Ocala, Florida October 28, 2017: Ocala Star Banner readers have voted International Satellite & Antenna Service “Best of the Best" in the IT division for 2017!

"We are very pleased that our customers have honored us with this award." said John Pearce, President and founder of International Satellite & Antenna Service. "Providing high speed internet to the unserved, and underserved areas of the county has become a huge part of our business. We currently have over 1,800 active customers on satellite internet and expect this number to explode in the near future. In many areas of the county the fastest speeds available from the telco are below 10 MBPS, the minimum speed we recommend for streaming high definition video. We are now offering speeds up to 30 Mbps, and have plans on offering up to 100Mbps in the not so distant future.

“In the past we have also been bogged down with monthly data limits on our satellite delivered internet services, however, with new advanced data processing algorithms, we are able to offer virtually unlimited videos and data services from companies like Netflix and Hulu.

“Gamming is still an issue, however, many gamers are reporting that they are able to participate in many of the action games that are not first person shooter, or tag games. These games are the next frontier for satellite internet if they truly want to be competitive with the giant cable companies.”

International Satellite & Antenna Service id located 3 miles west of I-75 on SR 200 in the Jasmine Plaza. They are open Monday thru Friday from 8 am to 5 pm and from 8 am to noon on Saturday.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo.--( BUSINESS WIRE )--DISH is now the first major U.S. pay-TV provider to offer a whole-home 4K Netflix experience. After offering Netflix Ultra HD titles on its Hopper 3 DVR since April 2016 , the company added the app to its 4K Joey client. Now DISH customers have the ability to stream the robust catalog of Ultra HD TV shows and movies on Netflix in multiple rooms throughout the home.

“Our customers love watching their favorite Netflix TV shows and movies in Ultra HD on Hopper 3, so we’re extending the app to our 4K Joey clients to deliver the added flexibility of a whole-home 4K Netflix experience.”

When connected to a Hopper 3, DISH’s 4K Joey provides similar TV functionality to other rooms in the home. Hopper 3 supports up to six 4K Joeys simultaneously, powering a total of seven 4K TVs at one time.

“Netflix is leading the industry with one of the largest 4K libraries available,” said Niraj Desai, DISH vice president of product management. “Our customers love watching their favorite Netflix TV shows and movies in Ultra HD on Hopper 3, so we’re extending the app to our 4K Joey clients to deliver the added flexibility of a whole-home 4K Netflix experience.”

To access Netflix’s 4K programming, DISH customers should select the “Home” or “App” button on the remote control, then select the Netflix icon. The app can also be accessed on channel 370 in the DISH programming guide. Once in the Netflix app, Ultra HD titles are identifiable by searching the terms “4K” or “UHD.” With Netflix integrated into DISH’s universal search results, its 4K titles will also be populated in episode lists using the DISH remote’s traditional search functionality.

DISH customers must subscribe to Netflix’s $11.99 per month subscription plan and have a 4K-compatible television to access this Ultra HD content on Hopper 3 and 4K Joey. Netflix recommends an Internet connection speed of at least 25 megabits per second to stream Ultra HD titles.

The Truth About A 100 Mile Antenna!

When shopping for a HDTV antenna, you want to be sure you get one that will receive all the channels that are available in your local area.

Do you need a 100 Mile Antenna? A 150 Mile Antenna or just a 70 Mile Antenna?

The Truth About A 100 Mile Antenna!

Well the truth is, antennas aren’t rated by miles!

A slick electronics salesman back in the 60s put up an antenna and noticed that it would receive channels from 50 miles in one direction, and 50 miles in another direction. It was a great marketing tool and the 100 Mile Antenna was born. Since then, just about every con and huckster in the industry has taken advantage of the consumers lack of knowledge, and sold everything from a set of rabbit ears that look like a satellite dish, to some really fancy, low cost antennas with built in amplifiers and rotors claiming that they will get signals from up to 175 miles away.

Don’t get me wrong here. I sell and use some of these low-cost antennas, and they do work. But, I always make sure that my customers understand what they are buying, and try to set reasonable expectations for what they may receive, and how long the product may last. In most cases, you get what you pay for in the long run.

Antennas are rated by gain, not miles and the best antenna for your location may not be the one with the highest gain.

The distance the signal reaches, in mostly determined by the power of the signal coming from the transmission tower. Many times, we hear radio stations bragging about the power of their signal; “100,000 Watt of Power”! This, along with terrestrial and atmospheric conditions will determine the distance the TV signal reaches.

The FCC regulates the television by Designated Market Areas (DMAs). The networks (ABC, NBC, CBS and the likes) have a designated area of service, and usually provide an adequate signal to cover these areas using a single tower, or multiple towers. In some areas, a television station may be required to block their signals from encroaching into an adjacent markets signals.

There are also Low Power Television Stations that may not cover an area as large as the major networks. There are also many new channels, like ME TV, THIS Tv and others that are being added to the digital channel lineup, and are being transmitted alongside the major networks signals

In summary, if you are interested in learning more about the principals of antenna gain, go to one of the many HAM Radio Antenna sites on the web. These guys deal with signal gain every day as they try to reach out to the world with their signals, but if you are just looking to get the best television signal for your money, I recommend you talk to your local HDTV antenna dealer. After all, he has been installing antennas in your area and should have the greatest knowledge about what works, where, even if you live 100 miles from the TV station tower!


The above are just my opinions, and I am sure that there are many out there that have a greater understanding of how antenna gain affects signal reception; but with 30 plus years of installing and repairing antennas, this is some of the information I have relied on when selecting antennas for my customers. John Pearce, Founder of International Satellite & Antenna Service, Ocala, Florida.

In our efforts to bring you the latest news in satellite and off air antenna technology, below is the latest pres release fro ViaSat, the parent company of Exede High Speed Satellite Internet.

CARLSBAD, Calif., June 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --  ViaSat Inc.  (NASDAQ: VSAT), a global broadband services and technology company, proudly announced today that following the successful launch of the ViaSat-2 satellite on June 1, 2017, the satellite has now completed additional major milestones including the chemical orbit raising phase of the program; and deployment of its solar arrays.

The ViaSat-2 satellite employs a hybrid propulsion approach, using both traditional chemical as well as electric propulsion. The chemical propulsion subsystem was responsible for initial orbit raising and performed according to plan, setting the stage for the next phase of the ascent to geostationary orbit.

With successful deployment of the solar arrays now complete, the ViaSat-2 electrical propulsion subsystem will now conclude the orbit raising process, resulting in the ViaSat-2 satellite's injection into geostationary orbit at 69.9° west longitude in a few months. ViaSat's spacecraft partner, Boeing Satellite Systems International, will continue to control and monitor ViaSat-2 throughout the orbit raising process, flying the satellite from its Mission Control Center in El Segundo, California.

"ViaSat-2 had a successful launch earlier this month, and is meeting post-launch maneuver milestones; including the completion of chemical orbit raising, followed in rapid succession by the successful deployment of its solar arrays," said Mark Dankberg, chairman and CEO, ViaSat. "We are working closely with Boeing to oversee the ViaSat-2 journey in space and monitoring the satellite maneuvers to ensure it's ready for service by early 2018."

For more information on the ViaSat-2 orbit raising process, please read the ViaSat-2 launch blog, located  here .

About ViaSat-2

The ViaSat-2 satellite system is expected to significantly improve speeds, reduce costs and expand the footprint of broadband services across North America, Central America, the Caribbean and a portion of northern South America, as well as the primary aeronautical and maritime routes across the Atlantic Ocean between North America and Europe.  ViaSat-2 is a geostationary satellite that operates in Ka-band frequencies. It was designed to offer high-capacity connectivity and wide coverage, with the flexibility to move capacity to where demand requires it. As compared to ViaSat-1, ViaSat-2 is expected to double the bandwidth, with more than 300 Gigabits per second (Gbps) of total network capacity, as well as provide seven times the broadband coverage.

The Freedom Plan is back in Exede low fill beams. The 150 GB a month data plan is a hit with rural internet users that want to access Netflix and other high usage data services.

But we are not out of the Bandwidth Woods yet. Viasat has reserved the right to throttle you back, or even terminate your service if you regularly go over the 150 data limit.

FREEDOM PLANS
If you use greater than 150 GB of data during your monthly billing period, your web and email speeds may not be slower, but other types of internet use, including video streaming, will be slower until the end of your monthly billing period. When our network is busy, you will have lower priority on our network until the end of your monthly billing period. This may result in slower speeds when the network is busy. ViaSat may contact you and request that you reduce your monthly usage below 150 GB or transition to another service plan. If you do neither, ViaSat may terminate your service, per the   Bandwidth Usage Policy . Service is for residential and non-commercial use.

So life is not perfect in the satellite internet world, but we are pleased with the increased data caps that are being offered in some areas, and are looking forward to the launch of the new satellite in 2017.
