My Wife and I the process of building a house in Melaque and are wondering what is the best Sat. TV service to get American/Canadian TV stations? We are US citizens so Shaw/Star choice is out unless that's the only choice, we probaly could get a Canadian address if that is the only way.

Thanks

Your best bet would be SKY, they have different rates for different packages but you can get most channels from the US. I don't know about canadian

We have SKY in Torreon, Coahuila and although it has some English language channels it certainly doesn't have a bountiful selection of channels. For English language news we have FOX and then there are some channels that broadcast programming in English, Spanish, or a combination of the two. For those used to dozens, if not hundreds of channels from which to choose, SKY (at least in Torreon) would be a letdown.

We are from the US and live in Mexico City. We have SKY, but there is no access to local channels in the US. We can only get CNN, Fox News, Bloomberg, and America Network which has canned or edited broadcasts of some of the US TV shows like Oprah and the CBS Evening News. I have not seen any Canadian channels at all. I think the only way you could get that service is to buy your own satellite service.

I agree, Sky is the best choice, Dish is already inMexico but very poor in channels, just 25 channels so, that's why is very cheap $149 pesos per month.

The best thing you can do is carry your satellite receiver from canada or us and purchase a 6' satellite antenna in Mexico. I carried my dish network receiver and I receive all of my channels I was receiving in the us.

The best is to get Star Choice (now called Shaw Direct). If you are not Canadian there are services online that will subscribe for you...

I am in Acapulco and I bought a condo at AcaCondos (www.acacondos .com) and all their suites come hooked up with Star Choice. I have a 40" flat screen LCD that has all the HDTV channels for Canada and the US! It is amazing!

There is even a hotel in Acapulco, called Las Torres Gemelas Private Suites (www . ltgps . com) that has Star Choice HDTV in all the rooms.

Acapulco is in the very south of Mexico so if it works here it'll work anywhere in Mexico
