The Dish Network satellite TV provider is not only one of America's most progressive TV companies but also has a reputation for being at the forefront of the latest technical changes in the provision of programming options. Along with the introduction of plasma and LCD televisions, HDTV (high definition television) programs are becoming more and more popular.

Brief overview of TV Transmission
In 1996 the introduction of Digital TV transmission sounded the death knell of Analog television. Although it's taken many years for Analog to finally succumb to the improved technology that is Digital, the end came in early 2009 when broadcasters had by law to cease transmitting Analog TV signals and transmit only in the Digital format.

Digital TV (SDTV) gave a superior picture and clearer sound than the out-of-date Analog system. Viewers had a TV viewing experience far in excess of what Analog could ever provide.

However in the years since the start of Digital transmission, television technology has improved even further and now one of the latest features is High Definition TV (HDTV). This again is a vast improvement on its predecessor the SDTV and provides a greatly improved television viewing experience.

HDTV is becoming more and more popular with new television buyers particularly at times when an important sporting event such as the Olympic Games is due to start. HDTV is particularly suited to sporting events - the movement of an athlete or a ball is crisp and precise. There is no 'shadow' behind the athlete during fast movement.

What is 'Digital TV' and 'HDTV'
'Digital TV' is the term used to describe SDTV
'HDTV' is the latest form of 'Digital TV' and is simply called 'HDTV'
'Digital TV' does NOT refer to HDTV. HDTV is the superior form of 'Digital TV'

HDTV is the latest and best in modern TV technology
High definition TV was released in the late 90s to much acclaim from the TV experts because of the precise, improved picture clarity and clearer sound. The quality of HDTV cannot be matched by standard definition TV, a point understood by someone seeing HDTV for the first time. Once the superiority of HDTV has been acknowledged, a family will have difficulty in going back to the inferior SDTV format.

A TV's picture quality is determined by the number of vertical lines needed to make up the picture. Between 480 and 576 lines are used by SDTV. The newer HDTV format uses up to 1080 lines, with the minimum at 720 lines. 1080 lines means the picture quality is up to 5 times better than SDTV. This greatly improved resolution is the reason many families are switching to HDTV.

What's needed to enjoy high definition reception in addition to a HD television:

1) A suitable tuner will be needed. This could be incorporated in the TV, or else a set-top box unit may be necessary.

2) An appropriate satellite dish will be needed if the viewer subscribes to a satellite TV provider.

3) The viewer will need to be signed up to receive HD programs from the TV program provider.

4) The whole system will need to be configured correctly.

The increasing public interest and demand for HDTV is influencing the TV providers, both cable and satellite, to provide an increasing number of HD programming options for their subscribers. For example one of the two major satellite TV providers, Dish Network, at present provides over 140 channels in HD format, with many planned for the future.

The future of television is the HDTV format. This and the wide-screen concept give the viewing family want they've wanted for many years - a system that gives them as perfect a picture as possible, together with the very best audio presentation.
