Television is one of the oldest sources of entertainment that many of us may remember from our childhood. The TV time used to be an opportunity for family members to come together and spend some time together. This has made a lot of us develop fond memories and a deep relationship with TV viewing. The TV viewing experience e has changed for the better and today you have SmartTVs that can play a variety of content such as OTT apps and even Games using the Wi-Fi network. The DTH television too has made the viewing of telecasted content more feature-rich and visually stimulating. Modern televisions have also come leaps and bounds ahead of their previous generation in terms of picture quality. Yet at times, despite having a brand-new TV with great specs on paper we don’t get the picture quality that we are looking for in our television sets. The television set that was showing the amazing quality video becomes dull and does not provide a detailed picture as it did in the showroom. The problem, in this case, may not be with your television set but instead with your DTH connection.
Standard Definition and High Definition Channels
When we upgrade our Television, we also need to upgrade our DTH Set Top Box or STB to provide the higher resolution content to the television. The SD or standard definition channels are the right choices if you have the older generation television such as with the tube and separate audio and video ports. The lack of an HDMI port means that the HD STB is not compatible with your TV. If you use the flat screen LCD or LED TV of the newer generation and it has an HDMI port, you can easily go for the HD STB. Although a little bit expensive than the SD, the HD box with help you make use of the full viewing capability and clarity of your TV. Once you have done this you can also subscribe to HD channel packs which will provide plenty of high-resolution content.
