Better, Faster and Easier. These were the hallmarks of American development ever since the dawn of the industrial revolution. These are the sought after qualities ingrained in the very notion of invention which helped bring us towards the digital era. Although most of the initial attributes have changed, we now prefer scaled-down to bigger for example, but the drive to continually improve persists. You don't need to look further than your satellite tv to recognize the attitude of advancement alive today.
The Technology of Choice
Satellite TV by itself represents a remarkable achievement both in telecommunications and entertainment. Pairing advanced satellite and receiver technology with increasingly different channel lineups and packages that permit you to customize your experience satellite television providers like DISH Network have been able to capitalize on the ideals that entertainment lovers and consumers appreciate: price, service and most importantly choice.
But as mentioned before continuous improvement is just as much an illustration to me of a company's value as anything, and this is the reason I mentioned DISH Network. Two of their recent promotions can be seen as proof of their dedication to not only to gratify buyers but to be the future of satellite TV.
HD For Life
It can be tough to judge whether new technology will be successful and have any endurance. Just ask Betamax, Laserdiscs and Minidiscs. It is safe to say however that High definition is here to stay. If you have ever watched a hockey game or a motion picture in HD and switched over to the regular resolution alternative you will understand that hd is clearly superior. You can find an ever increasing number of programs produced in HD and many more channels that offer HD exclusively. It's not hard to see that HD may eventually become the norm, just as digital broadcasting officially replaced analog a few years ago.
DISH Network tips their digital high-def hat to the superiority and probable ubiquity of HD by offering FREE HD For Life. Yup. The former fee for access to DISH Network HD has now been waived. Now you can enjoy the enhanced picture, the integrated 5.1 surround sound and the overall better experience of high definition for free.
Another recent release that proves that DISH Network is continuing on the cutting edge of entertainment is their Slingloaded DVR. Anyone who has ever used a Digital recording device knows how dramatically they've changed viewing habits. DVR's give the power to watch programs at a time you want. The new slingloaded DVR goes a step further and permits you to watch wherever you want. With this set top DVR you can watch your recorded shows from a computer or cell phone, anywhere you want to. Other providers allow you to watch a few on demand programs through specific web portals, but only DISH lets you actually access the videos recorded on your DVR remotely. Now that is really TV everywhere.
It is plain to see that DISH Network will remain one of the leading satellite TV providers.
