Satellite TV, Cable TV, or Internet TV - Which Is Right For You?

Overview: Not too long ago, there wasn't much choice when it came to TV. Since then a number of options have become available and it can be difficult to decide which one to go with. So how do you choose? In this blog we'll explain a couple of the current TV contenders to help you decide which one is best for you.

If you're thinking of getting a new TV package then you'll be faced with a lot of choice! Nowadays there's a wide variety of TV options including Satellite, Cable and Internet, and it can be hard to decide which medium is best for you. Let's take a look at some of the common types of TV and compare their advantages and disadvantages.

Cable TV

Cable TV is one of the older types of television transmission and it works by sending and receiving signals via an underground network of cables. However, due to the high costs associated with installing the cable infrastructure, cable subscriptions often have very high prices. Expect to pay at least $100 for the standard services and even more for special subscriptions. While cable packages tend to be reliable due to the solid state nature of the cable network, they come with higher prices and this puts many people off.

Satellite TV

If you don't like the sound of high cable prices, then you'll probably love satellite TV. This type of TV broadcasting is special in its ability to transcend geographical boundaries. This means that it can grant certain customers access to TV channels around the world that aren't normally available on cable or Internet TV channels – great news for die hard sports fans. What's even better is that satellite TV costs much less than regular cable due to the reduced infrastructure costs associated with it. All in all, satellite TV is a pretty great option.

Internet TV

With the significant improvements in Internet technology that have happened over the last 10 years or so, it is now possible to stream your TV over a high-bandwidth Internet connection. However, you have to pay for both your initial Internet connection and your Internet TV subscription, and these costs generally occur separately. The choice of channels and content available is often very limited but as the subscriptions are low, sometimes as little as $8, this can be an extremely attractive choice for those looking for a simple and low-cost alternative to cable or satellite TV.

Bottom Line: Whether you're getting your first TV setup or are thinking of upgrading, there are quite a few options out there. For us, the best choice overall has to be Satellite TV. Why? Because you get access to the channels you want, for the price you want – it's that simple! For those of you looking for a budget option and are willing to sacrifice the number of channels available, then Internet TV can also be a good choice.
