Re: Satellite tv?

What Jim said. You can't afford an automatic real-time satellite tracking antenna even if you clear off the foredeck to fit it and install more batteries to power it. You can buy an RV model that will automatically find and lock onto a satellite after you've "parked" and stopped all wave action from rocking the boat.

If OTA won't keep you happy, then your next best bet is an "unlimited data" cellular plan and signing up for an internet tv service. With a cell phone that can "cast" the shows to a larger tv if needed.
