01 What is TVRO?

TVRO is an acronym that stands for TeleVision Receive Only. Generally
speaking, TVRO is the satellite distribution system for delivering
programming to cable TV headends and systems. Of course, anyone with a
home TVRO satellite system can potentially receive programming for
their enjoyment. To receive TVRO satellite signals, at least a modern
C-Band only or Ku-Band only capable receiver and an appropriate
satellite dish antenna is necessary. Usually with TVRO, the bigger the
dish, the better. In fact, TVRO is often referred to as big dish
satellite television. Unlike direct broadcast satellite (DBS), TVRO
uses mostly open standards technology so equipment and dish sizes can
vary greatly (More on this later in the FAQ).
