I have been hooked up to Kiwisat since the middle of December. It requires a fair amount of computer work but Ajijic Electronics will help you. They have 771 channels and it costs $708/6 months. The Kiwisat receiver was shipped to Ajijic Electronics. Once they have your receiver they will come to your house and adjust your satellite. Mine points east and is almost on the roof surface. They install your receiver etc. This cost $8000 pesos.
Now, I have had nothing but problems with the Kiwisat system. Almost every night, including the very first night I lose the satellite signal, and off goes the TV. It may, or may not come back on. I cannot begin to explain how complicated this is, and how often, or long it last per night. After a couple of weeks, Kiwisat Miami sent a signal boost to my receiver. This did not help. Unplugging the TV and re-plugging it back in does not help. Sample: Last night was good: I turned my TV on at 4 pm. The TV came on with a perfect picture and sound. Thirty minutes later I noticed the lips were not moving on the person speaking. I knew then that I would lose picture and sound. I was lucky, about one hour later, when I was fixing dinner I heard the TV begin to make noise, and it did come on. I do not watch TV after 7 PM. This is because, unlike SHAW you cannot tell what is programmed on the channels you want to watch. For example: I want to know what is coming on NBC, ABC, and CBS, at 7 pm, 8 pm, and 9 pm. This is not available.
Lastly, I hear there are other people who are now on Kiwisat who do not have my problem. This tells me that the problem is at my end. I think it is the receiver. I need Ajijic Electronics to rule out the connection, and then get me a new Kiwisat receiver box. I will forever miss SHAW after 21 years.
