In this section you will find out all about newer broadcasting systems (systems still in use today too).
Since the 60's newer types of Television broadcasting methods came to life.
The reason I say the 60's is because of the space race and scientists sending things to space.
The space race was a big part of the 60's with the USA battling against Russia to be the first people on the moon. whilst the space race was going ahead, some scientists were interested in sending satellites into space.
This all links up because without satellites, as we use them now, are used to broadcast Television signals up into space and then back down to earth where they are received by the old TV/Radio masts and then distributed to peoples homes.
However it is not just sky that uses satellites to broadcast their TV service. America has their fair share of satellite TV companies.
While satellite is good most of the time, it can run into problems with changing weather such as storms and windy weather affecting signal quality. As a result some people prefer cable.
A TV home satellite dish can be see to right in the image.
As of 2006, sky introduced an brand new way of watching TV. They invented the service called Sky Go, where sky customers can tune into sky broadcasting and watch highlights, or on demand programs. This software works using an active internet connection to stream the channels and to download the on demand programmes.
