December 26, 2008, Newsletter Issue #96: Reception Quality of Cable vs Satellite

Tip of the Week

Is there a difference in the reception quality you receive if you have cable television versus satellite television?

Currently, cable television offers both analog cable and digital cable. Beware, though, that come February 2009, analog cable will go by the wayside and digital cable will be your only cable choice. If you have analog cable right now, you may notice that your signal is not as strong as with digital and that the signal you receive is weaker. Also, your picture quality isn't as clear as it is with digital cable.

If you have satellite television, you will find every channel available to you in digital format. You should have clear viewing on every channel and reception should be clear when compared to cable television. It is important to remember that satellite television often has interruptions because of the weather, while cable television does not.
