Not only did digital cable open the door to more channels, it came with viewing options, like Pay Per View selections that offer live sports events and music concerts. And VOD, or Video On Demand that gives the cable TV providers the ability to offer wide selections of programs and movies that can be watched on the individual’s schedule. This feature can be used to catch up on programs the viewer might have gotten behind in, or to catch a favorite movie for the second time. Cable TV providers also now have the means to offer a DVR or Digital Video Recorder. This has the capability to record shows on one channel, while viewing shows on another. Or it can be used to control the viewing selections ordered on Pay Per View. The DVR allows the subscriber to fast forward, rewind and pause these live TV events to fast forward through commercials or replay the incredible moments. Parental Controls are also a product of digital cable that allows the parents to control the amount of adult content that is allowed into their home. Parents are better able to shield young minds from mature content and keep them entertained with healthy programming.
The introduction to digital cable also brought about broadband internet services that give up to six times the speed and performance of DSL, through the phone company. There is no comparison with dial up at all. Broadband internet services not only surpass the competition with speed, but with the amount of data that can be transferred. Surfers can now download music, videos, movies, games and other large files, in the blink of an eye. Whereas other forms of internet can provide results and large downloads, broadband delivers faster speeds with a more stable connection.
Digital cable also introduced digital phone services. Cable TV providers deliver excellent phone services in which the subscriber can make unlimited local and long distance calls, usually through out the continental United States and Canada, for one low price. Subscribers get calling features like voice mail, call forwarding, call waiting, three way calling and more for a lot less than some phone companies can offer it.
Cable TV providers offer more than just services with digital cable. They are also able to provide cheaper rates, especially if these services are bundled into monthly packages. Subscribers can get all three services for one low monthly rate. Subscribers can go through one provider to get three services that save time and money every month. Not only do cable TV providers have the ability to provide more entertainment and communication services, but they have the ability to provide these services at a better price.
As a result of digital cable, the home entertainment industry has been revolutionized, with many more options than analog cable ever had the ability to offer.
