Satellite Tv

How does it work?

 

Satellite TV comes from satellites that obit around the planet Earth.  They lock into the Earth's gravity in a geostationary state so they are always in the same position. In Australia the satellite TV signals from VAST and Foxtel services are from two satellites Optus C1 & Optus D3. These two satellites are side by side in the same position. Satellite TV providers specially design the beam of the satellite to concentrate in cover where the populated areas lives or travels. Satellite TV signal is not effected by hills/terrain or distance from terrestrial transmitters like normal terrestrial TV (digital TV) as the signal comes from a satellite in the sky. Satellite signals can be effected by rain, heavy cloud, overhanging trees or by a building blocking the northern sky (the building would need to be very close to the system to block the signal). When a satellite signal drops out or can’t be received during a storm or heavy cloud normally you just need to wait until this weather event passes and then normal service should resume. If you are in a lower signal area a lesser rain or cloud event could block the signal, again just wait for the weather to improve for normal service to resume.
