If Logie Baird, the inventor of the television were to come back to the living today, he would hardly recognize the product he discovered in the mid 1920s. The television has evolved over the years and new technology keeps coming up. Back then, television had mainly static black and white images which were grainy. Today, television screens are mega in size and have high resolution, a far cry from the first invention. Television reception has also changed greatly.
Now we have color televisions that have high resolution mega screens which closely resemble the early invention. Even the way people receive their television pictures has largely improved and with the coming up of satellite television, things are really getting better what with free satellite television.
We now have such companies as DirecTV or the Dish Network that have offers for satellite television free of charge as compared to the usual digital television providers. But the question of ‘how free is free?’ still arises. With the current decline in economy, it would be difficult to believe that satellite television could be offered free when we know that satellite television is only for those who pay monthly fees or subscribe.
You may be offered free installation for it but remember that you need the equipment, for example, the dishes that serve to receive the satellite signals, which you will have to purchase and to pay the minimum coding charge, though at a reduced rate. There are costs you will still incur so it is not completely free as such.
These interruptions can be so bad such that you may be forced to keep reloading the program card. Redirecting of signals is an offence punishable by the law and satellite television providers are inventing ways of catching the offenders before turning them to law-keepers, in order to maintain their reputation of being quality service providers.
You may consider the internet as a way of getting digital quality satellite content especially if you have a PC connected to the internet and the right software installed. You can watch satellite television content from it but it is not completely free again since the software necessary to download the content must be bought or acquired. You only need to be careful here as getting a good deal is difficult with so many deceitful people out there.
