No. Australia is "over the horizon" from satellites that are aimed at the USA so it is not possible. Having said that it is often possible to view the same programmes on channels all over the world but obviously at different times!
satellite, you can steal it... lol cable is probably
Yes, the same shielded coax cable is used for satellite dish and cable.
The only advantage that satellite internet has over cable, is that in certain locations where cable is unavailable, usually satellite will provide television services.
For use with satellite TV and Cable TV you must use RG 6 coaxial cable. If you have older wiring in your home you may have RG 59, which is not recommended for use with satellite television.
no, cable tv works with a whole different process, where as satellite tv would be using satellite technology, so basically no is your answer !
Cable and satellite TV can go out at anytime and have connection problems sometimes.
You will be needing a satellite tv receiver box to get signals from your satellite dish. A coaxial cable will be connected from your satellite dish and to your satellite receiver box. Once it is connected, an AV cable or HDMI cable will be used to connect the satellite receiver box to your standard tv or HDTV.
The difference between satellite tv service and cable is satellite tv offers more channels and are more expenisve. No, they don't receive their signals from a satellite.
The difference is that a satellite television requires a satellite signal to pick up the data whereas a cable television can receive it through cables such as fibre optics.
Yes, Its the same type of cable used by satellite TV installers.
Satellite TV is better only in some cases. It is better in areas that have no cable service or have very limited cable selection. In some major areas with cable carrier competition, satellite is actually more expensive than cable. Satellite TV is a great choice for those in rural areas. This is because cable has a limited reach because of isntallition issues.
Cable vs. satellite TV is based solely on preference. Satellite TV is a little more unreliable when it comes to storms and the signal going out. But cable TV also typically offers less channels and perks.
Yes, satellite TV is clearer than cable TV. It also has more channels and you can read more at www.directv.com/DTVAPP/content/directv/competition Satellite isn't always clearer than cable. If you have a HD television and have HD cable services, the picture is very crisp! Satellite is easily knocked out in a thunderstorm.
The short answer is yes and no. Yes you can if you are not passing HD satellite. All you need is 2 "diplexer(s)" (looks like a splitter, but isn't). at one end connect the satellite and cable. run the line to your tv, and split back to your satellite and cable. The Diplexer is labelled "tv" and "satellite".
I have had both satellite tv and cable tv in the past. Both types of service ran around the same price.
No, other options can include cable television or internet television, a satellite dish is just one of a few options
no it is not . it is a cable provider. satellite is made up of channals around the world that are not provided by direct tv. Satellite is world wide.
Cable TV service, especially digital cable TV, is as good as satellite TV. The only difference is, cable TV is still there when a storm occurs and won't have to keep searching for a connection like satellite TV is known to do.
The best way to tv, phone and cable would be by contacting time warner cable and purchasing these services through them, and the best way to get satellite would be through a satellite company.
As long as you have a direct line of sight to the satellite, it should be no better or worse than cable tv service.
I live in Arlington, TX. What companies offer cable TV service that aren't satellite?
If money isn't a big factor in your decision, you should get cable. It generally more reliable than satellite.
If you are asking if you need to have cable television, at the same time, then the answer is NO! But, you DO need a cable connecting the satellite to your television.
The benefits of cable over satellite is mainly the contract. With cable you are not forced to sign a 1 or two year contract to be able to watch tv. You will not have wires hanging all around your home with cable which can be annoying. Another thing is you can watch the same cable in many different rooms without having to rent additional cable boxes for other tvs. For cable television, you need only the cable box to connect the coaxial cable from the wall to your television. With satellite television, you need the receiver as well as the dish. Cable television will generally continue to be viewable during inclement weather, while satellite television will often go out during storms. With satellite television, you may periodically need to replace or reset the dish, as it can be knocked from its position or damaged.
The amount of channels you get from either a satellite tv or cable tv provider usually depends on your package. If you get a digital cable set top box it's usually around the same amount of channels as a satellite provider.
