Satellite TV system works like a delivery system. If a person wants to watch shows using a satellite system, he has to go to brokers who make a deal with different production companies in order to have their channels included in the bundles that they offer. It is very much like a normal cable TV wherein you get different channels when you subscribe or register on a particular cable TV provider. On satellite TV terms, this provider is the source.

Center

The broadcast center is the main office wherein the system of operations happens. All the signals from the source that have been signed and agreed upon will be transmitted using combination devices and lines. Nowadays, all signals are digital, meaning you will have better sound and quality compared to earlier versions of satellite TV systems.

Satellite

If you think that the satellite that we are talking about in a satellite TV system is the one that is floating around and near the Earth, you are right. A satellite receives the signal from the center and beams it to the paying households.

Dish

The satellite dish, which very much looks like a dish at home, receives the signal from the satellite. A dish must be perfectly aligned to a specific spot in order to get the signal being transmitted from the satellite.

Receiver

The receiver converts the signal from the satellite dish into a version that can be used by your television. You need a receiver in order to watch different channels from your television set.
