    What is the furthest south that anyone has gotten Anik G1

    That's good to know- I'm 30 or so miles to your north-northwest so I guess I can make the investment in the new lnb. Thanks!

    There are sites like Zattoo that actually allow you to do this. If accessed correctly they carry many French channels from both France and Switzerland.
