    I think they might help Satellite Tv Store

    I usually buy everything i need from these people. They even offer free forward shipping to be send here in Aruba. They have Dish Network and Directv as well as FTA Equipment.

    A friend of mine just got a satellite system and I am going to see if it is what I am looking for. I also saw a "Sky Satellite" store the other day. I am going to stop in and see what they have. I will post a result of what I find. . .

    Hi Andrea, I did look into a Sling Box and it is not at all what I was looking for. It needs to be connected to a TV in the states and only sees what that TV sees. Also, if you change a station here, it changes there too. I am still researching a satellite but not having much luck. .

    I used to have direct tv, but was not happy with it at all. This was quite a few years ago, so they may have changed. I have an old number for Dish tv that someone gave me, if you would like it.
    I have the slingbox and am very happy with it. You do need a cable or satellite connection in the states to get the channels. I have 2 connections, one at my son's home and one at mine. It is connected to a cable box and the router. It does not interfer with the tv at the house. It is not connected to the tv. We do have 2 cable jacks though.
