8. Pros and Cons of satellite television
February 28, 2020 – 07:08 pm
|Offers literally hundreds of channels both TV and radio from the same box
||Awkward to set up the satellite dish and set-top box along with the cable run needed
|Can be received in remote areas that are not in range of a terrestrial transmitter
||The satellite must be in clear line of sight. Often a tree or a building may be in the way
|Can be received in 'dead spot' areas. These are areas where the terrestrial signal is very weak and noisy for some reason.
||Hardware is expensive as well as paying for it to be fitted
|You can choose to just use the free-to-air services or opt for a monthly subscription service
||Can be dangerous if you choose to try and fit a dish yourself on the roof or high up on a wall - use a professional!
|Can choose to use 'pay-per-view' for occasional interesting programmes or sport event.
||Subscription fees are quite expensive - typically a £100 to £500 per year.
|If you are an 'ex-pat' and want to see television in your own language, then satellite is a good option to check out.
||Can be affected by severe weather such as a rain storm or snow
|Dishes could be unsightly, especially the larger ones needed for more unusual satellites.
|Tend to be only used in a single room, unless you pay for a 'multi-room' arrangement
