Delivered through a communications satellite and received either by a dish or set-top box, satellite TV often provides a cost-effective and comprehensive alternative for consumers seeking TV where traditional cable providers do not offer services. An Earth-to-satellite-to-Earth configuration, the technology works by feeding a signal from an uplink dish that’s pointed toward a specific satellite in space. There, signals are transmitted and then received by a transponder that sends a signal back to Earth at a different frequency.
