Re: Satellite service & set up?

said by freeeedom :

You do realize that when you are in PA America is you can get your full TV from the online editions of the U.S..... Get some type of temporary Internet connection with about 15-30GB's and enjoy it that way. Unless you like trashbin quality Canadian commercials on U.S. programming.
Unless there is no HiSpeed available. Bare minimum speeds would need to be 2Mbps for a stable stream.

But who wants TV for two weeks of vacation anyways.
Shaw direct used to promote their vacation receiver and portable dish but that may have disappeared due to two people sharing one account. I not sure if the shawdirects/telesats new AnikG1 is going to be more restricted for its Canadian TV footprint. Whenever it finally gets launched and programming(high def priority) gets shifted around on the current satellites(anikf1r/anikf2).

On the far end of the scale is one of them old 8 foot dishes and scraping up whatever tv is still unscrambled on the network feeds.

I will inquire about it thanks.
