Diameter. ) DBS television services provide VOD and PPV, as well as continuous programming, and content is encrypted to prevent unauthorized viewing. Dish Network uses the DVB-S (Digital Video Broadcasting-Satellite) standard with QPSK modulation, while DirecTV uses its own, slightly different transmission system, also based on QPSK. There are numerous DBS service providers in other parts of the world. Key features are the capability to cover very large areas—many countries or even a continent—from one satellite, generally with capacity for large numbers of program channels.

Many network feeds are carried, but very few individual broadcast stations have their programs distributed in this way. Digital Satellite Broadcasting In the United States, direct broadcast satellite (DBS) delivery of digital television service to the home, also known as direct-to-home (DTH), has been provided by several operators, although currently there are just two competitors: DirecTV and Dish Network. Like cable operators, these are referred to as MVPDs. Unlike cable, however, DBS service is just as easy to provide in rural areas as it is in urban locations, and therefore a high percentage of DBS users are in rural areas not well served by cable (or even terrestrial) broadcast services.

The main difference from ATSC, apart from the details of the picture formats used, is in the technical method of transmission, in which DVB-T uses orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM). An enhanced version of the standard, DVB-T2, was introduced in 2008 using more efficient, advanced modulation and coding techniques, providing a significant increase in capacity of the channel. As with ATSC in the United States, DVB-T (or DVB-T2) services will eventually replace analog television broadcasting in the countries where it is used (and in some cases, it has already done so).
