C-Band Satellite receivers

       The Digital Era Is Here!
As you may have heard, there's a revolution going on in satellite entertainment. A digital revolution. Many of your favorite channels are converting their broadcasts to digital; new digital services are already here, with more on the way!  Introducing the 4DTV satellite receiver from General Instrument, the leader in satellite television.

Keep on enjoying all the benefits of your big dish: the choices, the picture quality, the entertainment value, the freedom. The 4DTV receiver will make you appreciate your big dish even more, thanks to its ability to receive crystal clear digital video signals and advanced user features such as its Interactive Program Guide
When you add the 4DTV receiver to your big dish system, you'll be able to receive four types of satellite signals: the analog "in the clear" (free programming) and analog "VideoCipher scrambled" (subscription channels) you've been watching up to now, as well as the new free digital and encrypted digital DigiCipher broadcasts.

Since digital allows more channels on each satellite, you'll have even more programs to choose from so you can watch what you want when you want. Enjoy choosing from over 500 channels initially, and just watch the number of new channels continue to grow. More Pay-Per-View channels so you can watch the latest movies virtually on demand- day or night. Dozens of CD-quality music channels without commercial interruption, new movie channels, sports, news and so much more.

Make your big dish even better

Compared to cable and mini-dish systems, the 4DTV receiver gives you even more of what you want to watch. More sports. More movies. More music. More special interest and international programming. More adult entertainment. And with the 4DTV receiver, you only pay for the programs you want. Unlike cable and mini-dish systems, being able to choose where you buy your programming means you'll always be able to shop for the best price. Thanks to all the additional free programming, the 4DTV receiver makes your big dish system an even better entertainment value-month after month and year after year.

The 4DTV receiver makes it easy to find what you're looking for, thanks to its advanced Interactive Program Guide. Surf all available channels on screen-by category-and move to the program of your choice-even if its on another satellite-with the push of a button. Even adding new satellites has been made simple and the 4DTV receiver can even find your favorite program if it moves to another location.

The 4DTV Receiver is the Clear Choice

The 4DTV receiver allows you to receive first generation analog and digital signals-the same signals professional broadcasters receive. We call it Digital Master Broadcast. You'll call it simply amazing. Razor sharp video, along with crisp Dolby Digital audio will turn your home into a true home theater. There's simply no better audio/video television signal available anywhere at any price.

Freedom of choice. Ease of use. Professional quality first generation signal. It all adds up to the 4DTV receiver-the next level in satellite entertainment.

The 4DTV digital satellite receiver has the most powerful program information and Interactive Program Guide we've ever developed for easy access to hundreds of digital and analog channels. At the touch of a button, you can call up information about every program on satellite-for up to a week-right on your screen. Just highlight your program selection on-screen, press "Enter" on your remote, and the 4DTV receiver will take you there. It's that simple.

You can customize the Guide to automatically locate your favorite channels or entertainment categories. Create two different favorite channel lists, or choose your favorite kind of programming from a wide variety of categories including sports, movies, music, news, education, network series and Pay-Per-View. Then, just sit back while the 4DTV receiver displays only the programs that match your choices.

The Guide displays helpful information including program title, ratings, satellite and channel name and number, start and finish times, and current time. The convenient Mini-Guide allows you to watch a program while you make selections. On-screen icons make it easy to identify different types of programs and special features like Pay-Per-View, interactive services, secondary language programming (in French or Spanish) or system timers. The 4DTV receiver automatically tracks your favorite programs should they move satellites or transponders. Even adding new satellites has been made easy.

The big dish brought the world into your home. The 4DTV receiver puts it at your fingertips.

The 4DTV digital satellite receiver delivers professional quality signals to you right from the programming source, unlike the signals that the cable companies and mini-dish systems downlink, compress and then rebroadcast to their subscribers. We call it Digital Master Broadcast. You'll call it simply amazing.

Hundreds of channels of analog and digital programming in all their pristine clarity. Razor sharp, digital and analog video. Crisp, Dolby Digital technology to deliver Surround Sound audio and digital stereo. Your picture quality will always be better on the 4DTV system. There's simply no better television signal available anywhere at any price.

Digital Master Broadcast. The Next Level of Video and Audio Performance.

The 4DTV receiver is also High Definition TV and Internet access compatible so you'll be ready to take advantage of these services as they become available.

The most programming choices available anywhere. A clearer picture. A sophisticated Interactive Program Guide to make program location and selection a breeze. The ability to expand with new technology. The lowest programming cost of any television system. No wonder we say the 4DTV satellite receiver is truly the next level of satellite entertainment.
