The television system of satellite TV works starting in the broadcast center that relays signal of TV programs to a satellite that orbits above our earth. After the satellite captures the signal, it is sent back to earth where it is picked up by a satellite dish and then relayed to a television unit. In order for you to receive the satellite signal, you would need the satellite system that is composed of a dish that captures the satellite signal and the receiver that unscrambles the signal and sends it to your TV set.
