Is Satellite TV as good as Cable TV?
Yes! Satellite TV uses the same signals from the programmers as cable, it just uses a different way of getting the signal into your house. In fact, most cable companies use satellites to get feeds from programmers or to send feeds to centers that broadcast the signals using cable, so all TV is satellite TV to some extent. Get the same advantages being available across the entire country and often offers more channels for the money‐ making satellite TV a better cable tv provider than regular cable!
