According to the footprint maps, you just might be able to pick up its C-band signals near New York City, but the signal would be weak, so you might need an extra-large C-band dish, and the elevation would be very low (flat), so you'd need a clean line of sight in that direction.

All the Ku-band signals look hopeless except the "US beam", and according to LyngSat, that beam isn't being used for anything right now.
Yes, FTABlog is active again. Why do you ask?
