You could install a FREE-TO-AIR (F.T.A. ) satellite dish and get about 150 channels for FREE ! No monthly fee and not illegal. Do a search on utube for FTA satellite for more info. Essentially, you will get a LOT of foreign channels (no HBO no LIFETIME, none of that). There are about 50 satellites you could aim at, but most FTA enthusiasts just lock in to the satellite called GALAXY 19 located at 97 degrees in satellite arc. You will get about 8 christian channels in english. and a few of them in spanish and other languages. A Russian News channel (in english). Lots of foreign programming, some of it subtitled in english some in chinese etc. Also the channel called Al-jazeera is worth the effort just for that channel alone. they show news from iranian perspective and lots of entertaining stories... not propaganda as you would believe.... and its in ENGLISH! Here's how to tell if you can receive that satellite if you live in the CENTER of the USA. Go outside your house with a compass. Look directly SOUTH. Now look UP at about a 45 degree angle. (hold your arm up pointing due south at a 45 degree angle. You are pointing approximately at the satellite! If you are pointing at a bunch of TREES or any thing else, you can NOT get this satellite.If you are pointing at clear un-obstructed SKY... you can probably receive that satellite. If you live further east or west, then this crude aiming is not accurate for you. The dish and box etc will cost about 200 dollars approximately. You will have to do a lot of RESEARCH on utube etc before building your system. You will need a 30 inch or 36 inch dish. The smaller ones will not work. I bought my setup at SADOUN.com Be sure your city allows dishes 36 inches before purchasing.
