What is the most economical option, that is streaming of course and should you have a solid internet download speed or at least 5 to 10 Megabits per second there are several options. I hope that this discussion includes what the minimum internet speeds you, the user say is necessary. Please read what I have posted and at to this topic and/or correct me where necessary. Another option is satellite TV. Shaw Direct for a short time longer, maybe for another 5 months to 3 years has the strongest signals lakeside and one Satellite antenna of about four feet in diameter is all you need. The trouble is when the older satellites that one can so easily receive if you have a Shaw receiver and an average account of maybe $130 Canadian per month, will eventually wear out and when they do the older birds will be replaced with much more efficient satellites that can better focus their signal on Canada and you will be lucky to pick up the signals as far south as maybe San Francisco, 'But certainly not Mexico. Another option is US Dish network. The signal is fairly strong down here using a 4, 6 and 8 foot satellite dish each pointing in a different direction. Now you need only one satellite dish for US DirecTV, but the signals are a little weaker than DISH above and it would be nice if one could get a Ku satellite dish that is larger then 8 feet. I am told that the average monthly cost for one of these US satellite TV is about $130 US per month I could go on and on, but I am hoping I can start a discussion , Normally I would start this in the Mexico General topic area but because dish sizes could vary a great deal all over Mexico I will start this topic here under the Ajijic, Chapala, Guadalajara Topic where satellite dish sizes would be the same
