The “GLORY DAYS” of Satellite Tv

September three, 1984-Nashville Opryland convention center. Residence satellite Television (TVRO) annual major conference of the year; greater than 10,000 in attendance. On October 18, 1979 the FCC decided house-hold dish systems would no longer require a federal license so nearly five years later, a “TVRO Fifth Birthday Party”! It was a video extravaganza, duly recorded, expanded, and then broadcast October 18, 1984 on two satellite transponders. The almost-two-hour TV version has been broken into 9 segments and can be accessible right here in sequence; this really is #1 of 9.
