Are you looking at satellite dishes or VHF/UHF antennas?

Depends on the channels you plan to watch. But don't buy an old Canal Digital or ViaSat tuner. They are not suitable for watching free channels properly.

Ive done the research and some satellite feeds are not encrypted. So yeah, with the right dish and equipment you can get free Satellite TV service even in the US. It just wont be any of the big pay networks. 

I just want to sit back and watch the world burn.
