Everyone seems to know what satellite TV is, but often enough people are wondering why it is still so popular when there is already digital TV. In order to answer this question, it is necessary to explain the technology of both satellite and digital TV. Satellite television is a way to transfer video signals via satellites. The technology of satellite television is the most advanced and sought after of all others because it allows us to receive steady signals almost anywhere on the planet. The main advantage of the signal transmission is the largest bandwidth. This property specifies another obvious advantage of television. That is, the high-quality images and a large number of television channels are only possible with television. Given the affordability of television, you get the best price/quality ratio when subscribing to satellite TV services. This ratio has provided the most favorable conditions for the intense development of satellite television in recent years. The technology of satellite signal transmission is not new but is still incredibly popular all over the globe. All that broadcast geostationary data can be used by satellite television providers and distributors. Satellites are rotating at the height of 36.000 to 45.000 kilometers above the Earth surface. If we could see the satellites in their orbits, they would form a curved line on the horizon. The arc is called the Clarke Belt in honor of Arthur Clarke, scientist and writer, who published an article named "The Wireless World" in 1945. He was the one to propose the creation of global communications via geostationary satellites. Each has a point of standing in the geostationary orbit (GSO). In many cases, the names of satellites present a number corresponding to the point of standing in the GSO. The satellite only repeats the signal received from the satellite ground complex. Ground Complex or Space Communications Center carries out and controls the operation of the satellite. Ground Complex is also a source of satellite TV broadcasting. The signal is formed in TV studios and transferred to the Space Communication Center via special channels. All satellites have several transmitting antennas, which focus on those areas of the Earth's surface where the massive reception is supposed to be. The signal from the satellite antenna is transmitted in a form of an electromagnetic beam with a maximum intensity at the very center of the beam. Depending on the intensity and quality of the received signal, it is possible to select the most appropriate antenna diameter. In order to facilitate this task, there are maps of the coverage area. These maps show the quality and intensity of the received signal in a specific area. The TV providers are trying to simplify the procedure of subscription to their broadcasting services. For this purpose, they offer special sets of equipment for better connection. The receivers in this set have built-in encryption and all necessary functionality to ensure uninterrupted signal reception. It should be noted that the quality and intensity of the received signal is calculated after adjusting the possible interference or loss of reception due to atmospheric phenomena.
