Broadcasters realized that everyone hadrepparttar potential to receive satellite signals for free, and they were not happy. Butrepparttar 138207 Federal Communications Commission (FCC) was governed by its open skies' policy, believing that users had as much right to receive satellite signals as broadcasters hadrepparttar 138208 right to transmit them.

In 1980,repparttar 138209 FCC establishedrepparttar 138210 Direct Broadcast Satellite (DBS), a new service that consisted of a broadcast satellite in geostationary orbit, facilities for transmitting signals torepparttar 138211 satellite, andrepparttar 138212 equipment needed for people to access repparttar 138213 signals. In turn, broadcasters developed methods of scrambling their signals, forcing consumers to purchase a decoder, or a direct to home (DTH) satellite receiver, from a satellite program provider.

From 1981 to 1985,repparttar 138214 big dish satellite market soared. Rural areas gainedrepparttar 138215 capacity to receive television programming that was not capable of being received by standard methods.

The Satellite Broadcasting and Communications Association of America (SBCA) was founded in 1986 as a merger between SPACE andrepparttar 138216 Direct Broadcast Satellite Association. But by this point, American communication companies had soured onrepparttar 138217 prospect of satellite TV. Broadcast cable was very successful at this time, andrepparttar 138218 satellite industry received a lot of negative press coverage. Fifty percent of all satellite retailers closed their businesses.

Business eventually recovered, butrepparttar 138219 illegal theft of pay television signals was still a problem. Ultimately, encryption has proven to berepparttar 138220 ultimate salvation of repparttar 138221 satellite industry as it has maderepparttar 138222 transition from a hardware to software entertainment-driven business.

Early successful attempts to launch satellites forrepparttar 138223 mass consumer market were led by Japan and Hong Kong in 1986 and 1990, respectively. In 1994,repparttar 138224 first successful attempts in America were led by a group of major cable companies, known collectively as Primestar.

Later that year, Direct TV was established, and in 1996,repparttar 138225 DISH Network, a subsidiary of Echostar, also enteredrepparttar 138226 satellite TV industry. DISH Network’s low prices forced competing DBS providers to also lower their prices. And an explosion inrepparttar 138227 popularity of digital satellite TV ensued.
