Interactive TV and Cable vs Satellite

Is there a difference in interactive programming with cable television compared with satellite television?

Cable television will bring with it an interactive, electronic program guide that pops up on your television. Cable will also offer you On Demand videos, movies and shows and On Demand subscription services in many areas.

Satellite television will bring with it an interactive, electronic program guide that, like cable, will be available through your remote and visible on your television screen. You will also be offered Pay-Per-View programming and DVR (Digital Video Recorder). DVR allows you to fast-forward, rewind, pause and stop programming as you are viewing it.
