Dispelling myths about satellite TV

Pay TV gives you a wider variety of programs which you can tailor to meet your interests, lifestyle and needs, and involve little additional cost. Setting up a satellite dish is also not as complicated as you may think.

Myth 1: Pay TV is expensive.

Satellite programming is offered in packages, so you only pay for a small fee for channels that you want to watch.

Myth 2: Pay TV is not available for people who live in apartments.

Unless you cannot install a satellite dish because your apartment faces south or your view is obstructed, you can subscribe to Pay TV.

Myth 3: Installing a satellite dish is complicated.

Installing a satellite dish is generally simple, just make sure that nothing is blocking your dish from receiving a clear signal from the satellites.

Myth 4: HD TVs consume a large amount of electricity.

Old TV models consume more energy compared to new HD TVs. If you get your TV calibrated, your electricity usage goes down.

Myth 5: HD TVs need expensive cables.

Expensive cables are not necessary. Short cables are good as they limit interference. HD TVs generally use an HDMI or DVI cable.
