How Satellite TV WorksWritten by Gary Gresham
Have you ever wondered how satellite TV works? With over 24 Million satellite TV owners who have chosen to get digital satellite TV, there may be some of you who would like to know how whole process works. Television satellites travel in a geosynchronous orbit approximately 22000 miles above Earth. That kind of orbit just means that satellites are rotating at same speed as Earth. This allows satellites to remain fixed over a certain area and that's reason your small satellite dish can remain stationary. Whether you choose DIRECTV, Dish Network or another satellite provider, these companies all operate their own private satellites. DIRECTV currently has six satellites and Dish Network has nine satellites orbiting Earth right now. Each satellite provider operates broadcast facilities where they gather all of programming from content providers. Content providers are companies like HBO, CNN, ESPN, Showtime, other television networks and programming sources. Dish Network has a broadcast facility in Englewood, Colorado and DIRECTV operates two broadcast facilities in Castle Rock, Colorado and Los Angeles, California.
