History of satellite television

Origins and the evolution of satellite TV Back in the 20th century, satellite TV was first employed in exploring military options. It was not clear at the time that satellite TV was destined to be utilized for entertainment. However, satellite TV evolved over the years to what it is today. In the early years, Europeans and North American television viewers had to wait for days in order for their viewing tapes to arrive via ship. In the 1950s, there happened to be a tight space race between Russia and USA. Sputnik was the first satellite to go round (orbit) the earth, and 1957 marked the day it was launched by Russians. Six years later, the first satellite communication was launched. The satellite was improved by government entities and large corporations. This satellite was called Syncom II. It orbited 22,300 miles over Atlantic Ocean. Syncom II, was also the first form of telecommunication between the US Navy ship in Nigeria (harbor) and the Naval station in New Jersey. Television going international In 1962, the first international satellite television broadcast was launched. This broadcast was shown across America, Canada, and Europe. This historical event was featured by Walter Cronkite, where the Statue of Liberty and President John F. Kennedy’s speech were covered. The program also showed beautiful scenery across continents, that many people had never gotten a chance to see. It was only fifteen years later that regular television signals were transmitted through satellites. Many people living in remote areas were not able to access normal broadcast sessions, but opted to purchase DTH (direct to home).  It was a large dish shaped device that had an antenna, which was used to broadcast programming that cable TV offered for consumers to subscribe. These dishes were used to transmit TV broadcast from satellites. People would otherwise have received signals the illegal way through Television Receive Only (TVRO) system. Therefore, subscribers would have to buy their own decoders because they had to unscramble the encoded signal. Direct Broadcast Satellite (DBS) system was later formed by Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and it set the stage for all television markets. Later on, Hong Kong and Japan succeeded in launching their satellites for the general consumer market. Satellite TV in United States United States also launched their first satellite and it was referred to as Primestar. DIRECTV and DISH Network followed suit. It became popular for US citizens to use satellite TV and up to this day, some people prefer this to cable. Canada beat United States when it came to Satellite TV. With consistent progress the United States of America has come a long way, but in the end, viable options were discovered. Satellite pictures have become much better, brighter, and of better quality. Do you remember those days when Satellite TV was so big that, it would take up half of your backyard? And the signal was poor too? With time, technology has improved to levels that outdo cable TV. Satellite TV benefits  There are numerous benefits of satellite TV, but here are a few. One is that satellite TV can send broadcasts to different countries. Secondly, satellite TV installation is much easier than Cable TV. Thirdly, satellite TV can be received via a small receiver placed somewhere at the rooftop, as long as it is pointed to the right direction. Satellite TV has come a long way; from its humble beginnings to a service that has commendable reputation. The major disadvantage of sending signals through Satellite TV was that everyone would receive free signals. In the present, satellite TV consumers have grown to over 18million viewers. No one knows what the future holds, it’s only getting better!
