An overview of satellite direct-to-home (DTH) digital television in the Americas is presented, including history, service applications, and a reference architecture identifying key system building blocks. Satellite DTH's relationship to and differences from terrestrial ATSC are highlighted. The paper concludes with notes on the technology evolutions that allowed the introduction of digital DTH satellite service and contribute to its continued growth today.
