Satellite is superior to Cable TV… isn’t it?
Guestpert: Darren Campo

Speaking Point: The best pay TV service, be it satellite or cable, is the one that provides the best content at the lowest prices. Consumers don’t care if the TV and internet comes through the air or through a cable, they care about what’s on the screen. Both cable and satellite have three aspects that matter most to consumers: 1. Price 2. Reception 3. Service and equipment. Here’s how the three stack-up against each other.

Speaking Point: 1. Price: At first glance, satellite TV appears less expensive than cable TV. A visit to Comcast or Time Warner Cable websites shows their monthly rates to be more than Dish and Direct TV. However, the satellite companies generally require a two-year contract to secure that lower price, plus installation and equipment fees. Pay attention to the fine print so you know what you are getting into, and how easy or difficult your pay TV service might be to get out of.

Speaking Point: 2. Reception: Both cable TV and satellite have issues that will eventually improve as technology improves. With massive amounts of data transmission for high definition and on-demand viewing, freezing and pixilation are common issues with both satellite and cable. Each also has unique picture issues: Satellite: A common complaint is signal degradation during heavy rain. Another concern is with debris collecting on satellite dishes, such as snow. This can be easily dealt with so long as your dish is not in a location that is difficult to reach. Cable: Cables running underground are usually located next to other cables that carry phone lines and electricity. Occasional outages can be caused by maintenance work or flooding. Both cable and satellite companies have to negotiate with

Speaking Point: 3. Service and equipment: Cable boxes, satellite dishes and even remote controls are property of the provider. If you cancel your service, the cable or satellite company wants its equipment back. You can return these items easily by mail. A satellite dish attached to a deck, roof or side of a building may require some cosmetic repairs to wherever it was attached.

Speaking Point: It often seems that people with cable wish they had satellite and people with satellite wish they had cable. Customers are notoriously unhappy with both for customer service and technical problems. Whether imagined or real, the grass is always greener on the other side of the dish/cable.
