To my fellow Canucks who have used their Bell ExPressVu satellite service (albeit against Ma Bell's wishes)in their annual southbound migration to Florida...fuggedaboudit!!!
After ten years of using the service I pay for at home- at my Trillium
site in the south, I find that Bell has leased a different satellite and its beam does not go much below the 49th parallel. No warning...justa a big red bar on the normally green signal graph.
I am told by my service provider who installed the set up at home that the only Canadian source for tv will be by Shaw (formerly Star Choice).
So. standing at the dumpster at Koreshan State Park will be my old 18" bell dish.
To buy a "pay as you go" rig from Camping World will set me back about $400 plus monthly subscription fees...so I bought a cheapie DVD rig from Best Buy and will use the Red Box for my entertainment in the Keys. Up here in Fort Myers I get my HD live off air, but near Key West I will only get the occasional Cuban broadcast.
Thank goodness for Scrabble, E books, and the guitar!!!
Hope this "heads up" reaches those taking their tv and dish with them on their next trip south.
Cheers...Alistair & Inge in The Road Toad heading to the Keys
