Yes, we have a similar system, but forget it, because everything is
synchronzied in German. This means a Chinese actor speaks fluently
German. With a dish-size of 24" you can watch a lot of free to air
channels (digital and analgue), but you canīt use your US-receiver.
Complete analogue systems are available for a little as US$ 200,- (in
good quality) and a complete digital system with a suitable free-to-air
receiver costs about US$ 600,-. Depending on the choosen satellite, you
will get channels in nearly all languages.
