With a larger c-band dish you will receive in the US many free of charge
signals on satellite. A dealer will allways try to sell you some
program-packages, because he makes a living from this.
Have a look into the international frequency list of TELE-satellite magazine
(7-8/96) or check the SATCODX-pages via TELE-satellite online.
