‘WWTV’ has become a fully-developed technology: the array of opportunities that are stemming from digital distribution of satellite TV programs shows it as best. Still, choosing one out of many may be very cumbersome. At a glance of the market right now, valuable software struggle for attention against the competition of high-pitched, hype-filled offers coming from companies that are eager to claim a share of this business.
Satellite TV software for PC is not the Internet equivalent for a dish, but have significant advantages over cable, because it is cost-effective, and provides high definition television with a management cost extremely limited, if compared against those of satellite systems. So, nothing even near to ‘satellite for PC’, but a network television content distribution with sat TV contents routed by web services to final users.
Correct information is the only clue users might have in this delicate transition moment. Serious companies for example can legitimately claim to deliver shows from more of 100 countries and that last-mile interference would not decrease transmission quality, apart those by network-specific issues.
Another righteous claim is that users don’t need to install extra hardware, to make the most of their Internet-based satellite TV service: being no real need for decoders, the signal is provided ‘as-is’. Smart cards and CAM slots don’t take place anyway in this process, and receiving paid contents does not involve any work at the front end on the user part, by technicians.
Pricing, though, is the part of advertisements most packed with lies. Most companies do charge their users per month exactly as their cable or dish counterparts; despite the advantages, they don’t have their users enjoy the most of Internet access-wise satellite television. Many TV-over-Internet companies are narrowing their window of opportunity on the market, by not rewarding users. Exceptions are, of course.
SatelliteDirect is definitely standing out of the crowd. It only involves a comprehensive fee of $49,95 without monthly subscriptions either or content based billing on any of its 3500+ channels: his success can be backed by a lot of strong points, and very little stick points. It seems not far to be the right candidate for a viral application to receive always-on, always updated Sat-TV on streaming.
