Sorry if this has been asked and answered. I tried searching the forums, but it's hard to find appropriate search terms. I live in the Tampa, FL area. I am not currently subscribed to any satellite TV service nor do I own any equipment. I would like to know if it's possible for me to receive either KIKU TV Honolulu or NTV Japan, with either DirecTV or Dish or any other satellite network. I think KIKU is carried by DirecTV as a local channel in Hawaii. If I subscribe to DirecTV, can I receive local channels from other markets? Alternately, is it possible to point my dish at the NTV satellite and receive broadcasts from it? Sorry if these are dumb questions. I have absolutely no experience with satellite TV.
