Satellite TV for PC – Real or a Scam?

Some people think that Satellite TV For PC is a scam, I do not blame them for their thinking. There are many reasons one of them being that people do not understand the working of a Satellite TV For PC. They are not enough educated about free-to-air satellite TV channels and video streaming over the internet. Well for readers who are well aware of these facts they will know that most of these satellite tv or cable tv channels are available for free via live streaming on the internet. Well not only that some paid and premium channels are also there in the list but they apply a delay of 5/10 minutes so that paid subscribers of satellite tv get due advantage, like when some live game is going on.

Here are some reasons people give when you ask them why they think satellite TV on PC is a scam:

1. How can Satellite Tv For PC come with absolutely no subscription fees or any monthly fees?
Well there are many national tv channels in every country that are free, they do not charge any subscription fees from the viewers but on the other hand they do charge all their advertisers a lot of money as viewer base is huge being a free tv channel. The Satellite TV software collects and organizes all the TV streams from the internet [these live streams are exposed by channel provider on a specific IP Address and Port at absolutely no cost] so that you can be able to watch them. Well every satellite TV company that installs a dish also do the same thing, they route these live streams via their satellite to your TV. Similarly the Satellite TV For PC software collects these streams and are already programmed by the provider of the software, but now you can watch the same channels on your computer instead of a TV.

2. Are these satellite tv software’s illegal and hence a scam?
Satellite TV for PC software is not illegal. If you visit the website of some TV channels, you will be able to watch their TV programs from their website itself for free. Such Tv Channels expose the telecast of their programs on a specific IP/Port also called live streaming. Moreover your regular satellite companies like Dish etc also capture these live streams and configure in them in the software on their servers/satellites to pass it on to your television via setup box which sits near your television. Satellite TV for PC software is a programmed to use all these free live TV Streams from across the world. This software was first introduced about 7/8 years ago and had this been illegal then the websites providing these types of software would have been shut down by now along with satellite providers like Dish etc.

3. Some people think Satellite TV for PC is a scam as it is not possible to watch satellite TV channels on your PC.
Well about 8/10 years ago it real would have been a great news, as internet was slow. Even voice signals were transmitted very poorly leave video signals aside. Nowadays internet speeds have increased many folds across the globe making it possible for you to watch videos from Youtube.com easily along with many  TV channels that regularly stream high quality TV programs over the internet so that their viewers can watch TV programs even when they are not at home on their computers. Think of Satellite TV for PC software as bookmarks to all live streams from around the internet and allows you to watch these channels on your PC at home or on your laptop when you are away.

4. Some people think it’s a scam because they are confused about satellite TV for PC software and TV tuner cards (or PC TV cards).
There is absolutely no extra hardware requirement for Satellite TV for PC software. Simply install it on your computer and you are ready to watch 1000’s of channels in no time.

5. Some people say that they downloaded the software and then it asked for an update couple of months later and never worked again.
As there are new TV Channels that are being released constantly, so this software needs to be upgraded to the same reason. Whenever your software tells that an upgrade is available and you are stuck in middle and stops working simply uninstall the Satellite TV For PC software and download the fresh software which will be available at the same url [save the download link that you receive after your purchase] where you first downloaded it from. It is due to these constant upgrades that the cost of this software is not a little more than when I purchased it 3 years back. Now a days it costs about 49$’s. What are you waiting for grab your copy of Satellite TV For PC Software now before the price is increased.

How Does Internet TV Work

Internet television offers a new way of receiving videos that uses very different technology to older forms of transmission such as broadcast, cable and satellite TV. It is a versatile form that can be used on a wide range of devices in addition to conventional televisions. It offers a lot of control over what, how and when you watch, but it can also be used to create a very similar experience to conventional TV viewing.

Internet TV works in the same way, however, it is being viewed. It begins with the conversion of videos into a suitable format for online transmission. This is done through a process known as encoding, which is achieved using special software components called codecs. The resulting digital files can easily be broken into packets of data that can be sent over the internet.

Once encoded, the video is placed on a server, from where internet users will be able to access and view it. They may do this through an internet browser, a special piece of software designed for watching Internet television, or a digital Internet TV box connected to a television. Servers can be configured to control the ways in which the video can be accessed.

When someone watches a video, it will be sent to them over the internet from the server in small chunks or packets of data that have been labeled with the recipient’s IP address and encoded with the necessary identifying information. The computer, mobile device or television on which the content is to be viewed receives the data packets and decodes them using the encoded identifying information to understand the file. The digital file is then converted into a watch able video using the appropriate codecs, and the video appears on the screen. In some cases, functions such as pause, rewind and fast forwards can be used to control the viewing experience, although the exact tools that are available depend upon the type of internet TV that is being watched.

A huge variety of videos are available online. It is possible to access conventional television stations, independent productions. There are live broadcasts as well as on demand, pre-recorded videos online, and you can even purchase online movies or TV program rentals or access television programs that you have missed on your normal TV. Some videos can be viewed free, while others are available on a subscription or pay per view basis. Some videos can only be viewed within certain countries.

Internet television is made possible by high-speed internet connections, so if you have a slow or dial-up connection watching videos online can be near impossible. As high-speed internet coverage spreads and online video content becomes more easily available, it has been suggested that the future of television may lie online. The versatility, superior control and variety of material available online are all important advantages that are likely to make internet TV increasingly popular in the future.
