Template:Infobox Network Dream Satellite TV is the first all-digital Direct-To-Home (DTH) television broadcasting service via satellite in the Philippines. Broadcasting from the Dream Broadcast Center located at the Clark Special Economic Zone in Pampanga, channel content is received from program providers, compressed and broadcast via Mabuhay Satellite Agila 2 in DVB and NTSC color format exclusively to its subscribers using the Integrated Receiver-Decoder. Because of the DTH technology, all remote locations, areas beyond cable access and even on Philippine coastal waters, are reachable by the Dream Satellite TV service; the broadcast signal is always clear wherever the subscriber is.
To receive Dream's broadcasting signals, subscribers must acquire a 55 cm in diameter satellite dish antenna, an Integrated Receiver-Decoder (IRD) and a Dream Conditional Access Card (Smart Card). To provide security and protection, the satellite signals of Dream shall be encrypted using a Conditional Access System. Thus, exclusive use of Dream programs and services will only be available to Dream subscribers.  Plus, Dream's IRDs are equipped with features such as an electronic program guide, parental lock, events timer, purchased events list, games and biorhythm, pay-per-view channels, and audio channels.
The Dream system is available at exclusive dealers accessible in major areas nationwide, thus, Dream subscribers will have immediate access to its services. Dream maintains sales offices in the following areas: Makati City; Mabalacat, Pampanga; Calamba City, Laguna; Mandaue City, Cebu, and Davao City.
In April 1997, Dream was incorporated to the Philippine Multi-Media System, Inc. (PMSI). On February 6, 1998, the Philippine Congress passed into law Republic Act No. 8630 which granted PMSI a franchise to construct, install, maintain and operate for commercial purposes and in the public interest, television and radio broadcasting in the Philippines. The franchise term is 25 years. On February 1, 2000, The National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) granted a provisional authority to engage in Direct-To-Home (DTH) satellite services. On February 7, 2001, the PMSI inaugurates its Dream Broadcasting Center at Clark Development Center, and on April 22, 2001, the commercial launch of Dream Broadcasting System, the first DTH system in the Philippines, took place.
