Re: [kwatts7304] US broadcasting in Mexico with Sky

Like I replied in the first answer: You could consider Dish Network from the USA, depending on what size dish and how many dishes.

You can get many Dish Network channels with a good quality 1.1 meter dish, (pointed at satellite 110W), but it often takes a 1.8m or 2.4m dish to get a full suite of programming. Check out Lyngsat's lists of channels to determine which US cities have their network channels broadcast nationally (CONUS beam vs. spot beam), because you need a Dish Network subscription from a city with a strong CONUS beam signal to get ABC, CBS, NBC, & Fox.

In Eastern Mexico http://www.lyngsat.com/packages/dish61.html , http://www.lyngsat.com/packages/dish110.html , http://www.lyngsat.com/packages/dish119.html ,

In Central and Western Mexico: http://www.lyngsat.com/packages/dish110.html , http://www.lyngsat.com/packages/dish119.html , http://www.lyngsat.com/packages/dish129.html

DirecTV is available, but it often has a smaller list of channels available, but it often takes a big 2.4m dish. It also takes a NYC or LA or ??? address to get ABC, CBS, NBC, & Fox channels.

You should be able to get Shaw Direct in your location with a small dish (75 cm? - 1.1m), but I have no idea who sets up satellite TV in your area. I think you have to actually tell us a city name to able to answer your questions.

As I also suggested in my first reply: check out other threads in this forum to find out how these things work.
