Thanks for the advice. Is it practicable to get satellite in an apartment building? And do you need a dish for Sirius? (Quick look at web-site, suggests "no".) I like watching soccer, but I'm not addicted and wouldn't mind if it weren't available (I don't have Sky TV here in the UK) but I am pretty keen to have access to the BBC World Service and maybe BBC Radio Four too. I thought that I could get them streamed over the internet, though. If you could get them directly broadcast, I think that would be quite important.
