I get the original question. Sorry for hijacking the thread. The question is about the online TV programs that are advertised. You download a software
program, and they guarantee you will get 200 or 300 channels with no further charges. The problem is that these channels are received through the internet. So, if you have an internet connection while you are sailing (such as a broadband
card), and the signal is strong enough to get reasonable speed, you can watch 300 chanels of TV. Unfortunately, if you have a slow, or no connection, you can not watch anything. The PCTV software allows the PC to work as a receiver (Not sure if it works with digital signal). The downloadable programs only allow you to stream from a site.
