Getting a new HDTV can be an exciting thing for you and your family. There are a lot of benefits that come with having an HDTV. For example, it will mean that you're prepared for the digital TV transition in February of 2009 because HDTV sets have the digital tuners that will be necessary in order to watch over the air TV signals after the analog versions are phased out at that time. An HDTV will also allow you to take advantage of some of the best new video gaming systems that are designed to display their graphics in high definition! In addition, your new HDTV will allow you to take advantage of the great experience of watching movies on Blu-ray discs. However, if you don't have access to HDTV programming then you won't be taking full advantage of your HDTV set and thanks to its new Turbo HD service, Dish Network is now the best source of this HDTV programming.
In order to understand the significance of having access to HDTV programming it might be a good idea to back track a big and have a look at what exactly HDTV programming is. HDTV programming is a step up from standard definition television (or SDTV) programming. This step up involves more lines of pixels for a higher resolution picture and a better sound format for sound that will envelop you in the action that's taking place on the screen. Plus, even though many standard definition TV shows now have this as well, HDTV programming must be in the 16:9 aspect ratio that will provide you with a wider view of what's happening on the screen. The thing about these differences, especially the higher resolution, is that they make it so that you need a special HDTV set in order to take full advantage of HDTV programming. Conversely, if you just watch standard definition television on an HDTV set, then you are missing out on that clearer picture and possibly the aspect ratio, and probably the higher sound quality as well.
Order a Dish Network system from one of the country's largest dealers, DishPronto.
The reason why Dish Network is such a good choice for HDTV programming is simply because it has more total channels than any other TV service provider. This increased number of available channels is due to the roll out of the Dish Turbo HD service that Dish Network rolled out back in August. Dish Turbo HD cranked up the number of available HDTV channels to over one hundred and the total number of national channels that you can get could be as high as one hundred and fifty by the time you read this!
On top of the huge number of Dish Network HDTV channels that it makes available, Dish Turbo HD also provides the first (and so far, only) programming packages that are composed exclusively of HDTV channels! This means that you can totally dispense with all of the standard definition channels and switch completely over to HDTV programming. This is a good move because many of the best TV shows currently being made are now available in HDTV and this gets rid of the redundancy that you're likely to have if you subscribe to both HDTV and SDTV channels at the same time (which is still an option through Dish Network, by the way).
As you can see, Turbo HD from Dish Network pushes HDTV forward.
