I was wondering if anyone here has free satellite TV. I have thought about buying a receiver for myself but I wouldn't be able to use it anyway until I move out of an apartment (when I finish college). And for those that don't know, just like back in the 80s you can pick up free satellite TV thanks to the FCC. Of course companies like DirectTV and Dish have sued to try to get things changed but fuck em. If you have enough dishes you can pick up about 6,000 channels. The only draw back is that since your taking feeds from satellites you have to manually update your channel playlists each week via the internet from many tech forums. Or you can just wing it like old-school cable. That way you can just leave your USB thumbnail left in the receiver box and flip through the channels and ignore the playlists since they will be from weeks prior. And when it asks for an update you just reboot the box and it reads the channel list still on the USB drive. But for having to take 5 minutes to do that once a week you get hundreds of free channels, that make their money from commercials anyway, plus pay-per-view movies and events like boxing. I'm just curious if anyone here actually has these type of boxes and if they are working out for you. It would be nice to have the HD boxes I may get something like that in the future.
