Satellite TV gives you many more options to choose from and you can add a huge selection of channels that make up for the possible disadvantages of having satellite television. Choosing a company that provides the service is not easy because they are not all the same, so the advantages and disadvantages of satellite television mainly depend on the service provider you choose.

Types of satellite TV
In the USA, there are two main satellite TV services that are offered by Dish Network and DirecTV. Each of those satellite companies offers great exclusive features like NASCAR Pass, NFL Ticket and other sport channels which aren't available in cable TV. There are two other smaller companies that provide satellite television: VOOM and GlobeCast World TV. The first one mentioned (VOOM) is an HD exclusive satellite network which features programming that is free of commercials – on 21 channels. GlobeCast offers world television and imports shows from different nations, which is a great choice for immigrants in the USA. Depending on your preferences, you can definitely find your perfect match for satellite television and make sure to do some research and decide which channels you prefer for your family before you choose to contract one provider.

Consideration with satellite TV
If you can remember the time of the first satellite dishes, you will know that they were bigger than cars and took a lot of space in our front yards, making them look like they came out of a George Lucas movie. As with all other aspects of technology, huge advancements have been made in this field too, so satellite dishes today are compact enough to be hardly visible on our rooftops. Now let's talk about another important consideration about satellite TV : it is not only used for broadcasting television shows, but it can be also adjusted to receive satellite radio signal from both Sirius and XM radio. Satellite companies also provide satellite Internet which uses the same dish and connects online similar as cable Internet.
Disadvantages of satellite TV
There will be cases when satellites will beam out for reception, so it may be possible for you to lose a connection or experience scratchy images, usually if the weather is stormy and cloudy. In rare cases, snow can build up into the satellite dish and obstruct the reception of satellite TV . Another disadvantage of satellite television is that it can't provide service in certain locations, usually in areas which are densely wooded and there is not an opening that is clear enough for making a connection. However, the great channels make up for all those possible disadvantages, so if you have a chance to make satellite television available in your home, do not hesitate and start your research for a good provider.
