The idea was originally popularized by a Science Fiction author Arthur C. Clarke in a story published in 1945.

It didn't take the world that long to catch up. The first satellites used for television signals were launched in 1962. The Telstar and Relay 1 satellites broadcast signals from Europe to North America and from the US to Japan.
