satelliteDirect.tv sucks. It is virtually impossible to find a channel that works and you don't even know that it is current.
They claim access to 3500 channels around the world but realistically about 70% of them don't work and then they try to get you to pay 10 dollars a month to access movie or other channels. I did not subscribe to this but heard that this was a scam as well. I wasted 50 bucks on this thing. And because it was a voluntary payment my credit card company refuses to reverse the charge as well.
I have learned my lesson.
If it sounds too good to be true it probably is.
