Lets do it first in the cheapest way: The ASTRA satellites offer a wide
range of english language programs:
CNNI as a mix of the original CNN, CNN-Headlines and the international
version, free of charge and 24 h a day.
The british SKY_NEWS is also 24h on air and carries after midnight ABC-news
EUROSPORT carries a lot of US-sports, some events are live
NBC with a mix of US and european programs.
For this, a simple analogue installation with a 60cm dish is suitable and
easy to install.
With a turnable dish of 90 to 120cm you can pick additional US-feeds via
INTELSAT K, ORION and PanamSat on unregulary basis.
To make it really expensive, you could subscribe to ORBIT (starting with US
$ 50,- a month). This package conatins ESPN I and II, some US-Movie- and
Music channels and is directed to the Middle-East market.
You will need a 150cm dish and the expensive Scientific Atlanta receiver.
The service offerd by different european companies. If you need a adress,
please let me know.
