Does the thought of having to mount your own delicate and expensive satellite dish keep you from investigating the satellite TV phenomenon for yourself? Think about it-hardly anybody would want to put up with this kind of hassle (not to mention eyesore) in their homes. Why are so many people, then, making the switch to digital television?

Easier than You'd Think!

Installing your satellite dish is a snap now, for several reasons! Number one, the new types of satellite dish that are used by the major satellite systems, like the Dish Network, are tiny versions of the old, enormous dishes you may remember. These dishes are in the ballpark of two feet in diameter-hardly imposing! You can put them up using only the most common household tools.

Maybe the most daunting thing about the old-style satellite dish systems was the way they had to swivel about to face the satellite. Technology has grown immensely since then, resulting in dishes that stay put, blend into your home, and don't require complicated servicing. Considering the fact that it's possible to find deals where the dish network has technicians come and install it for you, there's really nothing for you to worry about.

If you sign up for a contract of a required length of time, then you may very well be able to take advantage of one of these free installation deals. There are also packages that give you the equipment, including dish, receivers, and remotes, completely free! With so many reasons to try it out, it's clear why most Americans are switching.
