What's a Satellite? is the first half of the twenty-sixth episode of Ready Jet Go!.
An Earth-orbiting "telecom" communications satellite breaks down, and satellite TV service in Boxwood Terrace stops working. Three people can't watch their favorite shows and consequently get very upset. Jet decides to fly up to space and see what the problem is with the satellite, and hilarity ensues.

A satellite is an artificial object that has been intentionally placed into orbit. Satellites are used for a large number of purposes. Communications satellites receive signals from Earth and bounce them back to other locations, for everything from GPS to cell phone service to TV shows. Satellites are usually semi-independent computer-controlled systems.
- This is the first episode to focus on satellites.
- The shows that people wanted to watch:
- Sydney - Commander Cressida.
- Mr. Peterson - a soccer game.
- Carrot - an Earth cooking show.
- We finally get to see inside Sydney's house.
- It is revealed that Boxwood Terrace gets TV service from satellite, not from cable.
- The credits for this episode and Satellite Selfie credit Mitchell's voice actor, even though Mitchell didn't appear in the episode. It is possible he was going to be in one of the episodes, but was cut for time.
