I think it would be more accurate to say that DirecTV US can't legally broadcast in the Bahamas, but DirecTV Caribbean/Latin America can (and does).
And since both (Caribbean and Latin America) carry sports packages (including NFL ST, NBA LP and MLB EI), I would guess that is where the casino is getting their programming from (unless the TS was there earlier than January and before DirecTV blocked Satellite Bahamas from the US signal).
Is the Atlantis Casino receiving any HD programming?
If so then I don't see how that is possible from the DLA/Caribbean service in the Bahamas.
Islands further south around Puerto Rico (Dominican Republic, US and British Virgin Is., etc) sufficiently close to receive DLA's "Beam PR" (Network GLA-2). Or Islands even further south close enough to South America (Trinidad & Tobago, Aruba, Curacao, Barbados, etc.) to receive DLA's South American "Beam Sur" (Network GLA-1), may. But for all other areas of the Caribbean its pretty much only SD programming from DLA via the broad "Beam Oeste" (Network GLA-0) available throughout all South America and the Caribbean.
