• Programming sources – the channels that provide programming for broadcast.
• The broadcast center serves as the nucleus of the system.
• The satellites capture the signals from the station and transmit them to Earth.
• The viewer’s dish passes the signal it gets from the satellite and forwards it on to the receiver in the viewer’s house.
• The receiver obtains the signal and then sends it on to a standard TV.

Satellite Receiver
It is the last constituent of the satellite system. It performs the following functions:
1. It deciphers the encrypted signal.
The receiver needs the appropriate decoder chip to unlock the signal. The satellite signal makes it possible for the decoding chip to be adjusted.
2. It acquires the channels apiece from the larger satellite signal.
Whatever channel you choose on the receiver, sends the corresponding signal for that channel in to the television. The receiver can exhibit one channel at a time, which is why it goes the same for the televisions you have at home. You could never watch two programs at the same time unless you buy an additional receiver.
3. It receives the digital MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 signal and translates it into a form that can be comprehended by standard television.
