DISH Network Satellite TV Technology | HD, SD, Google TV, DVR & More
As television sets get sharper, clearer and more affordable every year, television programming has had to develop services that meet the demands of customers’ television sets. Satellite TV technology has emerged to bring television connectivity to customers all over the world. In areas that are more rural or similarly, areas that are not serviced by cable providers, satellite TV technology is able to provide a wide range of programming and services. In light of emerging technologies, satellite TV providers like DISH Network are happy to provide for customers standard, HD, DVR, Google TV and internet on-demand content for their customers.
HD or high-definition receivers available from DISH Network have a variety of features dependent on the model. Display resolutions ranging from 480i to 1080p, Dolby Digital audio, DVR capabilities and much more – HD receivers are becoming more and more sophisticated as customer television needs are growing. The main feature, and certainly one of the most enticing, is the provision of a wide range of both high definition and standard definition programming that looks and sounds great on the newest flat screen TV sets.
Standard definition receivers are still available from DISH Network for customers that aren’t quite ready to jump into the world of high definition but still would like a fully featured yet affordable television experience. Standard definition receivers have an elegant and slim form factor that enable customers to view a wide range of standard definition television programming with many convenient features.
DVR technology, or the use of digital video recorders, is an increasingly popular feature that comes standard with many television programming packages today. The luxury of digitally recording television programs, pausing or rewinding live television and skipping through commercial breaks is a feature that is gaining traction from customers all over. Many digital receivers from DISH Network come standard with a digital video recorder with a considerable amount of hard drive space so you can record hours of your favorite HD programming.
DISH Network has a great deal on Google TV hardware which allows customers to integrate their television with existing hardware from DISH Network, the unlimited content of the internet and the convenience of Google search.
Another great feature of satellite TV technology from DISH Network is the option to connect your satellite DVR receiver to your broadband home internet service. This allows your receiver to access thousands of television shows and movies on-demand available in HD or Blu-ray 1080p HD instantly. Order Pay-Per-View events and movies using your remote, and manage your DVR from any compatible computer or mobile device. When you’re connected, you can use your iPad or iPhone as a remote control, search and browse for programs quickly, and schedule and modify your DVR recordings.
