As more people are able to watch media on the personal computers, there has been an increased demand and desire for satellite TV connections. Without the recent innovations in high-speed and broadband internet, there is no way that one could receive programming, and it was even a further reach for HD programming. But now it seems like if you can’t stream HD programming, the website sucks. Yes, we might be spoiled but it’s the level of convenience that we have grown accustomed to over the recent years.
You can’t just boot up your computer, go to a website, and start watching satellite television (at least that’s legal anyways). I do know that you need some sort of subscription package. My friend has DirecTV and he was watching one of the NFL games last year while he was at the airport. Just a live, Fox feed of the teams playing with the announcers. He said it was amazing and made his satellite subscription totally worth it. There is some software that needs to be downloaded or perhaps even purchased, not to mention a certain level of package that you must have in order to have the computer capability. But as the advances in both internet connection and ease of receiving satellite programming, the amount you could save on a cable bill could be used to buy a desktop that feeds into a television. All you’d have to do is just boot up the desktop and then throw the feed on the television via an HDMI cable or something. Plus this would eliminate the need for installing a dish. One would just have to make sure that the internet connection is very strong and very fast.
