as good of quality as
satellite. Cable wire transmits signals from a transmission system located near the home. The signal is
passed from the hub system and is split among the homes receiving cable service. Each time it is split, the
signal is a bit more degraded (lessened in quality). Cable is also radio frequency based and is changed from
audio/video signals to radio frequency signals and then must be changed again back to audio/video before
finally reaching the television. As this process is being done, additional broadcasting signals, also known
as interference and static, may be picked up and appear as noise on the television screen. Digital high
definition satellite signals provided by Dish Network eliminate this problem entirely.
Dish Network's fleet of 9 satellites transmit signals that remain digital until intercepted by your
receiver. This assures the best in imaging and audio clarity and increases the resolution of the picture and
quality of the sound. The sound is true stereo, CD quality, and often it is Dolby Digital surround sound. The
availability of programming is expansive, including 256 channels of programming plus 50 channels of Sirius
digital music. Dish Network provides 100 percent digital high definition programming in all selections
whereas cable selections are few and limited. It should be noted, too, that Dish Network also provides
national digital satellite services to many digital providers. Although Dish Network provides digital
signaling only, the receiver for standard viewing transfers it from digital to analog.
Interlaced and progressive signals influence the appearance of imaging on the television screen.
Interlaced signals are associated with the scanning format of imaging and often results in black horizontal
lines across the screen or sometimes even in half the image appearing. This interference creates stress and
eyestrain on the viewer and a poor television-viewing environment. Digital high definition satellite signals
produced on high definition televisions, however, scan all lines progressively with the screen being
refreshed on a continual basis with no obstruction and/or interference in television
Dish Network's offer of 100 percent digital high definition satellite services is certainly a step
forward in improving the quality and selection of your home entertainment system.
