The Digital Satellite System (DSS) was developed by Hughes Electronics Corporation under the Direct TV name. Hughes has long been a major manufacturer and operator of communications satellites, and established (started testing) Direct TV in 1990. The first high power Hughes satellite DBS-1 was launched in 1993 at 101 degrees, and two more have since been launched into the same slot to give DSS a capacity of 200+ channels.

DBS orbital frequencies at 101 degrees were owned by Direct TV and USSB, and in 1991 these two companies formed an agreement to market their combined channels under the DSS name using the Hughes DBS satellites and the DSS equipment. Direct TV has since bought out USSB and discontinued using DSS as a trade name.
