The Receiver

Cable – has an advantage for customers who don't want digital service because no equipment is needed other than a TV. If you want digital service, cable and satellite TV are very much alike. Both services need a receiver, remote control, and a compatible TV.

Satellite TV – requires a clear view of the southern upper atmosphere to receive a signal. Customer must have a dish installed to a sidewall or roof and tri pods are available if neither is an option.

The Availability

Cable – spans the distance of their groundwork.

Satellite TV – encompasses the whole southern atmosphere, which is significant because cable TV providers can't reach every home.

The Digital, DVR, and HDTV

Satellite TV and cable TV providers are equal when it comes to digital, digital video recorders, and high definition.

The Customer Service
