hello,

this might be a common question to newbees here, but what do i get when switching from dishnetwork to FTA satellite?

i just want to watch the major networks in the u.s. and cnbc and anything else that is legal.

ABC, NBC, and CBS available in HD (all 4 times Zones)
CW, MeTV, RTV available
Fox available in SD only via station in Puerto Rico
CNBC not available (scrambled)
PBS, NASA HD, Al Jazeera English SD, Russia Today news SD (Ku band)
There are others available as well.

You will need a 10' C/KU band dish/LNB and an HD receiver

I wonder if there's some new updated satellite channel maps out there. I see AMC9, at 83 degrees west, is not in the list of satellites available. Been looking around for a newer list, but the last one, for my Viewsat 9000, was published in 2009. Also, Lingsat is falling behind on upgrading their channel maps for North America, so their information is suspect.

Just put up a 10'er and used Lyngsat. It was pretty accurate. Only a few subchannels they listed were actually not available. I think its about the most accurate listing available.
