WHAT DOES TVRO MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Television receive-only

Television receive-only and big ugly dish, is a term used in North America to refer to the reception of satellite television from FSS-type satellites, generally on C-band analog; free-to-air and unconnected to a commercial DBS provider. TVRO systems rely on feeds being transmitted unencrypted and using open-standards, which heavily contrasts to DBS systems in the region. TVRO was once the sole, and later the main means of consumer satellite reception in the United States, until the mid-1990s and the arrival of services such as PrimeStar, USSB, DirecTV and Dish Network. While these services are at least theoretically based on open standards, the majority of services are encrypted and require proprietary decoder hardware. The term is rarely used in recent times due to the general move towards pay television and subscription-based DBS services like DirecTV, Dish Network, Bell TV, and Sky TV, although it is still sometimes used to refer to receiving digital television "backhaul" feeds from FSS-type satellites.
