    Default Satellite TV

    Is there satellite TV available on the North Coast, like say, Sosua and surrounding areas? Do you have reliable internet service? One of my kids is looking at going to college online. Thanks

    After the N3 struck last year, most receivers have been down. I-link, Kbox, Conaxsat and Sonicview are up, but with some freezing. There are also some new brands that are working, like Sonysat and Limesat. Nfusion has been down for 3 months and is now working via private server only. All the receivers are able to get only Dish, not Bev.

    You can also get a sub to Sky and Claro TV here. Most channels are in English with Spanish subtitles. If you're coming from the US, you can bring your own sub to Dish or Directv.

    CoreyH, What does Satellite TV have to do with going to college online?

    If he will be renting an apartment/room satellite TV may not be a viable option, dishes are not small in this country like the U.S.

    In order to get DISH or DirecTV you may need a six (6) foot satellite dish.
    Probably best he stick with Sky which uses a much smaller satellite dish (3ft ?).
    I believe Claro TV uses cable.

    I guess I was asking two questions at once. We as a family are looking to move to the DR. We're going to buy a house so the dish question is for that. The internet question is for doing online college classes. Sorry for the confusion.

    Windeguy,
    It's a nice long list of English language channels... if one can receive the English audio. ClaroTV

    Do you know if one can get English audio on these? If so, it's the best package I've seen offered here.

    While you're at it... the page indicates the basic plan is by satellite, but the advanced and superior are 'por IP' ClaroTV

    PLAN AVANZADO
    Es un servicio de televisión digital por IP, que te ofrece la mejor y más personalizada experiencia a través de la televisión, a través de funcionalidades únicas en el mercado.



    If so, I wonder if available in Cabarete. Probably not

    Nothing happened!

    Appears to just have been an advertising gimmick, a very bad one at that!
