Continued from page 1


Here it gets really interesting. Cable TV can handle up to 260 channels. Satellite TV can handle more channels. Also, Satellite TV is more advanced in HDTV (High Definition Television) services.


Usually Satellite TV is less expensive than Cable TV due to many additional costs that are related to Cable TV: franchise fees, taxes, plus costs for any pay per view services, and equipment costs. Dish Network Programming Package starts at only $29.99 per month.

Interactive Services

In general Satellite TV has more interactive services than Cable TV. Digital services like Dish Network's DVR (Digital Video Recorder) which givesrepparttar option to rewind while recording even in live broadcasts, EPG (Electronic Program Guide), Instant Weather, video on demand, etc. are all available on Satellite TV, but not all are available on Cable TV.

High Speed Internet

Cable has high speed broadband internet services. Satellite TV has this too, but is somewhat slower. Directv®: offers Direcway High Speed Internet, which is ultra fast but somewhat expensive.

The adventure in performance reached a dramatic frenzy withrepparttar 138208 Taiko performance. It was a unique style of drum playing that comes from Japan.

Yet, it wasrepparttar 138218 lighting designs that influenced my perceptionrepparttar 138219 most. The designer setrepparttar 138220 tone ofrepparttar 138221 stage acts by what Luc Lafortune, Mystere’s Lighting Designer calls, “sculpting spectators”. By reinventingrepparttar 138222 use of light he was capable of sculptingrepparttar 138223 emotions and feelings of his audience. He believes it isrepparttar 138224 “chiaroscuro” that isrepparttar 138225 lighting designer’s anvil. It was how he was able to create contrasts in hues, angles and beams that drawsrepparttar 138226 focus and transforms a scene from humorous excitement to tragedy. I know because as I watchedrepparttar 138227 play of light on stage I felt my emotions swell with each illuminating color and incandescent shadow.

The musical score providedrepparttar 138228 show a freedom of expression that reached beyondrepparttar 138229 stage and conjured memories of a mysterious past.
