My dad's fed up with his Verizon cable + internet package. It's expensive, and they won't let him suspend it when he's not there for months at a time. He'd like to get his services from a less user-hostile service provider.
Ah, but what kind? Cable? Satellite? Something over phone lines? [more inside]

UK TV filter: Please Help me fix my TV antenna signal. I've recently moved into a new shared flat & am trying to get our TV to work. In the bedrooms there are regular tv aerial sockets on the wall, but there is no signal to any of them. In the lounge, there looks is a panel with three satellite plugs (picture link)
which has an old Sky box connected. We would like to use freeview, but it looks like there is no antenna plug in the lounge, and no signal in the bedroom sockets. The sky box does however seem to get a satellite signal from its plug on the wall, but none of the others will give a freeview signal (or are the wrong kind of socket). [more inside]
I am interested in alternatives to traditional cable/satellite television. We only have one really bad cable provider in the area that I do not want to get cable from. Satellite TV is not what I want either for a variety of reasons. Netflix, iTunes and Amazon TV don't offer the shows I am interested in like Discovery Channel, MTV, Nickelodeon, Nick at Nite, news channels, etc. Is there a way to stream this kind of programming from the internet? I am willing to pay for the service but I cannot find anywhere legitimate to get something like this from. Thanks

The house I'm renting has a satellite dish up on the roof
, and I'm pretty sure I know where the wall-plug for it is indoors. What kind of equipment and cables would I need to do/buy to easily (and importantly, cheaply
) access satellite TV and watch it on my television set? I'm in Australia, if that matters.

Digital satellite? Digital cable? [mi] [more inside]
Economic considerations make switching from cable to satellite look more and more appealing every day (as in same run of channels for about half the price). But there's a problem: I live in western NY, which has, shall we say, weather. Most of my acquaintances have cable and I haven't been able to run down any honest assessments of what it's like to have satellite TV in areas with significant quantities of white stuff. Can anyone out there share their experiences?
