    i'm thinking of getting a sat system but dont want to go the sky route.
    what are the alternatives?
    i'm looking for a system that can pick sport channels such as eurosport, general entertainment, news channels.
    i'm not looking for a system that needs a huge dish either.

    what should i be looking for? :lease:

    I am a newb but I think a dual LNB with a DisecQ Motor system should do the trick...
