Hi
I have spoken to some local satellite install guys on the Island of Aruba and they think if I purchase a very large dish (somewhere from 5-6 meters) I would be able to pick up the US feeds. I own a large sports bar down there and we are begging for the USA feeds. Does anybody think this is possible or are they just trying me out as a crash test dummy. And if you think it is possible, where would I purchase a dish of this size. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

a 16 to 20 foot dish will set you back a lot of money.

It depends on what your looking for, diffrent satellites have diffrent footprints

as far as getting directv, im not sure you could get it there

RP it depends on what you want i see you posted this in dtv section so i 'll give you some info on dtv in aruba sat 110 and 119 of dtv(not dishnet) you can pick them up with a 1.8 m dish no problem even with a 1.2m you'll get signal on the other hand 101 is diffrent the 101 pos has 2 sat and not all transponder of this bird you'll receive .here i would recommend 2.4 m they are not cheap but it depends on what you want to see.

When I stayed down there the hotel had dish network from the US, but they had Directv from Latin America. I think it would be tough to get the US Directv signal there, if even possible. I know Dish has less sports, but they did have it, although it went out quite a bit in the 3 days I was there.

Thanks lupe any help is great. D*v pr only has a certain amount of games so getting the US feed would solve a lot of problems.
