    "Satellite dish" is the term used to refer to the antenna when you are addressing non-technical readers. It is the common term for a TV antenna/receiver system.
    "Parabolic Antenna" would be the term used by technical people writing for other technical people.

    Here is the definition that is given in Wikipedia. The definition mentions that "satellite dish" refers to the parabolic antenna used for receiving TV signals.
    Satellite dish

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    A satellite dish is a type of parabolic antenna designed with the specific purpose of transmitting signals to and/or receiving from satellites. A satellite dish is a particular type of microwave antenna. Satellite dishes come in varying sizes and designs, and are most commonly used to receive satellite television.
