Shaw or Directtv work here. Dish Network not so much. The further south in Belize you go the harder it is to pick up North American satellites. With Directv you don't get any HD channels. You also don't get CNN, ESPN and other favorites. You also need a 5 foot minimum dish. Shaw you can get all the channels, but it's hard to find a technician that can install it correctly. The new Shaw DVR's require 2 cables run to them from the dish which makes it even more complicated.
Your best bet is to get local cable. They carry all the USA stations and most of the NFL Ticket Package games as well. You just can't record anything.
Stupid should hurt!
