Who doesn’t want quality entertainment and resolution when watching their favorite shows and sports? While others may be jumping on the bandwidth bandwagon that cable brings, many are opting for the somewhat-exclusive quality of satellite services. Not just for resolution and reliability but also rain-proof and remote access nearly everywhere. There is a secret in satellite service that few know about but those in-the-know benefit greatly from. At Channel Choice, we share all the gouge we have to save our consumers the most possible. The secret is that there are benefits of buying satellite television service from an SBCA member specifically. That said, here, we share how to get the best in satellite-delivered services at a fair price and why you should choose Channel Choice as your provider.
You’ve likely never heard of the Satellite Broadcasting and Communications Association (SBCA) but rest assured it is live and well in the homes of consumers nationwide. As the national trade organization representing the consumer satellite industry, they are committed to creating value-added programs to promote the growth and sustainability of their member companies through member benefits and training. All that to say, that members like your local Tucson Channel Choice can advocate on your behalf for consumer access to the best in satellite-delivered services at fair pricing. Our SBCA membership means you get the quantity of programming and the quality of a better picture – without the added fees and fuss.
Whether you’re aware or not, there are as many scandals with the satellite industry as there is success. The reason being, with great technology, comes greedy taxes. In fact, one of the chief reservations behind consumers not getting satellite services is the rumor of rising tax fees on monthly statements or the unfairly imposed regulations from lawmakers to landlords.
The SBCA is your entertainment ally that is bridging the gap and educating the masses on unfair practices and payments. In fact, the SBCA is an effective tool for educating state and local policymakers, governmental agencies, and homeowners associations. The SBCA (and its members like us at Channel Choice) fight unfair satellite taxes, promote fair licensing legislation and help fight unlawful satellite access restrictions.
You may have witnessed this either as a business owner looking to offer satellite services to your customers (think restaurants, bars, and professional offices) or even as a homeowner who has been unlawfully denied the right to install home satellite antennas because of a misinformed HOA.
This was an all-too-familiar issue with another state, Illinois, in their recent city of Chicago ruling.
In 2012, the City of Chicago enacted legislation that would have raised prices and increased burdens for every Chicago resident subscribing to or considering satellite television. This includes thousands of low-income and immigrant households who rely on satellite service for competitive prices and dedicated programming from their home country.
Just weeks ago, however, on January 11, 2021, the Satellite Broadcasting and Communications Association praised the Federal Communications Commission’s decision to permanently invalidate Chicago’s onerous satellite dish restrictions. SBCA President Steve Hill stated: “We are pleased that the FCC found that Chicago’s dish-placement restrictions were unreasonable, and would have made television service much more expensive for tens of thousands of Chicago residents.”
