Major networks on FTA
Hey everyone. I'm new to the forums. I'm looking to get in to the FTA world.
I've been interested in satellites for some time, and recently was given the task at work to dial in some back up feeds of CBS. (I work at a CBS/ABC television affiliate). Normally, I am a director and only handle the newscasts with occasional master control. Needless to say, I was intrigued by being able to control the dishes and tune in satellites with the book we have of satellite feeds.
My question to the community is, do very many of you watch the network feeds on FTA equipment? NBC, CBS, ABC? I am talking about the actual **network feed**, not the affiliate feed.
I am looking to purchase an AZBox MiniMe, which my research shows is capable of decoding 4:2:2 chroma (CBS). Does anyone have experience with this receiver? A friend of the family has access to an 8 ft BUG (I'm already learning the lingo), and has graciously agreed to give it to me.
Call me crazy, but I'm looking to watch more network feeds and obscure channels at home! You'd think I'd get enough of it at work. Just looking to get into this field I find interesting (and save few bucks (or a few hundred) on cable bills each month).
